If you’ve come through autocross registration this year — or joined us at a regional meeting — you’ve probably already met me. I knew I wanted to race when my dad bought a 1967 Porsche 911 and started racing about 15 years ago. I always enjoyed going to the races with him, especially when I could take a ride along on the track. I started autocrossing in 2014, and this year I finally got my chance to race the Porsche with my dad. Nothing beats 150mph down the front straight into turn one… and I do mean nothing.
