Describe your first win.
 
Well a first win that stands out is my first World of Outlaw win. 2018 at Williams Grove on the opening night of the National open. Awesome win especially considering the circumstances being my first race at Williams Grove against the Outlaws and the PA Posse. Best night of my life.

What TV show are you binge watching right now? 
 
Just got done binge watching both seasons of Formula 1 drive to survive. Such an awesome inside look of how the F1 world works. 10/10 would recommend.
 
Besides racing, what activity do you enjoy doing?
 
I just enjoy spending time with friends and family. I don’t have a whole lot of hobbies that don’t involve racing.
 
Who is your racing idol?
 
My racing idol is Danny Lasoski. He’s won over 100 world of outlaw races, 4 Knoxville nationals. Not a whole lot in racing the guy hasn’t done. Just someone that’s truly worked for everything he’s had in life and is still successful being involved in racing today.
 
What sports teams are you a fan of?
 
Not a big sports guy, but I can tell you my favorite athlete is Dustin Johnson, who’s a golfer.
 
If you weren’t a race car driver, what would you be doing? 
 
If I wasn’t a racecar driver, I would’ve definitely been a machinist/fabricator or some kind. I love working at my dad's business building anything and everything and learning every day.
