Bill started racing in 1977 in the Stock Class at Indianapolis Speedrome because he'd always liked it.  His Dad built cars when Bill was younger.  His first win was that same year.  Career highlights include top 10 in Points for 20 years, 2003 World Figure 8 Champion, most laps completed in World Figure 8 career, most laps completed at Indianapolis Speedrome career, 1 Hour Late Model Figure 8 winner 3 times, won the Bobby Long Sportsmanship Award twice, finished 2nd in World Figure 8 in '06 and has led most laps in the World Figure 8.

Bill's racing heroes are everybody that has to work hard to race while on a tight budget to be there every week and their families.

Of racing, Bill says, "It works best as a family sport!".
