What are your thoughts on the 2012 season?

The 2012 season was a great season, my championship chase came down to the very last pass which was exciting for my family, the crowd and me. The staff at RMR was very friendly and were willing to help.

Did any one event or situation change the season for you?

The final race was the game changer. Both Ricky and I had to be on our game the whole day and both of us were on our game.

Did any one person stand out in helping you achieve the championship?

It wasn’t just one person, it was a combination of the whole team.

What have you been doing in the off-season?

I sled with my friends. I study Spanish so I can go to Spain this March and Study abroad. I am also active in National Junior Honor Society and Student Government. I recently participated in the Polar plunge, where I jumped in  frozen water to raise money for Spain.

What do you hope to achieve next season?

I hope to have a successful season. It would be nice to win a championship in Top Junior and Major. I love hanging out with all the racers, it is a special group of friends that is hard to find anywhere else.
