Ken started racing in 2000 in the Go
Karts Stock Light Class at Peach State and Shiloh Speedway because one
of his Dad's friends started racing Go Karts and got them interested.
So they bought two and raced them. They wanted to move up in
another series. His first win in the Pro Challenge series was in
2003 at Senoia Speedway. Career highlights include two wins in Pro
Challenge, finishing 2nd in the Points at Senoia Speedway in 2004,
finishing 6th at Lonesome Pines Speedway in Hooters Pro Cup Series.
The thrill of racing for Ken is being on
the edge and getting away with it and the competition. His most
exciting racing moment was winning Aarons's 499, finishing 2nd in 49
laps. Then they inverted the field and had a 9 lap shootout.
Winning that race was pretty cool! He's most proud of qualifying
4th at Bristol in a Hooters Pro Cup car.
Ken's racing hero is Dale Earnhardt.
Of racing, Ken says, "Not as easy as it
