Favorite Track: Barber Motorsports Park
How did you get into motorcycles? I had always want to ride street bikes even back when I was around 5 years old and when I was 14, my dad took me to my first track day on a Yamaha WR250X and I loved it!
Why do you ride? I ride because I love the feel of leaning so far over and going so fast, also the friends we have made at the track make it so much fun.
Career Highlight: It would have to be at Blackhawk Farms Raceway, I was racing my Kawsaki Ninja 400 and was running faster times than the expert SV650’s ahead of me.
Favorite Bike to Ride: Kawasaki Ninja 400
How do you prepare to go on the track? I prepare by going for a short run to get my blood flowing and say a prayer.
Goals for 2021: I’d like to attend more MotoAmerica races, keep improving my times, and get top expert for CCS Midwest.
Why do you choose Bison Track? Well we found Bison at a CCS race and I had instantly liked the look of their suits, and everywhere we went I would always see Bison suits. So, we talked to Rob and Tosha about Bison and I was amazed! Bison provides the best trackside rider support, quality bespoke suits and gloves, and they make your safety a priority.
