My favorite activities are racing both with my sons, one of whom is a professional Go Kart Racer, Drag racing myself and spending time with my family and friends. I helped revive the Go Kart racing in Jamestown, ND and maintained and made the track weekly for the kids to have a space to start their racing careers. I farmed until a few years ago so was busy with working with local farmers to hay their land and get crops out of the ground. I enjoy rebuilding engines and repairing and restoring old cars as well as ride motorcycle when the weather and time allows.
