BEALE AIR FORCE BASE, Calif. -- "I started racing in BMX when I was 13 years old. At 17, I started racing pro and driving to races around the country. One time I saw a girl racing and wanted to meet her. We dated and got married, and our youngest son started racing when he was eight years old. BMX is a close knit community and racing became a family sport. It's all about balance. You don't have to quit any of the things in life that you get enjoyment out of just to pursue a career. You can be successful and stay well balanced with family, sports, and recreation. The reason I pursued being a Chief was to take care of airmen. And my drive in BMX is the bond I share with fellow riders and my family."
