I feel as though I lead several different lives, husband, father, teacher, and motocross racer. There was a time when all I lived for was motocross. Everything I did was to support efforts to be the best possible racer I could be. I worked so I could race but that left little time for practicing. I often wonder what could have been if I was able to devote 100 % of my time to becoming a motocross racer. Anyhow that was never a reality for me. I went to college to pursue a teaching degree in industrial arts, my other passion. I currently teach a full schedule of machine shop, woodworking, drafting, and welding at Canon City High School. I have been teaching for the last 8 years and along the way I have completed two Masters Degrees.
During all of my education, jobs, and family, I have still raced a full local schedule for the past 10 years. I started racing motocross and supercross about 18 years ago when I was at the age of 14. Mainly I compete in the SRAC (Sport Riders Association of Colorado) and RMXA (Rocky Mountain Motocross Association). I did become an AMA licensed professional in 2005 and I have raced a handful of National events.
2008 Racing Goals
- At the last race of the 2006 race season I broke my left wrist bones in a crash. I pretty much had to sit out all of the 2007 race season while I underwent two surgeries. My number 1 goal for 2008 is to regain my Vet Pro Championship in motocross and supercross that I won in 2006.
- I also will compete to finish top Five in the SRAC 250 Pro motocross series.
- In supercross I will also compete for a top five finish in the SRAC 250 pro and Open pro classes.
- Race and qualify for the 2008 Lakewood round and Millville rounds of the Outdoor National series.
- Improve my training regimen.
Perhaps one of my biggest accomplishments is finishing top ten a total of 21 times in the SRAC Pro classes since 1999. I am also extremely proud of winning the SRAC Vet Pro motocross and Supercross series in 2006. At the last race of the 2006 race season I broke my wrist in the first Vet pro moto. I had a point’s lead but not enough to sit out. I had to race and finish in the top ten in the 2nd Moto in order to be the champion. I was able to gut it out and win the series. 2006 was definitely a memorable year.
