Once a Gearhead, Always a Gearhead

It's no secret that I grew up in the garage with my dad, and I have a love for fast cars. Dad's nickname for me was Hot Rod and for good reason -  I may or may not have had a habit of sticking my foot into the accelerator and an affinity for doing burnouts at every opportunity.

My first car was a 1972 Chevelle with a limited-slip differential, and within the first year of getting my license, I burned through the entire right rear tire - all the way to the metal threads.

You Can Take the Girl Out of the Garage

You can take the girl out of the garage but you can't take the garage out of the girl. While I have grown out of my burnout phase, for the most part, I do drive a rear-wheel drive sports car, and I still have a deep appreciation for performance, speed, and handling. It's that love of speed and performance that made me so excited to learn that we have a racing simulator here in Evansville. Not only can you race, but you can drift too!
