Many Go-Kart championships and wins from 2001-2005
I raced go-karts on dirt from 2001-2005. I then started racing Modifieds in 2006.
My first Modified race was April 8, 2006 at the Desert Thunder Raceway in Price, Utah. I finished 9th in the feature.
My first Modified win was September 16, 2006 at the Desert Thunder Raceway in Price, Utah.
I have won atleast one race every year I have been in a Modified.
In 2007, Tracks in Utah became IMCA sanctioned for the first time. Also, it was the inaugural year of the WWMT.
I picked up 4 wins in 2007 and became the first Utah state champion and was the first from Utah to win the Western Region Rookie of the Year title. We also won the track championship at Desert Thunder Raceway in Price, Utah and took third in the WWMT standings and tenth in Western Region.
In 2008, We started running Larry Shaw Race Cars chassis'. We then ran the full schedule at the Fairgrounds Speedway in Cortez, Colorado. I got my first out of state win there in September. We was able to win the track championship there that season by only 7 points. We also took third in the WWMT again and was fourth in the Western Region. We earned two wins that season. We ended up being one spot out of the transfer spot at the Duel in the Desert in Las Vegas that season.
In 2009, we struggled a little. We started off good by winning the Western Park Indoor Dwarf Car Special in Vernal in January but we picked up one win in the IMCA Modified late in the year. We ended up making all the features in the WWMT and took fifth in the standings. We took twelfth in the Western Region standings.
In 2010, we put together a new car we got in 2009 from Shaw. It was better as we won three times that year. (2 in Cortez and once in Vernal). We ended up winning the WWMT All-Star Race Qualifying Feature and finished eighth in the WWMT standings and sixth in the Western Region standings.
In 2011, we picked up one win and took third in the WWMT standings and eighth in the Iron Man Challenge Series. We also took eighth in the Western Region.
In 2012, I had one of the best seasons since I started racing. We had three wins and 28 top tens out of 37 races. We also made the trip to the IMCA Supernationals in Boone, Iowa. We won our heat race in our first try out there. I then won the WWMT All-Star Race in Delta, Utah by 0.040 seconds.
