The thrill of racing for Ken is when the shop work, driver skill and luck all come together.  His most exciting racing moment was his first ride in a 100 mph road race kart, VIR, in '69.  He's most proud of approaching his 40th year as a racer and having the respect of his fellow racers.

Ken's racing heroes are all weekend racers who race for the love of the sport.

Of racing, Ken says, "To see the best racing, see motorcycles or cars on dirt!  Everything else is second best!  When the green flag drops, the "BS" stops!".
