My Mom and Dad for teaching me everything I know today. They made huge sacrifices that allowed me to live out my dreams. My brothers Donnie and Taylor for looking out for their little sister. My best friend Christy for being my right arm. Ty Davis, Destry Abbott and Ryan Hughes for taking me under their wings at some point in my career and giving me that extra push.

Show your parents some love because they are the ones paying for your racing. A wise man once told me that "pain is weakness leaving our body". Last but not least have fun, that's why we ride in he first place.
