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, Jake and Brooks talk to a good friend of the show, Rich Walke. Rich races with the SCCA Majors in STL class in a 1987 Mazda RX7.

Rich shares with us some great stories, but more importantly how to get your start in road racing. Rich has been racing for over 41 years and shares his ups and downs in the sport. He also tells us how we can get our start there as well.

While running in the Majors isn't in everyone's budget, there are ways you can make it work, and ways you can get involved at little to no cost to yourself. Get out there, start talking to those already racing, and jump in feet first!
