crazy....you tell him! His first win was in 2002 in the Super
Stock V8 Class at Antioch Speedway. Career highlights include 2003

Championship in Stock 8 at Antioch Speedway, 28 Feature wins (25 wins in

The thrill of racing for Joey is that he
lives for danger! His most exciting racing moment was the $1200
Limited Sportsman win at Antioch Speedway from starting in the rear
against the likes of Robert Bradley. He's most proud of 2 Points
Championships, many wins and being competitive at other tracks.
