All of my personal history is in my competitive highlights.
In 2015 my goals, and expectations are very high. I plan on finishing top 3 in district 17 mx points for either 250c or open c. I am meeting with a trainer at sunset ridge mx so I can try to qualify for Lorettas. I do not fully expect to qualify for the ranch this year but next year I will be attending a full week camp MTF and then racing the Daytona Amatuar SX. This year I plan on racking up some good results and finishing up top!

I have been a District 17 member for 9 years now; District 17 is the largest race district in the country. I am also a member of the Galesburg Motorcycle Club that I practice at daily. I practice regularly with amateur champions and national pros which really helps me to improve my skills. I plan on attending every race next season including 1 National week for motocross racing in Daytona Beach Florida in the 250c class. I also would like to try to qualify for loretta’s since I am now meeting with a trainer at least once every week at sunset ridge mx.
My goals are to place good at Daytona bike week on the supercross track and to also qualify for Loretta Lynns.

I went undefeated (24 races) up till nationals in the 85cc class .When an accident on day 3 caused several injuries ending my season half way through. Up till that point at nationals I was 4 points out of first and winning the race at the time I went down. I still finished 8th over all without competing on the last day. My dist.17 point’s lead was large enough to still let me take 3rd for the year. I also was AMA Regional number 1 as well as Short track state champion.

2014 Season Summary
This year I started out winning my first four flat track races of the season. I decided to make the change to motocross due to the dying out of the flat track sport and because of the fun I had been having racing motocross. So far I have been in the top 5 consistently in the Open C class including 4 moto wins. I am starting to meet with a coach at sunset ridge mx so I can try to qualify for Loretta Lynn’s next year in the 250c and 250c limited class. I have started my training program for the upcoming season and plan to come out strong.
