The thrill of racing for Butch is the
adrenaline high through the cross over. His most exciting racing
moment was winning the Triple 50's at Louisville Motor Speedway, being
Fast Qualifier that night and outdueling the favorite to win! He's
most proud of having the other racers/competitors know that I will race
them clean and earned respect through the years.
Butch's racing hero is his Dad.
Of racing, Butch says, "Close family
atmosphere. You have to keep the fun in racing to enjoy it!".
