Drivers Bio: 
My addiction to the off-road world started back in about 2010 when I helped a buddy start building his crawler under a lean-to off of his house. Not long after I bought a mildly modified '98 TJ. That lasted about a year and instead of upgrading it chose to buy the old '97 TJ Project Recycle from John Herrick at CRAWL magazine thinking that would be enough. With the dream of someday racing at KOH the TJ went under the knife to build it to run in the 4500 class. After about a year and a half of work it became apparent that it wasn't going to be a competitive rig at KOH. Then one of the old Jimmy's 4x4 spec cars went up for sale and it's been in insane ride ever since! KOH 2019 was a DNF but we got damn close! Missed 2020 due to buying a business and moving and then finished 17th in 2021! And there's no way we'd be here without the support of Chris Sines, owner at Bones Custom Creations in Oregon City and he's sharing the co-driver duties with another great friend Carl McCulloch. I'm very lucky to have the support of my beautiful wife who thinks I'm crazy for doing this but supports me anyway even though she has the task of taking care of two young boys while I'm gone for a week.
