Rick Nordness is a 2013 graduate of California Connections Academy. He lives in Springville, California. Rick has been racing junior dragsters since he was eight years old. In 2009, he was the Sacramento Track Champion. Attending Connections Academy helped Rick succeed in school while having the flexibility to continue pursuing his passion for racing.
Rick moved to California when he was two years old. He spent his first eight years in Hollister, California, and then moved to Springville when he was 10. He started Connections Academy in eighth grade. As his passion for racing grew, so did the need to travel to various racetracks throughout the state. Connections Academy gave him the ability to work his education around his “need for speed,” without sacrificing either.
