About Derrick

I started racing our family owned factory stock at Manzanita Speedway (AZ) at age 15. While watching the CRA sprint cars I told the people who sat around us at the track that I would race a sprint car one day and everyone got a giggle out of my comment. I joined the Army in 1996 and retired from the Army with 20 years of service in 2016. With a long gap inbetween racing I returned to racing and purchased a micro sprint in 2019 while on active duty. I moved up to racing a full size sprint car in 2012.
