He was into triathlons before getting hooked on car racing.  His first WRX came with a SCCA membership.

In 2004 he made every single practice and event (Yes Southern Cali has a Saturday practice before every Sunday event – I want to make some of these!!!).

He talks about he WRX he piloted to the National Championship in 2015. He has been running the Bridgestone tires (not as much time to test other tires since he now has a wife and young baby).

He talks about the changes from driving AWD to RWD. (adding gas when loose = spinning in RWD).

He uses video over data to check his proximity to cones and lines.

Being an instructor he learned as much as the people he was instructing.

He prefers a drift over a push.

He also won the Super Challenge in 2009 in Wendover (I was a witness to his march to the win since he took me out or better yet helped me take myself out  – he gave me a two cone gift and I gave him three cone gifts on the second side).
