When did you first start riding and when did you get into racing?
I first started racing when I was about 9 and then I kind of just did it for fun for about a year or two then I did some races and it kind of just took off from there.


Who was the first person to introduce you to riding? 
The first person to introduce me to riding was my dad’s friend.  I actually rode his bike once at this track called Baraona Oaks and it was just for fun so a few weeks later I got a bike.


What was your first bike?
CRF 50

When did you decide that this was something you wanted to take more serious and start racing on a national level? 
I probably decided I wanted to take this more seriously when I was probably about 12 because I was also playing baseball too so I was doing both sports and was actually way more serious in the baseball then I started riding more so motocross kind of took over and I couldn’t really place baseball anymore because between school and everything it was so much so I choose moto.


What are your goals or ambitions in this sport?
My goals for this sport is to put all the hard work and dedication it something big so I mean getting on the podium and winning races is always my main goal.


Where do you see yourself in the next 5 years? 
I see myself in the next five years being a top guy.  Because it just takes dedication and hard work and you could put that into something big.

est influence in your life and racing career?  My parents are the biggest influence in my life and my racing career.  They push me to train hard and they support me in every way they can.


How has it been being a part of the Rides Unlimited/BTO Sports Racing Team? 
Being part of the Rides Unlmited BTO race team have been super good.  I mean everyone on the team is awesome the structure of the program they got going and just everything about it has been super sweet with the semi just this last year everything has come a long way from what it was when it started so pretty pumped on that and everyone else on the team so great.


What’s it like having a full semi truck to yourselves?
Having a semi to myself and my teammates is so cool I mean any kid would dream of that and we got it so it’s a pretty cool deal.
