We are an amateur endurance auto racing team. We hope to show everyone that they too can participate in performance driving. We are a relatively new team and learning right along with you. Our assumption is that you know very little to nothing about the sport but are interested in learning to drive better and eventually maybe even race in a local event of interest. We will cover all forms of racing and hope to be entertaining as well as educational.
 
A look into the lives of professional Indycar drivers, reality television stars, and great friends James Hinchcliffe and Alexander Rossi. Though Hinch and Rossi have seen plenty of success on the track, the show is meant to highlight their off-the-track lives, including their unfiltered opinions on what’s trending in popular culture, with each episode featuring a number of recurring, unscripted segments and an interview with a celebrity guest. Off Track is at its heart a sports show, but Hin ...

It all started with a great idea, let’s go to an HPDE event with the hosts of the Shifting Points podcast.

Ken Hill is an accomplished motorcycle racer and sought after coach. Ken was kind enough to join us for a great discussion on track driving and riding.

WOOT Stands for Way Off Our (normal) Topic so this is NOT a driving or racing episode What began as a simple review of James Gunn's new movie The Suicide Squad quickly became a debate of the DC Extended Universe and the MCU from Marvel.

On this issue of Dominating with Dawson, we go into what is meant by log booking or having a race car that is log booked.
