After many wins and a long career on short tracks, he stepped up to the Winston Cup Series driving for the Curb Racing team. He decided at one point to act as crew chief for the team. After this, he got back behind the wheel and drove Midget cars from 1997 to 2003. After retiring from driving he became a driver trainer working with many up-and-coming young drivers.
