Living the dream!
I bought my first motorcycle shortly after high school and soon realized I had a need for speed. Luckily I had some good influences that pointed me to the track. After watching my first AMA Pro race at Road America in 2003 I knew this was something I wanted to try. I competed in two Champion Cup Series (CCS) race weekends in 2010 and earned a third place in my last race of the season . The next year I teamed up with MadisonSportBikes Racing and competed in three full seasons as an amateur in 2011, 2012, and 2013. At the end of 2013 I wrapped up 5 championships and received the bump to expert for 2014. Progressing forward each year has been a challenge but incredibly rewarding thanks to lessons learned in Jason Pridmore’s JP43 School and continued support of my team. In 2018 I will try to qualify for MotoAmerica’s new Stock 1000 class at Road America. I’m incredibly grateful I’ve been able to enjoy this exciting sport and share it with my family and friends.
Track Day Advice:
Start out small and stick to a budget! If riding your motorcycle on the racetrack is something you really enjoy invest in training like MotoVid’s 101, 201, 301, or Jason Pridmore’s JP43 class. Worth every penny!
