When 2016 began, I had no idea that I would get to travel the country following the sport I love. I was excited that I would finally have an excuse to go to Speed Weeks in Daytona (working for NEMCO and Bolen Motorsports in the truck series and RACE 101 in the K&N East Series), but there were no real concrete plans past that. Through spring, I would continue to follow the K&N East and Camping World Truck Series. In May, I was very surprised to get a call from Harold Hinson (HHP). He offered me a “trial” job for the Coca-Cola 600 weekend at Charlotte Motor Speedway. It went great! Harold then added Kentucky and the fall Charlotte race to my schedule.

Around that same time, I began working with NKP. Watkins Glen, Mid-Ohio, Bristol, Road America, Darlington, and Richmond in a row. It was tough for a newbie, but an amazing experience! I then finished the season with Talladega, Martinsville, and Homestead.

I’m extremely thankful. I never imagined that I would be covering some of the biggest races of the year with some of my biggest heroes… and making some awesome new friends along the way.
