Was recently offered an instructing position with Simraceway Performance Driving Center (formerly known as Jim Russell) in Sonoma, CA -
the exact place where I began my motorsports career more than ten years ago.
By the age of 13, I had read practically every book on racing that I could get my hands on.
Also remember excitedly working for months to pay for my first Techniques of Karting class.
And later, feeling so pumped about being invited back for the school's scholarship runoffs.
Everyone's journey into motorsports is different in some way, just glad I found my way back.
And after having held so many different jobs over the years, can truthfully say that this is the most content I've ever felt in any form of employment.
Every single day I get to combine my passions for racing and teaching.
The machinery that's ever-present sure doesn't hurt either
With the ups and downs of the last 18 months, job-hunting, working multiple jobs,
and trying to rack my brain to figure out a way to make this dream happen,
I had to take a moment and realize how fortunate I am to be in this current position.
For the chance to do what I love,
and for the extremely experienced, supportive, and passionate cast and crew that comprise of Simraceway.
If you have any interest in racing, driving an automobile fast, or improving your technique,
I'd highly recommend coming out for a program - you'll love it
