About

Writing History: I started writing about NASCAR in 2009 for a website called Playerpress. After a few months there, I went over to Fansided in May '09 where I was the Lead Blogger for their NASCAR site, Stock Car Spin. During my time with Fansided, I was linked on FoxSports.com several times and wrote Fox Sports' NASCAR "Hot or Not" column for the 2010 NASCAR season. In June 2011, I parted ways with Fansided in an effort to focus on my education. But when the opportunity came up with B/R, I simply could not pass it up. I came on with Bleacher Report in February 2012 and in April 2012 officially became a Featured Columnist for B/Rs NASCAR page.

NASCAR Fan History: I began watching NASCAR in 2001. I pulled for my fellow Georgia boy Bill Elliott from the time I began watching until he quit racing full-time after the 2003 season. I then became a Kasey Kahne fan after he took over for Elliott in 2004, and cheered for him for several years. In recent years, I've had a hodge-podge of drivers I have pulled for, though I probably screamed loudest when Trevor Bayne won the Daytona 500 than when any other driver did...well...anything. Today, I try to stay impartial as a writer and watch races with an open-mind, although we all know writers have drivers they secretly root for. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise.

    Richard Petty's wins record is unbeatable because he is the only driver that they count wins at small local tracks... petty was not as good as he was made out to be and the competition was much smaller than it was for earnhardt or in todays race
