Racing History: I have raced for 4+ years on a small
 paved circle track in Northern Cal, UKiah Speedway. I have driven several forms of Cars, from Hobbystocks, Bombers, Latemodels, Modifieds and roadcourse cars. I then made jump to roadracing 3 years ago while still circletrack'n in Ukiah. My circle track racing days, have offered me  great experiences and I have won several races and my Highest honors came as I was awarded Rookie of the Year in 2003. In that year I  took 6th in points out of 24 cars. I then got bug to go roadracing and I purchased a well raced 1971 ITS 240z. I got my SCCA racing license and worked with a great racer.... Tom Wickersham, just trying to learn the ropes. I still use this car today as my instructing car. I became a NASA instructor in 2004. I waited a while to figure out what type of racing I would go for in the NASA ranks. Thru much poking and Proding I purchased my factory five and this will be my first full season racing with NASA.
