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!

In this episode, I go over my weekend as a crew member on a Chumpcar World Series team, Dead Pedal Racing.

I met up with Ian and Dave from The Team Clearcoat Podcast and set to work on a 1988 Maserati Biturbo. We got to experience both good times and bad in the racing world. Between the 2 seven hour races, we had a bad day on Saturday and a great day on Sunday.

Despite all the low points, we had some pretty great high moments. Overall, it was a great journey, and one I would gladly participate in again.

If you're not listening to Team Clearcoat yet, you should give them a listen.

I'm blogging on Opposite Lock, and the Youtube page is now up with all my previous podcasts.

Remember, there are no strangers in motorsport, only friends you haven't yet met. Keep the shiny side up and the greasy side down!
