How did you get started in Rally or Rallycross?
I borrowed my Girlfriend’s (now wife of 19 years) new Dodge Omni GLH Turbo while she was at work and entered my first autocross. I won my class at my first event and I’ve been hooked ever since.
What are your future goals?
We are competing for our third consecutive Group 5 championship in the Central region but mostly, we want to have fun and put on a good show for the folks out on the stages
