In 2009 I competed in the 2009 Chili Bowl Nationals in Tulsa Oklahoma
with some of the best drivers in the nation such as Kasey Kahne, Tony
Stewart's Team, Gary Scelzi, Corey Kruseman, and many more world renown
drivers. It was my first experience racing on dirt. It was a great racing
experience; I learned a lot and set fast lap times. I also raced in
a dirt USAC Midget with occasional testing for team owner Chris Walker.
At the end of the season I was in contact with NASCAR Camping World
West teams and had the opportunity to drive a NASCAR Late Model # 14
for team owner Tony DeAllesandro.
