Outlaw Factory Stock Class at Kaney Speedway. Career highlights
include finishing 2nd upside down and switching to Mods in '96.

the speed with all the other cars around. His most exciting racing
moment was winning 3 Day Show at Kaney Speedway and was paid $2,000 to
win. He's most proud that he is a clean driver. If he has to
put someone out to win, he'd just as soon not mess with it.

Of racing, John says, "It's a good
sport, you meet a lot of good people, lots of trust, nobody messes with
