Hometown: Big Prairie, OH
Years in Racing: 18
- What is the biggest mistake a tire changer can make on a pit stop? How do you practice to not make that mistake?
“The biggest mistake that a tire changer can make is hanging or knocking off lug nuts. To prevent this we practice over and over again to develop a good rhythm and also muscle memory.”
- What is your earliest racing memory?
“Building Dirt Modifieds with my father and brother.”
- Close Call Story?
“Too close! During the race at Homestead in 2008 I was hit by Kevin Harvick’s car while he was leaving his pit stall. I ended up with a tore up ankle and a moderately injured back.”
