Brian started racing in 2004 in the Pure
Stock Class at Western Kentucky Speedway because as a little boy he
watched his Father race and work on cars. Brian was always
attracted to the sport. His first win was in 2005 in the Pure
Stock Class at Western Kentucky Speedway. Career highlights
include several Heat wins, 4 Feature wins, Track Championship in '05 and
5th in the Points in '04.
The thrill of racing for Brian is the
adrenaline rush and the attention everyone gives to their sport.
His most exciting racing moment was his first win where he ran 2nd to a
guy the whole race. Then on the white flag lap he got really
messed up and Brian went on to win. He's most proud of winning the
Championship in '05. It takes a lot to pull something like that
off, which he and his crew worked very hard to get.
Brian's racing heroes are Jeff Gordon
and his Father.
Of racing, Brian says, "Racing is a good
family sport, also it is fairly cheap entertainment. There's
nothing like going to your local track on Saturday night and watching
all of the talent a lot of drivers have!".
