Early on my Dad would have to sneak out of the house to go snowmobiling. Then my grandparents gave me a 120 for Christmas and I drove it all winter around the yard. Dad was at a summer snowmobile drag race with his brother Vic, who was racing at the time and noticed the 120’s snowmobiles racing in ovals on the grass. Dad and I began the relationship of driver and mechanic all by the age of 5. I raced snowmobiles for 6 years until life gave us no option to switch to car racing. I had two World Championships and two State Championships in snowmobiles.
The car racing had been a huge change from the snowmobiles but has been a positive one for me and my family. I raced two years in a Bandolero, with my second year winning over half of the races we finished. I finished up with a points championship at the Milwaukee Mile and third at Madison International Raceway (we missed one race). Overall I felt great about the year and wasn’t sure what the next year would bring.
In 2008, my parents sold my Bandolero and purchased a Legend car. My Rookie year driving I finished up Rookie of the Year and second in points at MIS. My second year as a Legend driver, I raced 21 times and won 11 races. Finished up second in points at MIS and winning the 2009 Wisconsin Semi-Pro Title. I had the opportunity to race 2 Summer Shootout races at Charlotte, I won the Rookie race. In 2010, I moved up to the elite Legend Pro Division racing 24 times and winning 7 races and capturing the 2010 Wisconsin Pro Title. Our highlight of the year I was able to race at Charlotte Motor Speedway for the Summer Shootout Series were I finished 15th overall in points.
2016 Fastrac Racing brought home the WI Dells Raceway Legend Track Championship, we have never really raced for a championship – so this was something we wanted to do. We also won the big race at Hawkeye Downs for the $1000 to win.
We have always enjoyed traveling and racing at different tracks, racing with other drivers. We had the opportunity February 2018 to travel to Citrus County Speedway in Florida and race Winter Nationals. The 41 car driven by Tony in the Masters division made it through all 5 races with his best finish being 18th out of 40 top cars! Aaron finished up 8th in points for the week. Overall we were happy to put the cars in the trailer in one piece.
As 2019 race season approaches we are working in the race shop getting the cars prepared for the season. Aaron will be in a brand new Legend car, FZ09 motor.
