Carolina Speedway but he can also be found racing at Cherokee Super
Speedway and Thunder Valley Speedway.
He started racing in 1991 in the Motocross
Beginner Class at Silver Creek and in the Late Model Dirt Class the end of
2002 at Thunder Valley Speedway because he enjoys any type of competition.

The thrill of racing for Furman is
figuring out how to make the car go faster, whether it be fixing him or
the car. His most exciting racing moment is any time he has to start
at the back....ends up being exhilarating and often expensive. He's
most proud of be able to count on the guys to come tot he track with
him to help out and not stir up trouble.
