HOW DID YOU GET INVOLVED WITH AUTOMOBILES/MOTORSPORTS:

WHAT DO YOU LOVE ABOUT AUTOMOBILES/MOTORSPORTS:  

The smell of a burning drag slick, the smell of burning race fuel, the look of a classic muscle car with huge tires and big engines, memories made building Hot Rods and racing them with family and friends, my wife (Angela Lair) telling me she is proud of me and my accomplishments when I build a cool Hot Rod! Seeing my wife get excited because race weekend is coming up!

ANYTHING ELSE YOU WOULD LIKE TO SHARE WITH THE DRAGTRUCKS COMMUNITY:

Never Give up on your dreams!  I almost gave up on this build several times during the four years
I spent building it. Now I thank God and my wife every day for not letting me!
