I joined Beat the Heat in 1997. Over the past 23 years, I have spent countless hours in our middle and high schools talking about the dangers of street racing, drug and alcohol abuse, traffic safety, and staying in school and off drugs and alcohol.  Having been a Drug recognition expert since 1993, it has given me the education and experience to reach out to some of the students who are addicted to a particular drug. Being a drag racer and motor head has enhanced my ability to build a relationship with other students.  For over 25 years, I have taken two high school teams to the Bandimere Memorial and labor day high schools drags. I’m confident that I have reached out to well over a million kids and young adults during my membership with B.T.H.

I will continue to show my 1958 Corvette Super Gas car in parades and races and help all my fellow Beat the Heaters spread the word of Beat the Heat.

I look forward to showing my car at the 2020 B.T.H. world finals and helping all you spread our word.  See ya soon!!!
