Day-to-day life: Currently, I work in Fire Sprinkler design for H2O Fire Protection, where I design fire sprinkler systems, and perform all the hydraulic calculations before our install group installs them. Our main nitch market is mega-plex multifamily residential apartment buildings ranging from 3 story to 22 story high rise buildings. Beyond Fire Sprinkler design, I also act as a project manager for all projects that I perform the design, computer based design blue prints, as well as any BIM 3D coordination design. Beyond working full time (+), working in the race shop 4-5 nights a week and racing on average 35 races a year, I like to spend time with my gorgeous wife in the outdoors either up in the mountains hiking, snowboarding or doing at-home mini-projects. To stay in shape, beyond hitting the gym when I have the time, I like to play a little Ice and Roller hockey with some of my racing friends in which we usually make a couple leagues in the winter/off season. Also in the off season, my racing buddies and I stay competitive and active racing carpet pan RC cars, where there is only one track in Colorado and have to travel a little over an hour to get to. Therefore, yes, we take it serious.

Know More About Chris
Favorite Race Track (K&N): I would say probably Iowa, even though we struggle there.
Favorite Track (Overall): That would probably be Charlotte Motor speedway when I ran a Truck race there back in 2010.
Most Memorable Moment: Winning first K&N race at Colorado National Speedway, giving me a shot at a full time K&N ride, and then at Irwindale last year, our first K&N win of the 2015 season, in which started our journey towards our 2015 K&N West Championship.
Dreams and Goals: My goals for this year is to win races and have a chance to double down to our second championship. My dream would be to get the opportunity to get back in the seat of a NASCAR Camping World Truck or XFINITY Series car by the end of this year.
