37. Helped a couple buddies with their bracket cars and heads up cars since around 2001. Actually made my first pass last month in my 67 Camaro street car. Not fast by today's standards (8.65 in 1/8th) but I loved it.

I'm 52 and started racing in 1988 at the age of 20 when I took my four wheel drive V-6 powered Ford Ranger down the track to a blistering 18.3 @ 72 mph. I then moved into a V-8 Pinto that went a best of 15.0 @ 93 mph (too many wiring problems and at the time I had limited wiring skills to figure it all out). Now I'm in my '79 Mustang Cobra that run's mid to high 11's @ 116-121.

37 and really started racing 4 years ago.
But have been working on race cars since I was 2 or 3 (literally). Have pics of me in diapers with grease on me and couple wrenches with dad's 70 Maverick (race car) on stands in the background. Fortunate enough to know alot of smart people in the industry, based on family ties. Hopefully, I can do my part.
