My USAC Silver Crown vintage car was first driven in 1986 by the great Rick Vogler. For the next several years it was driven by another fine USAC driver, Warren Mockler. By the early nineties the car was retired and ultimately restored to it's 1986 appearance. Today I drive it in vintage events at some of the great historic tracks around Indiana.

This is my 2005 Rakavon Formula 500. We converted it to a GSXR-600 engine and have been racing in the SE Division of SCCA for several years. We won the 2019 and 2020 Divisional Championships, finished 2nd in the Formula 600 Challenge Series, and 10th in the National Championship RunOffs this year. We are looking forward to next season!
