Bio:

Eric stormed into the Knoxville Raceway as a rookie in the 305 class in 2017, and not only won Rookie of the Year honors, but took two features and claimed the track championship! He followed that up with seven more feature wins in 2018 and his second consecutive track title. 2019 saw a move into the 360 class. While mechanical woes saw him miss a few nights, he still registered a 17th place point standing.

Eric started in Karts at the age of 10. He raced at Jamaica Raceway, Newton Speedway and all over the Midwest, winning several major events. He was track champion at Jamaica in 2009.

In 2011, Eric moved to a Micro-Sprint. His first season culminated in Rookie of the Year honors as he finished seventh in points. In 2012, he finished 4th in points and followed that up with three straight years as Iowa Micro-Sprints Point Champion.

In 2016, Eric moved into 305 sprint cars racing at the Iowa State Fair Speedway in Des Moines, placing 7th in points.
