Patrick has only been racing radio-controlled vehicles for a little more than one year, but he has enjoyed immediate success. He attributes his meteoric RC rise to his attention to vehicle preparation and his love of video racing games. In his first non-club race last November, Patrick utilized his steady driving style to finish third in the Pro 4 Open Short Course class at the Outback Turkey Shootout at AMain Hobbies Outback Raceway.
This season has been even better for Patrick, qualifying for the A mains in 13.5 2wd Buggy and Pro 4wd SC at the 3rd Annual Outback Shootout in Chico, California and placing second in 4wd Expert Short Course at the Traction Raceway Showdown in Reno.
A 23-year-old student at UC Davis, Patrick is majoring in psychology with a mathematics emphasis. He was a member of the UC Davis Cycling Team in 2009 and 2010.
