"Gentleman Jim" raced in four decades, winning in a wide variety of equipment from Cutdowns to Supermodifieds and Sprint Cars on dirt and asphalt at over a dozen different tracks.

His 1970 Late Model division performance at Star (21-wins) is the highpoint on this Ipswich, MA racer's resume that also includes NESMRA Supermodified wins at Thompson and Westboro Speedways and Sprint Car triumphs at Monadnock, Claremont and Beech Ridge. Checkereds were also secured at The Pines, West Peabody, Arundel, Lee, Hudson and Dover.

Leaving the cockpit, he served as a race official and won acknowledgment in race-car restoration.
