What did you start racing ( moto, bikes, cars, etc)? I started racing moto when I was 4 years old. Suffered a crash around 12 years old and stopped racing moto. A couple months before turning 17, I started racing short course in a ProLite, and around 22 years old I started racing Baja in a 1600.

I've always looked up to both, my dad and older brother. They've been my mentors since the beginning. Also Ivan Stewart, Robby Gordon, Jeremy McGrath, Rick Huseman and Evan Evans. 
Future racing goals?
Win the overall in the Baja 1000 in the Trophy Truck class. And also win at least once, the San Felipe 250, Baja 500 and the desert challenge. Hopefully race a couple of BITD races.

Hang out with friends, snowboard, ride my dirt bike, travel, and anything that involves some sort of adrenaline.
