Snapshot: I’m pretty easy going and have the sense of humor of a 14-year-old. An average series of radio transmissions before a race usually includes a full dialog of a scene from Super Troopers. I am also a diehard Packer fan. Gosh I love the Packers. 

Racing goal:  My main two racing goals are to win the Indianapolis 500 and be a champion of the IndyCar series.

Racing hero: James Hunt

My fitness routine includes:  I run three times a week. I also include some weight training and CrossFit training.

Pre-race rituals or superstitions:  I try to get as calm as possible sitting in the car before a race

The one talent I wish I had:  I wish I had Jedi powers

An interesting note about me: I grew up on a fishing resort in northern Wisconsin and my first job at eight years old (I still do this while I’m home) was cleaning fish for resort guests. I can filet a bluegill in 25 seconds.
