Championships Won
2008 – Rode a race bike for basically the first time since ’06 at Daytona. I qualified 55th
and finished 27th out of 69 riders in the 67th running of the Daytona 200. I won 31
regional Races! I won every GTU and every Middle Weight Gran Prix race I entered at
the regional level. I was the first 600cc rider at Black Hawk Farms to go
into the 1:09s. I finished with the #4 number plate (CCS MW) with only racing select
Midwest rounds. I am also the Black Hawk Farms Track Champion in GTU, MWGP, and
ULGP. I got myself back up to speed in 2008 to become one of the fastest guys; the guy
to beat (again) at all CCS rounds after such a serious injury in ’06!
2009-Won numerous races at the regional level. Set the Official 600cc track record just
2 tenths shy of the unlimited record set by Robert Jensen on his 1000 at Blackhawk
Farms (1:08.831). Finished with a #4 plate in the Midwest region and a #5 Plate for the
Great Plains region.
2010-Won numerous races at the regional level. Took 2nd at the ASRA National at Road
America (sportbike). Finished in the money in AMA Pro Daytona Sportbike at Barber
Motorsports Park. Finished with a #4 CCS plate in the Midwest and Great Planes region.
