Dacotah Speedway:  When was your first race and where?
Joe:  In 2000 I found the sport of lawnmower racing.  My first race was Buggies and Blues weekend in front of the grandstand at Dacotah Speedway.  I moved to Legends in 2008 and my first race was in Underwood in May of 2008.

Dacotah Speedway:  Why did you choose the number you currently have?
I was a fan of the 93 Amoco Sprint car in the WOO Series.  It also worked out that my friend had the #3 racing lawn mower and we ran as a team.

Dacotah Speedway:  Do you have a preface ritual or good luck charm?
I always get ready the same way; gloves, helmet, and other equipment are always in the same spot, and I always text my family that I love them before I get in the car.

Dacotah Speedway:  What do you like best about racing at Dacotah Speedway?
Joe:  The racing family we have in the legends cars, the amount of speed of the Legend cars and fun we have.

Dacotah Speedway:  Any favorite non-racing hobby’s that you have?
Joe:  Collecting die cast cars.  Also spending time with my two girls and one boy and my wife.

Dacotah Speedway:  Who will be sponsoring your car for the 2016 season?
Joe:  Brent’s Matco Tools, Balkowitsch Enterprise, Pump Systems, Gartner Trucking, Neset Ranch and Gartner Seed Farm.
