Most memorial moment in racing:
I have had a lot of great moments over all my years of racing like, Winning the Irwindale Twin 25 Quarter Midget race two years in a row, going undefeated and winning the 2003 So Cal Kart Championship, and also winning the Memorial Day Weekend Double. But setting a Quarter Midget World Record driving for the Nine Racing Team (Steve Lewis) was the biggest moment of my life.
