Future goals: To travel a little more, maybe attend some bigger races. To be that person who goes above and beyond to help others
Why did you choose Rotor Ron? Because I’ve always been a mom and pop supporter. I feel I’m getting that with Ron rather than these big name distributors. I like to support my track or local hobby shop also. Oh and I like going fast. Haha
Is there anything you want to add?: Ok here’s something about me that alot of people don’t know. I know alot of people want to ask but just don’t out of respect. 4 years ago I was in an ATV accident and I lost the use of my left shoulder, arm and hand because of nerve damage. I will never see it function again.  I started racing about a year after that and haven’t looked back since. Won my first trophy race in 2017 at Spirit in Girard, Pennsylvania a Toys for Tots race. This winter I placed 2nd at are N.Y. winter champs trophy race. Please see the the podium pic. We race weekly sometimes twice.
