Tom started his racing career with Skip Barber in 1996 and raced with them until late 1997. After a ten year break, he got into Spec Miata in 2007 and has been driving the Ferrara Racing #00 green Spec Miata since then. He won the Oregon Region ITA Championship in 2008 and has been working on getting the car up to speed while improving his own driving ability to be a competitive racer.

Tom enjoys teaching others the art of racing and he has a great time building their interest in the sport.
