I have been a life long motorsports fan. My father took me to the Indianapolis 500 in 1991, and my life was forever changed. I began Karting in the late 1990’s, and continued on through 2014. I was the Polesitter for the Indy Karting Classic in 2011 beating the likes of Joseph Newgarden, AJ Almendinger, Alex Tagliani
and many other real world drivers in that event.
As for Sim racing, it all began on a snowy weekend in 1995. Papyrus Nascar 95 was released and my stepfather just happened to work for IBM, so we had the good stuff that would run that program back then!! Next came another Papyrus release, IndyCar Racing 2!! HOOKED! Then ofcourse came Grand Prix Legends…. Mind blown at that point!! Fast forward to 2008 and iRacing here i come! Been active there ever since, Winning multiple championships in Grand Am.
