Bio: Ricky’s first full season at Knoxville in 2009 may be best remembered by its ending on national television. A severe leg fracture was the result of a harrowing crash in turn one during the Knoxville Nationals shown LIVE on the Speed Channel.
Weekly treks from Colorado were made that season with his father, and Ricky registered four top ten finishes in 360 competition. Before focusing on Knoxville, Ricky reigned as the 2006 ASCS-Rocky Mountain Rookie of the Year.
2013 marked Ricky’s most successful point-wise to date, as he registered a 9th place standing in the points’ race. After motor problems cost him the 2014 season, Ricky returned in 2015, registering 12th place in the standings.
Previous to racing at Knoxville, Ricky had several successful karting years with three track championships.
