Do you see yourself moving into a Sprintcar? Why or why not?
It is a goal of mine to run a Sprintcar in the near future, if I could find a drive. But at this stage my focus is with my midget program with BSL Racing.
Who were your racing heroes growing up and do you have racing heroes now?
Growing up I had many people which I followed and looked up too. The likes of Scott Dixon and Greg Murphy I followed very closely. Tony Stewart from NASCAR. But more recently the likes of Christopher Bell and Kyle Larson!
What do you enjoy doing away from the speedway track?
Travel, anything to do with motorsport, action sports, HIIT functional fitness.
What is a TV show you’re really into right now?
Being race season I don’t get to watch a lot of TV, but Shameless on Netflix is a good watch.

What is your most memorable moment in racing so far?
I have had a lot of memorable moments that stand out over the years. But getting to race at the Chili Bowl and run POWRi and USAC midget weeks against the world’s best would be up there with the best!
What’s a really cool non-racing experience you’ve gotten to do because you’re a speedway driver?
While traveling to America for racing, getting to see some of the amazing sights of the USA including the Grand Canyon, Las Vegas and LA while on tour was super cool!
Why do you run number 27?
The 1st TQ we bought from Bruce/Jamie Mcdonald was
#27, I liked the number and it has been with me ever
If you could give the younger version of yourself
one piece of advice, what would it be?
Be humble, work hard, never stop learning,
stay focused through the good and the bad!
Never give up! Have respect!
If you could do any race over again, which race
would you choose and why?
NZ champs at Western Springs a few years back. I
had it in the bag, fought off Michael Pickens but
was eventually taken out with only a handful of laps
remaining. A couple of different choices in the car could have landed me the 1NZ.
A famous chef wants you to invest in the new restaurant he’s opening, but he wants you to pick the cuisine. What type of food would your restaurant serve?
Mexican and Margaritas for sure!
