What are your favorite hobbies in the off-season?

I have a Harley Davidson that I barely ride, I have a four wheeler that I barely ride, I have a snowmobile that I have 150 miles on this year, I’ve got a snowboard that I don’t use, but I do have two racecars that seem to get a lot of attention.  That pretty much covers my hobbies! 

What do you do for work?

I am a network administrator at Vermont State Employees Credit Union.

What is your biggest life accomplishment?

I guess it’s probably having my name on all the granite monuments at Thunder Road. I used to go there as a kid and I remember watching the Coors Tour and Busch North, and never in a million years thought I would ever even race there.  The accomplishments that we’ve been able to achieve there are pretty cool, and the list of names we’re next to is even cooler.

I am a mechanic for Martin Auto in Craftsbury Common, VT.

I’d say probably marrying my wife and having my two kids.  They are a huge part of my life, and family is not only important to me, but a big accomplishment I think.  It’s not easy!
