What was your biggest influence?
“Watching Larry ( Drums ) Brancaccio growing up at Atco NJ , When I started riding a Nitro bike He used to watch me run and always had positive feedback and kept telling me I was doing great and just keep riding hard. He said he could see it in my eyes I would overcome and be successful at anything I do. After his horrible crash he would call me every race and ask how I was doing. He truly cared about racers and didn’t expect anything in return. God bless Drums May he R.I.P.
I couldn’t do this without God helping me overcome
