Who is your favorite driver?|
Recently my favorite driver has been Jeff Gordon. I was a big Earnhardt Sr. fan before his untimely death. It was hard to pick out another driver to root for, but I had been following Jeff since his first days in Cup racing and was impressed with his driving.
When did you start Sim racing?
I started with Nascar 1, whenever that was...... a long time ago. At first I raced using the keyboard and advanced to a Mad Catz wheel and pedal! I've got every edition of the game plus Grand Prix Legends and Sports Car GT

Most memorable moment in Sim racing?
A few years back, the 30 Plus Racing team helped another group of drivers put their league together. Mule sent a few of us over to race with them and to show them how it was done. Daytona was the track and Thumbs and I showed the way to the end with me taking the checkered against a very tough field of drivers. It was a very rewarding victory for myself and the team

Bill Wilson and Dr. Bob...... the founders of A.A. They have been instrumental in helping hundreds of thousands of people deal with Alcoholism.

What do you enjoy most about racing here at 30plus?
Years ago I ran the Papy loop circuit and raced where ever I could get in at. I found Mule and the boys in October of 2001 and have raced with them ever since. 30 Plus Racing involves itself in charitable causes through it's racing and I'm proud to be an active part of that. Everybody here is your friend, and there is nothing we won't do for each other. I am fortunate and grateful to be a member of the 30 Plus Racing Team!
