Special thanks to my family and friends that helped make my dream come true.

Hero's in the sport: Gordie Bonin, Terry Capp, Gary Beck, and Jungle Jim Liberman.

Racing History: I first attended the drag races back in 1974 at Edmonton International Speedway. I first car I ever saw go down the track was the Pacemaker Vega funny car driven by Gordie Bonin. I started up and was noisy the did a half track burnout (I was hooked). In 1985 I traveled to Gainsville Florida to attend Frank Hawley's Drag Racing School (first Canadian). Over the last 20 years I have had the privilege to race with some of best race teams in the Edmonton area (Joey Steckler "RMNFCA", John Evanchuk "TA/FC", Sitko Family racing "TA/FC" and Cal Tebb "RMNFCA". Six years ago we finally build our own car and have raced it ever since enjoying a fair mount of success.

Best performance: 5.59 at 212 mph

Racing accomplishments: Two time IHRA Rocky Mountain Nationals winner "2012 and 2014". Winner of the coolest trophy ever at the 50th Anniversary race at Saskatchewan International Raceways. winner.
