Getting Back Into Something You Loved

Table of contents

12 years ago I drove my car into the garage, I put the cover on her, and I turned off the lights behind me.

Racing was something I was so passionate about, but it wasn’t a cheap hobby – so I made the decision to focus on my career instead.

Many failed businesses, and lessons that needed to be learned before I could dive into my passion with both feet without taking away from my family.

I am beyond excited to be able to work on my passion again. So much has changed in the Honda scene in the 12 years I’ve been out… but I’m very excited to get back into it.

Shout out to Richard Todd at Richtuned motorsports who has been helping me with the engine work – and I’ve been so grateful to be able to learn from them in the times I’ve been at the shop. Being able to work with diehard Honda enthusiasts is one of the highest honors in my opinion.

Shout out to Brian K. Spiker at Trabslab who is helping me rebuild the transmission to make sure all of the power makes it to the pavement. Dude is a wealth of knowledge with transmission work and I feel blessed to fit into his busy schedule.

Shout out to Travis Barona at TrustFab @trustfab on IG. Travis is helping me rebuild my AWD parts to revive new life into the 25+ year old parts.

Shout out to Matt Hurlbut and the team at SpeedFactory Tuning & Fabrication for creating industry leading parts to help me go vroom even better. Stoked to rep your products my dudes.

Shout out to my Honda bros for making the journey fun 12 years ago as well as today. Glad we’re all getting back into it.

It’s such a wonderful feeling getting back into something that I loved so much, and didn’t know when or if I’d be able to get back into.

PS if you have the opportunity to work with these cats, consider yourself lucky. There’s no one better.
