Autocross Experience 2003-2004
I drove a 2001 Dodge Neon ACR in the G-stock class from 2003-2004. In both years I finished 2nd in the points winning several times in the process. I've run on both stock street tires and racing compound tires.
Skip Barber Race Series 2005-Present
In 2005 I officially began my racing career with the Skip Barber Race Series at Virginia International Raceway. I ended the 2005 season with a 7th place in the final point standings out of 78 drivers. In 2006, I repeated the 7th place spot this time out of 95 drivers and scored more points. For 2007, I ran a limited schedule of only 3 race weekends (1 at Daytona and 2 at Lime Rock Park).
* Anyone can drive a fast car, few can drive a car fast.
* Auto racing, bull fighting, and mountain climbing are the only real sports...
all the others are just games.
* Fast cars drag race, fast drivers road race.
* Faster, faster, faster, until the thrill of speed overcomes the fear of death...
* I feel safe when I'm on the racetrack, I really do. I know that I'm surrounded by the best drivers in the world. That's something you can't say when you're driving down the interstate. (Sterling Marlin)

All Around the World in Orlando.
This past Friday I had a Margarita in Mexico, some Tanquray in Great Britain, Sake in Japan and a little Grey Goose in France. I also walked to these countries too. Quite a feat for one day, right? If you haven't guessed where I was by now, I'll tell you. I was in Disney's Epcot Center. The best of all the Disney parks in my opinion. It's been my favorite ever since I was a kid. I think visiting all the countries is why I like it so much.
Now, I wasn't in Orlando just to go to Epcot. Disney was a small diversion from my trip to the Performance Racing Industries Trade Show. This trade show...
I haven't changed my mind... just an added idea.
I knew it would happen. If I were a betting man I could have made a lot of money. I changed my mind about my promotion demo again. Well, not exactly, more like, I have some new ideas for a group demo to go along with our individual demonstrations. See, there are three of us being promoted. Two getting our 2nd Dan and one getting his 1st Dan. The other two besides me are father and son and they are planning to do a demo using the Jo Staff (a shorter version of the Bo Staff). And with me planning on using the 3-Section Staff and Kali Sticks, a thought occured (these long nights at work realy...
I've Changed My Mind... (for now anyway).
If you recall, in a previous entry, I said that I would do my promotion demo with nunchucks incorporated into a form. Well, I was going through my weapon collection and found something that I totally forgot I had. A 3-piece staff. It's basically a Bo staff that's been cut into thirds which are connected by chains. It looks like this __..__..__ the lines being the sticks and the dots being the chain. Now, do I have any idea how to use this thing?... Not really. But I know the basic principal. Hold the two ends like Kali sticks and use the middle portion for blocking. Or, something like that....
