Who/what is your guilty pleasure?
Honestly can not think of one, I do spend ALOT of time on iRacing so I am rolling with that…hours upon hours on iRacing. [Laughs]
Who is your favorite sports team and why?
Hendrick Motorsports. They are a great example of how a team should work together. They are on point consistently.
What was your favorite subject/class in school?
History….I know weird right? Probably the only 17 year old that likes history. I think it derives from Dad taking me metal detecting and researching History and Historic places, Civil war etc.
If you were given three wishes, what would one of them be?
To be a COMPETITIVE NASCAR Cup Driver and Team Owner someday.
Do you play video games?If so name your favorite game.
iRacing mostly but I do play some older Playstation games like the old ATV vs. MX game or NBA 2013. Do not get into the new generation shoot um up games, I’m kinda old school.
If you could try any job out for one day what would you like to try?
Well I have worked with dad for countless hours in NASCAR shops helping do body and paint work, also worked this past summer with him to help get myself race car parts. So I know I do not want to work as hard as he does! Outside my racing career path I am focusing on Mechanical Engineering and Drafting. I would also like to be a pilot! I’m not sure where that came from but it just popped into my head and sounded fun and fast!
What is the first thing you would do if you won the lottery?
Considering these frigid temperatures right now the first thing that popped into my head was buy a boat and go on a vacation to Florida! Honestly I like helping kids less fortunate and fishing is a huge hobby of mine. So I think I would continue to help take kids fishing as I do now but on a much larger scale.
Worst date ever?
I do not go on many dates. Dinner here or there with a few friends that are Girls. So honestly I have not had a worst date ever. I am to focused on my career and where I am headed to let anything negative distract me.
Spider’s!! I turn into an absolute girl when I see a spider! I would wreck a race car any day over getting close to them ugly creatures!
Who is your ultimate celebrity crush?
Salena Gomez… she’s cute………wait there goes that distraction I was just talking about. No, no celebrity crushes [Laughes]
**Will be competing at Langley Speedway for complete 2014 season**
“My Mom, Dad and little Sister, They have done everything possible to support me and guide me. I have never had a sponsor. I do not like asking for money but I guess we need to start! At this point in my career, my Family can not support me, so…. anyone interested?”
