Forrest started racing in 1985 in the Thunder Car Class at Fairgrounds because his Dad took him as a kid.  Forrest fell in love with it and he loves the challenge and the speed.  His first win was that same year.  Career highlights include Rookie of the Year in 1985, '85 High Point Champion, 2001 High Point Champion at East Bay Raceway Park, Top 5 in Points from 2002 through 2006.

The thrill of racing for Forrest is speed, competition, and adrenaline rush!  His most exciting racing moment was winning the Turkey Shootout.  Forrest's son thought he won a million dollars but it was really $1000.  He's most proud of the interaction between racing and his sons, Steven and Shawn.

Forrest's racing hero is Buzzie Retuiman.

Of racing, Forrest says, "You have to earn what you get.  They aren't going to give it to you, so instead you have to go and take it!".
