I was born in Arizona where my family has resided for over 7 generations. Not only do I love Arizona because of my family’s history but I love the outdoors and the sport off-roading and Arizona’s climate and terrain are perfect for that.
I have spent many hours in my parent’s shop (Gravity Motorsports) tinkering around. Gravity Motorsports is a business that specializes in aftermarket parts for Polaris and Can-Am UTV’s.
I’ve always enjoyed the off-road life which is why I chose to take on racing this year (2019) in the 170 class.
Back in 2018, my parents took the family to Payson, Arizona for a day trip, little did I know they had an ulterior motive. Since we do several trips a year to the cool country it was very easy for them to get me to go along, besides I am just a kid and it’s not like I had any say in it anyways (LOL). When we arrived in Payson, we made a stop at Four Seasons Motorsports and I thought nothing of it. We walked into the store and looked at many of the cool UTV’s and my dad told me to go ahead and get into the Polaris RZR 170 that was on the showroom floor. Being one to not disobey, I jumped right in and started to act as if I was driving it. Shortly after I got in, my mom and dad leaned in and asked me what I thought of it. I, of course, said I loved it and they both laughed and said… well, it’s yours. I about lost my mind!!
Jump ahead a few months… I go out driving my RZR and I am learning how to control it through rough terrain and proper turning and hill climbing techniques. We are doing modifications to improve the safety and performance of the Polaris RZR. I have put a lot of time into learning how to drive safely while racing on a closed course and learning the needed skills of being a great wheelman. Having seat time over this past year has boosted my confidence as a driver. I’m looking forward to this new chapter in my life as I can only get better.
I invite you to follow along on this journey and see where it takes me. Thanks for your support and love.
