The thrill of racing for Ben is driving
fast. His most exciting racing moment was dodging the big wrecks
at LMS without damage! He's most proud of doing really well with
Ben's racing hero is his Grandpa Buck, a
Winston Cup Series driver from California's old racing days....he beat
big names at Riverside with used equipment so Ben feels he's picking up
where his Grandpa left off.
Of racing, Ben says, "Race hard but race
fair! Taking others out on purpose is really low class!
Speed in my Spirit, Spirit in my speed, race hard, pray hard, repeat!".
