An Interesting Car-Related Fact About You: I come from a family of racecar drivers. My grandfather raced up Pikes Peak in the 60's and 70's in a VW Formula Vee and was one of the first people to put a turbo on an aircooled VW engine. I have a lot of cool photos and in car videos of his glory days. My great uncle was one of the Northwest's pioneers for sprint car racing and was eventually a getaway driver for a failed bank robbery. At age 6 I started racing 1/4 midgets on both dirt and asphalt, and continued until age 12 when I started racing 1/2 sized NASCAR. I stopped racing competitively at age 16 due to unfortunate circumstances, but have continued on with track events and have plans to race Pikes Peak in 2019!
