A.J. started racing ARCA stock cars when he was 15 years old, before he drove on the street or had a valid driver’s license. We did not want him to develop any bad driving habits. Our concern was he didn’t know how to use a clutch or shift a four-speed transmission. We had an old army jeep with a three speed so I had him drive on a frozen small lake in back of our house to learn how to shift and develop car control. He spent many hours going in a ¼ mile circle on that frozen pond.
At A.J.’s first race at Pocono in an ARCA car, he was stopped by security and taken into custody because they thought he had stolen a pit pass and driver’s credentials. He looked way too young to be in the pits or drive. They were amazed to learn he would be driving in the ARCA race. Pocono was his first super speedway race. He was fast time and was on the pole most of the qualifying session but ended up fourth. This was the first track he drove larger than a ½ mile racetrack.+ View More
