I'm a 14 year old race car driver from Norwalk, IA. I started going to the Sprint Car races at Knoxville Speedway in 2015 and fell in love with racing. In 2016, we got season tickets so I could go to every race. In May of 2016, my Dad asked if I wanted to race someday and... working with McKenna Haase and Compass Racing Development, I was racing in July of 2016. I started mid year in the Restricted Box Stock at English Creek Speedway. I was able to get a podium finish at both the English Creek and Jackson, MN Nationals. In 2017, I moved up to the Box Stock class and was able to win a heat race, be most Improved Driver of the Year, 6th at Nationals and was able to race in Wisconsin and North Carolina. 2018 will be an exciting year as I will be able to race my final year in the Box Stock class and also start in the 250 Outlaw class.
