Home Town:  Casino
How Did You Get Into Racing: My dad used to race, Mum used to drag all us kids along and sit in the grandstand, she still sits in the same place and has the first program ever printed at Lismore. Dad raced with  Shaun Mortimer my cousin, I was still at school and dad said I had better start racing, Mum was furious.
Division Raced: I changed from racing stockers to AMCA’s about 10 years ago. We bought a really cheap car to start with, then Danny Smith built us a Rocket Chassis. The cost is under $10,000 and is good budget racing and the AMCA group are a great bunch.
Best Win: Would have to be the NSW Title in Lismore last year
Toughest Competitor: Nick Stubbs, Steve Potts and Shane Mckinnell all good to race against.
Favourite Track:  Lismore of cause
Who Do You Want To Thank: Ann my partner, Mum and Dad, Danny Smith, Col Randall, all the guys who give a hand in the pits, and of cause David Lander for providing the track to race on.
