Bio: I started with cars at a young age playing with Matchbox and the original Hot Wheels cars. Early in my teens I worked on family cars with my brother David. A 1962 Hillman minx and a 1969 Chevy Bellair were to subjects of our efforts. Once David got his license he started buying cars and I help work on them ( 56 Ford wagon, early VW bus, 66 Chevy Malibu with a 283, 65 Chevy Belair were a few of the numerous cars. Once I started to drive I learned to drive fast you needed a good car and had to know how to work on them. I rebuilt my first engine at 18 using the Capri V6 as my base. Competition was always a desire of mine so I started auto-crossing once I reached 18 and could sign my life away on the liability sheets necessary to compete. Later in life I started to work at NASA events and attended all the Driving schools I could to finally get my competition license and my Friend Charles and I bought and built a Pro7/Pro-sedan race car out of two RX-7s. We raced for about 3 years until the time required got to be too much for that time in our life. I have always loved car and racing so being part of this LeMons team will be a great experience and hopefully lots of fun.
