How did you get your car number? My great uncle Scott Will raced the #70 back in the 80s, and I wanted to continue our family tradition in racing.

When/how did you get into racing? In 2021, with the help of family, I was able to start racing on my own. My family has been racing locally for a long time, from Ronnie & Scott Will in the 80s to Dave & Brian Lashua more recently. I had always been around the different tracks in Wisconsin, and knew it was something that I could really get into myself.

Favorite racing memory so far: The second half of this 2022 season has been my favorite. We had some bumps that put us out for seven weeks, but our comeback has been awesome. Being in Victory Lane at 3 tracks this year has definitely been cool.

What do you enjoy most about State Park Speedway: State Park is my home track, and even before I started racing we came every week. I like the fans and the support of the other drivers from all the divisions at home. Being in the pits and talking to the other drivers about their cars.

Racing goals: Really just want to keep getting better every time I go out, to travel more and get to more tracks. I have three more years in Bandoleros, but maybe move into Legends after that.

Favorite activities besides racing: I play football in the fall; fishing
Favorite food: Chicken wings & pizza
Favorite place to eat: Hog Creek on Wing Nite
