Slowing it Down

I’m sitting on my best friend’s back patio in Tahoe enjoying a self imposed brain and body retreat after finally melting down from a plate beyond full.  I just returned from a hike outside Squaw Valley where I had my ‘ah ha’ moment that I have been in need of since returning from Morocco in April.

I am unbelievably blessed with a very full life, lots of work, great friends and amazing adventures.  In a quest to pack it all in, it seems as I’m living life to the fullest, but there is a part of me that feels like it is passing me by.  Living life at full speed is sometimes a few clicks too fast.

Inspiration Beyond Racing

Every once in a while I feel compelled to share things that lie beyond off-road and racing.  My life has alot of facets and I have several sports I am passionate about.  One of those is snowboarding. I’ve been fortunate to work with Red Bull and appreciate their creativity and […]

Team BFG Contest


I am honored to be selected again to Team BFG, a collection of representatives and racers for BFGoodrich Tires.  BFG is the real deal – a company completely dedicated to off-road.  I can’t tell you how many times I have taken refuge in the BFG pit trailer at races, being handed a great meal, cup of coffee or given a little spot on the couch for a quick nap before hopping in the race truck. The people of BFG are outstanding and committed, so I try to give the brand my best.

Once again this year, there is a competition among Team BFG members called “Select the Seats.”  This year’s edition gives Facebook fans the chance to send a group to compete in the Baja 1000 in a Wide […]

Random Weekly Musings

The headline on the Ad Age article announced the US Women’s Soccer Team will likely lose $10 million in endorsement deals after the loss in the World Cup finals.  Never mind the fact that their athletic prowess was inspiring to so many across our country and globe.  The final 30 minutes against Brazil was about the finest display of athletics and focus regardless of gender we have seen on ESPN in a long time.  I heard men in their 60s, 70s and 80s speaking with awe and pride in their voices.  Oh well girls, you lost your turn to hawk shampoo and other assorted feminine products because of the decisions of some armchair athlete suit back on Madison Avenue.  Just goes to prove – 2nd place sucks.

Speaking of those same decision makers, I had an interesting phone interview with a Sports Psychologist this past week for an article on women and auto racing.  She brought up a topic that I have often heard […]

Car Keys, Veils and Permission

It’s June 20th and I’m on a plane.  I’m shaking off the fact that about one-third of all the comments on Truck Trend’s video coverage of the Gazelle Rally were posted by men shocked I and others were “let out of the kitchen” to compete in Morocco.  Assuming these men don’t have daughters and trying to somewhat turn a blind eye to that pathetic outdated rhetoric, I just opened up to Fortune’s page 106 and was relieved and delighted to read Andy Serwer’s “100 Great Things About America” list.

Of the many highlights I happen to love include:

#1 = Opportunity

#2 = Interstate Highway System (Back roads are great, but…)

#5 = Navy SEALS

#6 = ESPN
