What are your favorite hobbies in the off-season?
To be honest, I don’t have time to do a lot outside of my work, but I do like to snowmobile. I got one brand new in 2007, but I think I only have 900 miles on it. 
What do you do for work?
We own a scrapyard, we buy metal, and we plow for two towns. Rowland’s Recycling is the name of the business, and my father and I own it. We’ve always had a junkyard but just recently we got a scrap yard too.

What are your favorite hobbies in the off-season?

I love to downhill ski in the winter. That is definitely my favorite thing to do.  I also do a lot of reading during the off-season.  It is my time to catch up on my favorite hobbies.

What do you do for work?

I am a mechanical engineer for CFR. I mostly work with robotics and custom fabrication machinery. 

 What is your biggest life accomplishment?

I would say my biggest life accomplishment was when I built my own Asphalt Modified to race the Valenti Modified Racing Series.  In my second career race with the Series, I qualified 24th out of 32 cars for the race.  It felt very good to have done it in something I built myself.

2012: 7th place overall on the American Canadian Tour. 


What are your favorite hobbies in the offseason?

Skiing.  My boys just turned 12 and 13 and they are snowboarding and skiing so I love skiing with my wife and kids who I don’t get to see much during race season.  I also coach recreational basketball with my kids.

What do you do for work?

I am a sales rep.  I sell heating products to plumbing and heating wholesalers for Dan Davis Sales.

What is your biggest life accomplishment, would you say?

Honestly, I’m proud of being able to raise my family.  My wife and I raised two good boys, we have a nice house, and we live in nice neighborhood.  I’ve just surrounded myself with good people.  My grandfather use to tell me if you surround yourself with good people good things happen, and I’ve had a lot of good things happen.  Winning Loudon was obviously my biggest racing accomplishment ever, but I have to tell you finishing third down in New Smyrna, that was a huge accomplishment too.

2012: Finished 13th in the ACT US Point Standings
 
What are your favorite hobbies in the offseason?
I downhill ski a lot with my family, and snowmobile. I also do a lot of hunting. I was just in Saskatchewan, Canada for eight days, and I’m going hunting again with my two boys after Christmas for four days. I did get a deer on my trip that pushed 300 pounds, but 3 years ago I got one that was 326! 
 
What do you do for work?
I am a logging contractor. I buy big chunks of land and clear them for development or I cut and clear land for other land owners and foresters. Logging is all I’ve ever done. I was introduced to it when I was 10 years old and now I own my own company. I have seven employees that work for me and I still go out into the woods every day. I actually probably work more today than I did 10 years ago.
 
Big Plans for 2013?
I am running the full American Canadian Tour schedule. Really hoping to pick up where we left off in the Milk Bowl. Things were really clicking, plus we have some new team members and a new car for 2013.
