“We’re heading out on the road, but we don’t have to travel too far for a couple of races in a few days. I love Kalamazoo. We’ve won our first CRA race there back in 2006. Man that seems like so long ago,” Smiled the Wyoming, Michigan driver as he prepares for the ARCA/CRA Super Series portion of the prestigious Kalamazoo Klash XXIII. “We nearly won the Template Super Late Model race there a few years ago before it became an ARCA/CRA race. Hopefully we’ll go down there, run well, keep the car clean and then head to Flat Rock in a couple of days. Hopefully it’ll be a good weekend for us and we’ll get ourselves a couple of strong finishes.” He added.
Despite missing two races within the ARCA/CRA Super Series, he is still an impressive seventh in the season long points standings with two victories. Those wins came at Toledo Speedway (OH) back on April 11th and at his home track of Berlin on May 16th.

Ironically prior to the August 1st race, he has never made a JEGS/CRA start at his home track, the fast 7/16s (0.437) mile semi-banked paved oval in Marne, Michigan.
“We weren’t even thinking about going to that race until about three days before. The car was in pieces from getting wrecked down in Indy (Lucas Oil Raceway) the previous weekend and we didn’t even have a crate motor to use,” Laughed the 36-year-old West Michigan standout.”With the race being at home (Berlin Raceway), we all pitched in; got the car back together, borrowed a motor and we did real good. I can’t say enough about this team. We’ve been fortunate enough to enjoy quite a bit of success there. The fans are really great to race in front of and it’s a bonus that the entire family was there too.” He ended.
In racing action at his home track of Berlin, he has three Feature wins on the season in the tracks Boyne Machine Company Super Late Model Series. Concentrating primarily on Berlin throughout the 2015 racing season, he is second in the tracks mini-series points just eight markers out of the points lead with just two points nights left on August 22nd and August 29th before the historic fairgrounds facility converts over to a dirt track for the month of September.
