13 with NASA in a Mazda Spec Miata at Rockingham and Roebling Road in
Savannah, GA. At the age of 14 Ess moved into the Allison Legacy Series.
He started racing because his Dad took him to the races from the time he
was born. Ess also took a ride in a 3rd Generation Twin Turbo RX7 at 140
MPH at Charlotte Motor Speedway while he was still in the womb.
The thrill of racing for Ess is going
fast. His most exciting moments are going fast beside someone into turn
one. He is most proud of beating his Dad's lap time at Rockingham Speedway
in a Spec Miata on the road course at a NASA event.
Ess's racing hero is Ben Hinson.
Of racing, Ess says, "It's a thrill!"
