The Rags to Races Podcast: Motorsports and Racing for Everyone

For years, I've wanted to get involved in motorsports, Growing up, I never had anyone to help me learn how to get started. As a teenager, I thought you needed to have piles of money to even get started in racing. Now I'm all grown up, and over the years, I've found many ways to get my fix at the track, even when I had no money at all. The Rags to Races Podcast is here to show you how anyone can get involved in motorsports, no matter what the budget you're working with is. So, if you're the kind of person that lives for auto racing in any and all forms this podcast is for you. From SCCA to Drifting and Autocross to Rally, Jake is going to cover it all!

This is the episode Jake built this podcast around! Do you want to get deeper into motorsports than the average spectator and couch potato? How would you like to have an Indy Car come within inches from you at speed? Do you want to race, but don't have the budget for a car? This is the episode for you!

This week, Jake talks to Chris Buccola, a local SCCA Corner Marshall. Chris has been volunteering at events from the local club race all the way up to the 24 hours of Le Mans! To Jake's surprise, it isn't that hard to go from working at your local event to even getting behind the scenes at a Formula 1 race. Chris tells some great stories and shares just how easy it is to get YOUR start as a Corner Marshall.

If you're interested, you can get your start at and look up the F&C person in the contacts page (at least, that's where Jake found it in the Chicago Region page).

Check out the AMAZING pictures Chris shared with me on all my social media: @ragstoraces on Twitter and @rags2races on Instagram
