Future Racing Goals & Involvement In The Sport?: My goal is to win back-to-back championships at New England Dragway. I would like to continue running in the junior dragster program as long as I can.  Once I am out of the junior dragster program, I would like to drive a door car in the Pro class at New England Dragway. My goal is to continue in the sport of drag racing for many years to see where it leads me.  I also would like to continue helping my father with his race cars as he's been racing for over 20 years. Racing is definitely in my blood! I enjoy the hands-on learning of working with race cars, building engines, transmissions, and clutches with my father.  I spend a lot of time in the shop with my father working on all of our race cars.

School & Community Involvement: I am involved in my technical high school's Collision Technology program, a member of Mount Carmel Church, and help out at my family's automotive repair shop.
