Moto America 2020 at NJMP

It will be a surprise to no one if I say 2020 has been a very weird year. The pandemic threw a wrench into my Motorsport volunteering hobby as I’m sure it did for everyone else from teams to spectators and fellow marshals like me. It’s been so screwed up that I completely forgot to […]

Lone Star Le Mans 2020 WEC at COTA, Texas

It has been years since I volunteered a race at the Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas. But an opportunity came along to participate in a new role and I basically jumped on it. I realize that this may never happen again but I was so thrilled to be a part of the scrutineering […]

What better way to celebrate my birthday on a trip to Europe than a visit to the BMW World and BMW Museum in Munich. And because it was my birthday the admission was complimentary. Thank you so much BMW AG! Sadly the week-long trip exploring automotive museums in Germany was coming to an end but […]
