Your motivation in Speedway: Personally, my motivation in Speedway is to improve my speeds, positions and points, with each race meeting. James MacFadden and Stacy Galliford are my Speedway role models, but Derek Rabelo has invigorated me with a never give up ideology, no matter that obstructions you meet. 
How did you get involved in Speedway:  My father (Cam Meehan) has raced within Speedway for numerous years, in classes ranging from Bombers to Super Sedans but my initial initiation into Speedway came when friends of ours graciously offered me a Corolla to race. Since that moment I have been hooked, and I can't wait to see where Speedway takes me in the future.
