Interesting facts about yourself: I once met Evel Knievel in my PJs. It was in Las Vegas, I was asleep in Johnny Mancuso's motor coach after a race when Evel rang the doorbell. I didn't know the thing had a doorbell, so once I figured out what the noise was I opened the door to Evel Knievel! He held his hand out and said Hello; I have received the "Jim McClure" award in 2007 which was an elite award received by a select few each year; I have 2 AHDRA National Championships; 2 IHRA World Championships; 2 AMRA National Championships and was the IHRA Pro Driver of the Year in 2000
