In 2001, he began racing a full time schedule, posting two top-five finishes, and then finishing 10th in points the following year. In 2003, he replaced Mike McLaughlin in the NASCAR Busch Series, nailing down two top-ten finishes and was named runner-up in the Rookie of the Year honors, despite running the full Busch Series schedule unlike award winner, David Stremme. He retired from racing at the conclusion of the season.
