Small description as to why you chose to race the Kenda National Enduro Series: The Kenda Series is the “Game Of Thrones” of racing. To become the best, you must race with the best. As Frank Sinatra sings, “If I can make it here, I can make it anywhere.”
Favorite moment on the national enduro series: Finally winning my first national, which was in Daytona at the Alligator National Enduro.
Goals for the season:
1. Winning my first national series
2. Winning my first regional series
3. Don’t break any bones
4. And the most challenging goal — don’t crash anymore
