about john

John is a 18-year-old Professional athlete from Abrams, WI that began racing at the age of 5 in go-karts on local clay oval tracks. John ventured into the world of Off-Road Racing at the age of 10 in the Midwest TORC Series. After 2 years he progressed into the Midwest Mod Kart class, which is a smaller version of a PRO 2 race vehicle. These karts travel at speeds of over 80 MPH, and travel 60-70 feet through the air over jumps. In an effort to get more seat time and experience, John entered the Lucas Oil Off-Road National Series in October of 2017, and has since competed in all of the National Races to date across CA, AZ, UT, MO, and NV. In addition, he has participated in the Midwest Short Course League Series, which includes races throughout WI, MI, MN, and IL.
