Tell us about your new team?
I have joined forces with Youtheory Racing. I was looking to wrench and join a team since we shut down our doors over at Letner Racing. Not only did they agree to hire me but they offered me a full-time gig racing my car under the Youtheory banner through the end of this season and into next year. It’s going to be awesome with three trucks and one buggy – myself in #1570 Class 1 car, Jerry Whelchel in the #37 Trophy Truck, Jeff Terzo and Anthony Terzo in the #55 Trophy Truck and Andrew Whitehead in the #6183 truck.
How did this whole thing come together?
Basically, I think they might have been talking about it a little bit because we’ve known the each others families for a really long time. I think they knew we were going down hill financially on the racing end of it and when I met with Patty and Darren about getting a job, they said bring my car down. They’re going to wrap it in their colors and add a fourth car to the team and go racing. It’s pretty awesome, I’m not going to lie.
