Gerald started racing in 1999 in the SupET Class at Mobile Dragway because he raced and built cars in the 1960's.  He lost his first race Red 0.006 in the '69 Chev Nova with a 350 chevy motor.  Career highlights include Track Championship in '09, NHRA Wally in '09, IHRA Iron Man in '10.

The thrill of racing for Gerald is that it keeps him young.  His most exciting racing moment was winning a NHRA Wally and an IHRA Iron Man.  He's most proud of building the car himself.

Gerald's racing hero is Dale Earnhardt.

Of racing, Gerald says, "It keeps me young!".
