Day 1 Done at My New Favorite Track

The Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course is no stranger to me.

In fact, I’ve been to this racetrack more than any other on the planet thanks to family trips to AMA motorcycle events while I was growing up. I even saw my first Verizon IndyCar Series race here back in 2011 or 2013 or something.

But my first few hours awake today made this place my new favorite racetrack, complicating my love for the Raceway at Belle Isle Park.

Why I Deleted All Social Media Apps

I spent the weekend of July 8–9 up north at Higgins Lake with lots of family, mainly celebrating my grandma’s 70th birthday but also engaging in a series of other activities that I get to do at most once yearly.

Roczen Impresses at Monster Energy Cup

The unique Monster Energy Cup took place last night in Las Vegas and saw the current and future faces of Supercross do battle on a unique track inside and outside Sam Boyd Stadium.

The premier “Cup” class, featuring the sport’s biggest names including reigning Supercross champion Ryan Dungey and new Lucas Oil Pro Motocross champion Ken Roczen, hit the track three times throughout the night. The format is much simpler than the one utilized during a traditional evening of Supercross: three races/main events. Win all three, you leave $1 million richer.

New Year, New Site for Me

I’ve previously had a few personal dot-WordPress websites that I consistently neglected. I hope this one, a much more serious one, turns that around.

The goal is to do a fair amount of writing here in categories ranging from major updates on my life to my thoughts on racing, media, technology and more.
