Florida born, he came to Connecticut in the early 1960s and started racing in Plainville Stadium's Novice division. Moving to Modifieds, he was a winner at Plainville and Riverside Park – three straight Riverside 500s, 1974 through '76 - and a steady competitor at Stafford, Thompson and Waterford.

Very popular in the grandstands and in the pits, he was very good on equipment, evidenced by the list of top cars he drove - Czarnecki 20, Berndt 54, Simons 9 - and his expertise in long-distance races including the L1978 - L250 lap Riverside Park Triple Crown Series finale. He retired in 1983.
