An Interesting Car-Related Fact About You: So, my first word as a baby (other than the typical mama dada stuff) was Porsche, even pronounced correctly (Por-sha), thanks to my car loving dad, grandpa, and uncle.. started kart racing when I was 11, auto racing in dirt track and drag strips at 15, built and drove a Toyota Supra drag car in an import drag series on the east coast, started racing motorcycles at 22 and ran in WERA and AMA pro-am 1000cc superbike series.. My dad was a factory rider for Honda in the 80s, so I guess motorsports is in my DNA, I had no choice.
