Class car. His home track is I-77 Speedway and also races at
Team members helping Chris are Becky

Chris started racing in '09 in a
Renegade Class at both I-77 and Cherokee because he's been going to the
track since he was 3 years old and dreaming of driving. He had his first
win in '11 at Cherokee in a Renegade. Career highlights include:
2011 First win, Flipped in 2010 (started in Aug 2009 and flipped in July
2010) '11 was first full year and a good year.
The thrill of racing for Chris is the
motor vibrating, the speed, and the smell of the fuel. His most
exciting racing moment was when I won by half a track and finished 3rd
in points. He is most proud of his parents: their hard work,
giving me a chance to race, even though the hard times; flipping and
losing everything and starting over.
Chris's racing heroes are Kyle Busch and
Of racing, Chris says, "Don't start
racing because once it's in your system you can't stop."
