Tell us about the cars you love to drive
I currently own two track bikes, a Kawasaki ZX6R and a KTM 525SMR that I would ride at AMP and plan to purchase a track day car at some point in the future.
Have you ever been trained to drive?
I have been involved with racing and motorsports in some form or fashion for 17 years. I have raced in local weekly racing series, WERA motorcycle Road racing, PBOC, SCCA, IMSA lites, various Supermoto series, NASA Rally Moto, and AMA National Enduros.
What do you do for a living?
I have been in the auto sales and auto finance business for my entire professional career and have been the President of Sunrise Acceptance, Inc. for the last 9 years. We provide point of sale financing for credit-challenged buyers through several different dealerships in the Mid-south region.
Where do you live?
I live in Cleveland, TN with my wife Jennifer. We are expecting our first child in August.
How do you use your membership? Business? Pleasure?
I have always enjoyed competing in motorsports, but as I get older, I find that I enjoy a more relaxed setting for getting my “speed fix”, so that is the main reason AMP appeals to me. And, the track is less than two hours from my home without having to drive through Atlanta traffic to get there! I plan to use my membership personally, but am also interested in the corporate programs that may be offered. In particular I like the idea of offering a track day or track school to the key employees in my company as a reward or as a team building experience.
