I have round 2 of the East Coast Pirelli GT4 Americas Championship coming up this next week and I have 2 clear thoughts running through my head.  One says, "Your good, last time was a fluke and you've got this- you're prepared, have a great car, a great teammate and you'll be fast right out of the box."  The other version keeps working its way into my head.  It says, "Last time you were here, you hit the wall going backwards a...

People are always asking me if you really have to be in good shape to be a race car driver?  I have a short answer as well as a longer version, but the general idea is a BIG YES!  Race drivers are some of the most fit athletes in the world and there are many reasons why.

I find that having confidence in the race car is one of the most important advantages that I can bring to each race.  I've heard it said many times a...

This is a year of new experiences- First, I've taken on a different role...  Driver and coach, and second, I'm now in charge of the Fastlife Blog :)  So watch out!  Regarding the blog, I'll be giving you an update every week.  Depending on travel with races, I'll try and get it out on Monday, but it could be Tuesday or Wednesday due to our crazy schedule and juggling act.  So please tune in and be patient!  After race weekends...

This week has been surprisingly enjoyable.  We enjoyed some very nice family time on the 4th of July.  Derek drove his dad in the parade in a beautiful new Corvette from one of our dealerships, TC Chevy.  Ryann and our nephew Dutch rode along.  Haylee and I both had birthdays.  Haylee turned 17, she's growing up fast!  And we won't mention my age!  As my dad says, "I'm ageless."  I do believe that life is a state of mind!...

There's so much more that happens in our life, than just the racing.  I though this week we'd ask the kids what their perspective is!  So here you go!

A Chat with Ryann-Age 11

What is it like to be a race car drivers' daughter?

It's cool, fun to watch and learn about racing.  

Is there anything you don't like about it?

No, I think it's pretty fun.  I liked it when my Dad won in Texas both races.  I thought that was really...

Thank you "six pound, eight ounce, sweet baby Jesus" for my new iMac Pro.  This week I met with a colleague who referred to my old iMac as a computer that "came over on the Oregon Trail."  Where are the crying, laughing emojis when I need them?  Sometimes you just have to laugh at the absurdity of life and our decisions.  I don't know why it takes me so long sometimes to make changes that will actually make my life easier.  I'...
