Recently Mentioned in:
I started racing electric in 1991 on the club level. In 1993 I started taking racing more serious and travelling to some regional and National level event for 1/10th electric. I got sponsored by Team Losi Racing in 1994 and have been running there product ever since. My first major win was at the 1999 Reedy Truck race of Champion in the electric factory modified truck class. I moved from Michigan to California and began working for TLR in 2000. The move to CA. was a huge change for me, this is also when I got serious about nitro racing and started helping with the development of TLR’s nitro program. I’m currently living in Fontana, CA with my wife Ronda and our two dogs.
