**You mentioned earlier that things have been going really well for you and your family. Last year you were working full time while competing in the series. Has this season kind of rejuvenated your career?
Yeah, absolutely. There were a few years with injuries and everything when I was looking at quitting. I got a job and it wasn't like I didn't like the job and wasn't happy. It was just one of those things where with everyone (like me), you can't really get the racing bug out of them. I didn't want to quit, I was just beat up and wasn't riding very well so I didn't really have a choice. I had the opportunity to go race in Arenacross but I was also working full time so I didn't get a chance to get much practice or go to the gym or anything like I normally would to prepare for the season. This year I got laid off during the summer time and it allowed me to focus back on my racing. I'm wide open again, doing everything that I need to do. I'm riding every day during the week. So yeah, it's basically made me feel good and makes me want to continue to race. I think we have plans on going to the final five supercross races after the season is over and I'm trying to go look for a ride to go do outdoors. I'm having fun riding and it's been a long time, but I'm finally healed up enough to where I can ride. So, yeah, it's been a huge change and it's rejuvenated my racing.
