Brief History
Eddie began racing in the Open Wheel Modified division the weekend after graduating from high school.  He won his heat race and finished 2nd in the feature at Southern Ohio Speedway (Wheelersburg, Ohio) the very first night that he ever raced. He would go on to move up to full-time competition in the Late model division at the end of the 1996 season and won his first feature the second night out at Thunder Ridge Speedway (Prestonsburg, Kentucky). After winning the 2002 Battle of the Bluegrass Championship, Eddie moved to West Virginia to pilot the Carl Grover Motorsports #28 beginning in 2003. He has driven for the team since. All of the motors utilized by the team are built in-house by car owner, Carl Grover.
