How did I choose my number?
We bought a former quarter midget from (current Indy Car competitor) Ed Carpenter and I decided to make 7 my number for good.
Who has had the biggest impact on your career and why?
My father got me into racing and will always be my driving force even though he is no longer with me. Also, Greg Charron had always helped me with anything and everything on the racecar. Nate Charron is my crew chief and if it wasn't for him, I wouldn't be where I am today.
What has been the biggest win/accomplishment of your career?
My points championship in 2009 at Lincoln Speedway and my win on opening night there in 2009 less than a week after my father passed away. There may never be a more emotional win than that one was in my career.
What is your favorite thing about racing?
The best part of racing for me is the competition. There is no better feeling than working hard and coming out on top. There is also nothing comparable to strapping into a sprint car and putting your foot to the floor.
