Bio: After spending several summers as a pit crew member, Joe was able to fulfill his dream of driving a sprint car in 2000. The first season was spent learning to tame the high banks of Lake County Speedway in Madison, SD. The Patriot Racing team has raced full schedules at local tracks including Huset’s Speedway, I-90 Speedway, and Jackson Speedway over twelve of the last fifteen seasons, breaking only to deploy with the SD National Guard in 2004, 2008, and 2011. Joe’s racing career includes fifteen A Feature wins and numerous Top fove finishes. He enjoys the experience gained from racing at different tracks and is looking forward to the 2015 season. A special thanks to crew members Justin Lebahn, Bob Bessman, and Tyler Jensen for their hard work and dedication.
