Mike started racing in 1984 in the Enduro Class at Kankakee Motor Speedway because he was able to fix things.  He thought he could drive and wanted to prove it and is still trying.  His first win was in 1996 in the Street Stock Class at Kankakee Motor Speedway.  Career highlights include Fayette County Bomber Track Record, 1999 Avery Henry Memorial at Boswell pole sitter, and loading car in one piece anytime is a good night.

The thrill of racing for Mike is the rare occasion to make the "perfect move".  His most exciting racing moment was 3 straight weeks of clean sweeps in 1999 at Kamp.  He's most proud of adapting enough to be competitive at a wide variety of tracks.

Mike's racing hero is his Dad.

Of racing, Mike says, "It's the most fun you can have with your clothes on!  It's better to regret something you've done than to regret something you haven't done!".
