Sadly for those of us living in cooler climates, the race season has reached its end or will be doing so shortly. In order to make the most out of the tire life you have left over, it’s important that you properly store them during the off-season. Taking the below simple steps will help ensure […]

Club Racing extends so much farther than just what happens on the track. Sure, racing cars side-by-side and pushing to the very edge on-track is absolutely amazing! It’s a place where you are purely living in the moment. You cannot focus on the daily stress of work or financial worries, not even a terminal illness. […]

I suppose it is just human nature for some people to cheat. When you get to the point in your racing career where your next goal is to start winning races, cheating can become tempting for some people. I have heard many ways people attempt to rationalize cheating, such as, “Everyone else is, so why […]

Earlier this year while at a race, I found myself almost searching for excuses why I couldn’t go out and race that day. At the same time I knew that once I finally got out on track, the nervousness would have a way of disappearing as I entered into another world. For whatever reason on […]

To start with, in-car video is pretty darn cool. I found myself going to an event, and not an hour after getting home, sitting down and watching the video of what I just did. My wife just looked over at me and said “didn’t you have enough of racing? Now you want to watch the […]

The eternal question in club racing: What does it take to become a front-runner? People try to pinpoint the few qualities that it takes to run up front, but it really consists of a total package. Yup, you guessed it – you are the package’s core. Throughout this resource, I continuously stress how important it […]
