Started Racing Late Models In - 2015

Why Number #41? - We always ran #71 but that was taken when I got to Late Models. My Dad (Darren) had won four WA Production Sedan State championships, meaning 4 x #1: Hence 41!

Favourite Track - Eldora Speedway

Career Highlight - Winning the Australian Title in the 19/20 season. Also 2 x WA Champion, 2 X Late Model Nationals.

Most Admired Competitor - When I was a kid I looked up to Brad Blake, now it's also Jamie Oldfield.
