So far this season, we are having a lot of fun and doing pretty well. At the WKA Man Cup season opener in Daytona, I ran into some bad luck when our engine blew up in Cadet. We had a mistake in Yamaha Jr. Sportsman, too, when my dad forgot the transponder in qualifying. This really upset my mom but we know that it will never happen again. I was having a decent run in HPV, but I was punted off the track. The weekend ended on a happy note, however, when I was blessed enough to get my first National podium ever. I placed 4th in the Cadet Final 2 so that made our team feel pretty good.

Team 64 was hoping to have a successful weekend in Illinois. The weather was great most of the time except for a quick shower on Friday. Friday was a hectic day as we practiced for all three classes. We were doing well and were pretty fast. However, even though we felt confident on Friday evening, we knew that there was a lot of tough competition out there.

When we arrived in Shawano, we were hoping our good luck would continue as we got ready to finish up the STARS East division. During the early session of Friday’s practice, the heavy rains soaked the track. The first two sessions we practiced in the wet. We were lucky that it quickly dried up so Jamie, Mike, and my dad could work on our set-up. Throughout practice we were never the quickest, however, we were very consistent.

Our team traveled to Dousman, Wisconsin for the Man. Cup Grand Nationals held June 13-15, 2008. Even though we weren’t able to bring home an Eagle, we still had the most consistent National event ever for us. The 64 team scored four top-ten finishes including two podiums! It was an awesome weekend.

Our team traveled to New Castle Motorsports Park for the Stars East vs. West race on May 30, 31 and June 1, 2008. Once again, with the help of God, we had a very successful weekend. We qualified on pole so we were off to a good start. The competition was fierce, however. Everyone there was within a fraction of a second of one another. In Heat 1, there was a wreck in the first turn which I was fortunate enough not to be involved in. After six laps of tough racing, we took the checkered flag in the first heat!
