I started my racing career back in the 90’s when I was 12 years old up in Buffalo, NY. I had my share of Sears toy rc’s but my first hobby grade car was a Tamiya Grasshopper II. I loved that thing. I raced many different classes over the next 9 years but enjoyed offroad the most.
Due to work, school, and track closings, I quite racing in 2000.
Fast forward to 2010 and I’m now living in Florida. Things are going great and my current career as an engineer means I have weekends off.
I happen to come across a offroad track in Green Cove Springs, FL and decide to take the family down to check it out. We were lucky to show up during a nitro series event.
I was hooked again.
