How long have you been a derby driver?
“I’ve been doing this since I was 16. I’m 39, so a little over 23 years now.”
How did this start?
“For me, it started with a dare. Simple as that.”
Your favourite derby moment ever.
“When I asked my wife to marry me at a derby six years ago.”
The most terrifying derby moment ever.
“One year, I was driving a six-cylinder and got hit real hard on the driver door. The paramedics had to get me out. They wanted me to go to the hospital to get checked out, but I snuck away, got back in a car and got back in the free-for-all.”
What are you driving in 2018?
“I’m driving a Toyota Corolla, a mini-van and I also prepared a pink Ford Taurus car for cancer awareness. My mom has breast cancer and my friend Eric Charbonneau will be driving since he lost his dad to cancer. We had help from Steven Levac for this, he’s a sponsor.”
The demolition derby takes place on Saturday, August 18 at the Vankleek Hill Fair, starting at 7 p.m. Be sure to get there early to get your choice seating for the evening! It’s first-come, first-served!
