Future goals? Win pie eating contest. Even finishing a pie eating contest without suffering an injury would be a good goal as well.
What other hobbies/interest do you have outside of kart racing? Honestly I donít have much time for hobbies outside of kart racing. It takes up most of my spare time. Brandon Comer does let me go out with him on his boat once in a while though. Is that a hobby?
Other comments. I would like to thank VDKA for a great series and for selecting me as driver of the month. Also for the sweet retro jacket I was awarded for The Champion of Champions Race. It has already been worn proudly, just ask Bajer.
I would like to give a special thanks to all the people that help me:
My girlfriend Kissy, My dad, Scotty Bajer, Dagan Bowdoin, Derek Hedgepeth, Gary Banks, Brandon Owen, David Meade, Stephen Adams, and even though he will not show up at a track before feature time Brandon Comer. He helps me load up every week so that counts for something. I am, however, in search of full time pit help so if anyone is interested please feel free to send me a message.
