I started in ProRally in 1996 co-driving for John Lane in a 1976 Group 5 Volvo 262. I competed in only the last event of the season and finished 16th in the NORPAC O2 Co-driver Championship. 1997 brought my first full season of ProRally co-driving, and the first of three years with Fast Lane Racing. Beginners luck saw no DNFs for the team and I received the NWR Class 3, and NORPAC O2 Co-drivers Championships. I also finished 3rd in SuperD West. 1998 was not quite as stellar due to a big off at Wild West, but my season ended with a 5th in NWR Class 1 and 4th in NORPAC Group 5. For 1999 car development brought extreme highs and lows. The Volvo, now with over 600 horsepower, helped me to win first overall co-driver for the Doo Wop Series (the NW Region's most coveted award). However, broken spindles and transmissions also brought two DNFs and one DNS. By seasons end, I was still able to finish 4th in NWR Class 1 and tied for 4th in NORPAC Group 5.
Now it's 2000 and I am looking forward to competing for the SCCA Open Class ProRally Championship and the North American Rally Cup with Paul Eklund and Primitive Racing. I have already spent some time working on the car in preparation for the season which includes 6 SCCA National events and 2 Canadian events. See you at Oregon Trail!
