Favorite Track: Hallett. It's not my home track, but I think it's the best track on the calendar.

How did you get into motorcycles? I grew up in a military family... and moved around a lot. After one of the moves, my mom tasked my dad with buying new furniture for the living room. With a couple hundred bucks in hand, my dad set out to buy the PERFECT living room set, but instead came home with a Suzuki RM125. I didn't grow up on a motorcycle per se, but it has always been in my blood in some form... and I think the above story is where my passion for 2 wheels kicked off.

Why do you ride? The sense of Freedom when I'm on the bike is unlike anything else in life...

Career Highlight: Earning my first real podium in 2020. I took 3rd place in the 300ss race in Houston after passing my Bison teammate, Bubba Hanson, on the last corner of the last lap.

Favorite Bike to Ride: My Grom.

How do you prepare to go on the track? Breathe. Sounds silly, but before EVERY race, I have to remind myself to breathe. I'm so nervous and excited, that I often find myself short of breath. I also take a second to write myself a note. Before every race weekend, I put a piece of tape on my tank and write, "You're Someone's Dad", to remind myself that this is all for fun... and that I've gotta bring it home in one piece come Monday.

Goals for 2021: Top 2 overall 300 Superbike

Why do you choose Bison Track? I choose Bison because of the passion, support, and love that Rob and Tosha show the sport and their riders. They really have created a family of riders with the goal of being both fast and safe.
