Started racing when i was 12 with 250cc mini-sprints on dirt at local tracks in idaho where i was born and raised. Progressed to 600cc mini-sprints and traveled the northwest and california racing in big shows. My father and i both had great success at this level and a lot of fond memories. Progression led us to try our hand with full on 360 and 410 sprint cars at a track in washington called Skagit. Within my first and only year i racked up multiple top 5's, a feature win, and a prestigious 2nd place finish at 360 Nationals. I also earned the honors of "Budweiser 360 Series" rookie of the year. With that came my high school graduation and the opportunity to move to North Carolina and further my racing dream. In 2006 and 2007 i raced super late models all over the country before progressing into the USAR Hooters Pro Cup in 2007. I ran 3/4 of the Hooters schedule along with a handfull of ARCA races in 2007 before getting my opportunity to move into the exciting NCTS. I did the final 7 races in 2007 in a Craftsman Truck. In 2008 i ran the full season in trucks with another handfull of ARCA races in the mix. At the end of 2008 we made a change from Chevrolet's with crew chief Dave Fuge to Toyotas with crew chief Jeff Hensley and the change was huge. We ended the last 8 races of the season with a average finish of 8.6. To put that into perspective Johnny Benson (the 2008 champion) recorded an average finish of 9.1 for the year. I only wish we could have had the combination we did at the end of the year all throughout the year, who knows how things would have ended? All i know is that i am very excited for this combination and the 2009 season.
Congrats Brian on your neew ride with Braun Racing and be exciting watching you in next year.
