A racing memory with Pat: The Hawkeye 100 at Hamilton County Speedway in Webster City, IA in 1995. It was a two day show & we had planned on going. I had to go out on the road that day when Pat called to see if I was going to make it back in time to get there. I had completely forgotten all about it. Pat decided not to go the first night since I wasn't going to be back in time. We decided to go ahead & try to make it in on Saturday night knowing we would have to start at the back of the B-mains. I don't know how he did it, but he qualified for the final A-main. He started the A-main 17th. Lap after lap he was slowly working his way towards the front & when the final checkered flags flew, Patrick was the winner of the Hawkeye 100 feature. A night I will never forget

A racing memory with Pat : I mostly just work with Pat and I'm only at a few races with him throughout the year. I have been his engine builder for more years than I can remember..... A memory I have with Pat is an experience I will never forget. Pat and I got stranded in a snowstorm last winter after a meeting in Ankeny - work related we both knew wouldn't be good. We made it part way home and had to call a friend of mine to come with a tractor to save us in Pat's Honda in the worst snowstorm we had ever seen. We spent the night at their house warm with suds and food instead of in a snowbank and even had breakfast in the morning!!
