Short Bio: Grew up around racing. Dad raced during the 60’s and 70’s thru Minnesota and Iowa. I guess its in the blood. Seven years ago my best friend from back in high school comes over and said he had a plan for us to go racing again for a while. He said he always wanted to be able to have a car run at Knoxville, and we did. He passed away on us about a year and a half ago and we only ran about 6 times last year. The rest of us thought it would be nice to make this year a tribute to him…
