How did you get started racing?

My dad got me a kid’s snowmobile when I was three and racing followed naturally at age 4. I raced motocross and Snocross growing up and continued on the Snocross career path, eventually competing at the top level for several years. I retired my professional Snocross career in March of 2017 to focus on off-road racing full time.

I got into off-road racing through UTVs. At first, I just enjoyed driving them in my free time and shortly after I started racing them. I attended an off-road race in Bark River, MI in 2011 and thought it was the coolest thing I had ever seen. I continued racing UTVs and as I progressed I found my way into renting a Pro Lite truck. The rest is history.

What’s your favorite racing moment with Carlson Motorsports?

My first PRO-4 win in front of a hometown crowd in 2019 at ERX.

What are the 3 things you can’t go to the track without?

  1. Red Bull helmet
  2. My family
  3. Belief in myself that I can win!

Favorite race weekend meal?

Big pasta guy! Any kind of pasta.

What do you do in your free time?

Hunting, fishing, driver RZRs, hanging out with family and friends, building jumps!

What sets short course off-road racing apart from other forms of racing?

There is always action on the track, tons of horsepower and the atmosphere is always great.
