I had some great opportunities working with My Life at Speed in 2014 and I’m thankful for each and every one of them.  I saw some of motorsports greatest drivers, cars and bikes compete at some of the best venues anywhere in the world.  I sincerely hope you all enjoyed following along with us and hope you’ll be here for the next year, and well beyond, as we continue to expand our global footprint.

Next year will bring more coverage, more photos, and an even wider scope of racing, adventure, and the characters that make it great.  Thanks for being part of the family.

Here are some of my favorite photos from 2014.

I've been around some form of racing since I was a kid. First hanging around Ascot in Southern California. Then, after moving to Texas as a teen, I got hooked on drag racing and did that for almost fifteen years. In between I have raced Dirt bikes and Quads.
2011 Marked my 8th and final year racing up Pikes Peak: Five in the Pro Quad division and three in Time Attack. Future racing plans are in the works, but until then I'm at the track shooting for My Life at Speed as much as I possibly can.
