Lucas Oil Sportsman Drag Racing Series – Super Comp Class

How did you get involved in your sport? How long have you been participating?

Other Hobbies / Fun Facts

I love drag racing so much, my wife and I with another couple, have been promoting the 890 Race Series here on the west coast. With fewer places to race in our area, we are working toward giving Super Comp racers a place to come have fun for the weekend without driving a long distance.

I was inducted into Hilmar High School Hall of Fame in 2012 for my accomplishments in sports. I also have a track record, that will never be broken, for the 200-yard dash.

I was a walk-on try out for the San Francisco 49ers football team in 1972 where Gene Washington got the job instead of me…
