Favorite Track: Mid-Ohio/Watkins Glen (tie)

Most Memorable Track Experience: Ran several laps at the Nurburgring Nordschleife (Old north course) in a rented Mercedes convertible…after cresting a hill, got on the brakes to set up for a turn. Still hard on the brakes, I dialed in some steering (looking to rotate the car a bit) which caused the rollbars to deploy!  Surprisingly loud, I might add.

What are your top 3 bucket list items: I’ll do my car bucket list: 1. Lap the Nurburgring in less than 8 minutes; 2. Lap competently in an F1 car (meaning, no stalls/spins/shunts); 3. Run 200MPH at Bonneville

If you could have any superpower, what would you choose: Immortality
