Jeff started racing in 1977 in the

highlights include 8 Track Championships, Boone Super Nationals
qualifier three times.
The thrill of racing for Jeff is the
competition. His most exciting racing moment was making it into
the Super Nationals 3 times. He's most proud of 2 Track
Championships in one year.
Of racing, Jeff says, "We need more IMCA
tracks in Kansas and it's not all fun and games. It takes a lot of
time, money and work!".
