I’m also looking to launch an entrepreneurial venture. A fragrance line of his & hers cologne/perfume.

What motivates you to drive: I have a million dollars’ worth of fun racing each week. Love most of the people I’ve met in our local racing community- other drivers, their crews, the speedway staff, and of course the fans. I spent 2016 watching a lot of racing at Seekonk Speedway, and I’m still humbled and honored to be running alongside them now in the pure stock division. Also, I have just as much fun during the week preparing for a race as I do the night of racing. There’s an awesome bond we have, and working to put on a good show for the fans is always a lot of fun. I’m the least mechanically inclined guy in the shop, so I learn something seemingly every five minutes. That is motivating. Being behind the wheel is humbling. My rookie year in 2017 I drove a race car/ in 2018, I become a race car driver. When I get a win I’ll likely get my first tattoo.

Anything else you would like the fans to know about you?: Always grateful to meet the fans and getting a chance to thank them in person for coming to Seekonk Speedway. Enjoy some great racing!
