Hi, I'm EJ!

I am 17 years old, a Senior at Waterford High School in Waterford WI. I began my racing career racing Go Karts at Badger Kart Club in Dousman WI. I raced there for 3 years. In those three years I learned a lot and did well. In 2013 in the Yamaha Sportsman Division, I took 4th in the point series, Rookie of the Year and Most Improved Driver of the Year. In 2014 in the Yamaha Junior Division, I took 2nd in the point series and 6th in the Junior Summer Series. In 2015 I started racing a Chevy Cobalt at Slinger Speedway in the Slinger Bee Division. I placed 8th in the points series and took Rookie of the Year. I was 13 years old, one of the youngest drivers on the track.

Last year I raced my Limited Late Model at Slinger Speedway, finishing 7th in the Point Series. During the season I won 1 heat race and had 5 fast qualifiers. Overall, it was a great year! In October I raced my Mazda Miata at the Fall Sprints SCCA race held at Blackhawk Farms Raceway in South Beloit IL. To round out the year and finish the qualifications to obtain my SCCA Full Competition License, I had to compete in the Fall Sprints SCCA race. 

In 2016 My dad and I along with Barricade Flasher built my Limited Late Model. This year was an exciting year for me.  Even though I started racing late in the year, I took 11th in the point’s series and won a feature race. I was also featured in Late Model Digest.  In October of 2016 I attended the Skip Barber Racing School in Sebring Florida to be able to obtain my Sports Car Club of America (SCCA) Novice Racing License.  My first SCCA race was at the Turkey Trot in Sebring Florida in November. I raced 2 classes, SM and STL. In the STL class I took 20th out of 46 cars and in the SM class I took 34th out of 67 cars.

When I am not racing I enjoy hanging out with friends, riding 4-wheelers/dirt bikes, snowmobiles and downhill skiing. I also help my dad work in our shop for our family owned business and work on my Late Model. For the summer I hold a part-time job. 

My goal is to be able to continue to excel at racing and work my way towards NASCAR.
