How did you get started in racing?

No stranger to the dirt, John has raced both short-course and competed in numerous desert races. John began competing in the Baja 1000 starting in 2002 - as well as the Baja 500, San Felipe 250, SCORE 250, and Mint 400 where he has pitted for both Curt and Todd Leduc.
