I joined Hendrick Motorsports as a developmental pit crew member in September. Formerly an offensive lineman from the University of Nevada at Las Vegas, I didn’t have a racing background, but knew I wanted to continue my athletic career in a team sport.
Growing up in Nyack, N.Y., I dreamed about working for a race team. I got my first break managing and building engines for a kart racing team before making the move to Hendrick Motorsports where I’ve spent the last 12 years as a machinist in the engine shop. I’ve always loved the competition of racing, and one of the highlights of working with this organization is the opportunity to compete with my peers both at Hendrick Motorsports and within the Hendrick Automotive Group in the annual Randy Dorton Engine Builder Showdown.
Of all the things I’ve had the opportunity to do with Hendrick Motorsports, I’d have to say that participating in Pit Crews for Kids has been one of the most rewarding.
