All Aboard the Patreon Train

EVERETT, Wash. (January 7, 2021) – Entering my fourth season as an auto racing media writer and photographer, providing content for both Motorsports Tribune and The Podium Finish, I’m self-aware that at least the first half of 2021 will have greater challenges as a media journeyman due to the ongoing pandemic. I’ve thought real hard …

From The Lens: Best of 2020

“It’s still 2020!” – Kyle Busch (August 29, 2020) That peculiar phrase will go down as my personal takeaway on this putrid year. I’ve been over 2020 since May and tried my hardest to carry own. I wish I could tell you I’ve done several portrait photoshoots in the state of Washington and California, but …

One Year Later: Phoenix Reflection

When I called my last 2019 trip “My Road Ends Here,” little did I knew that title would ring different meanings because Phoenix has changed me in more ways than one. On a week everyone are either still waiting for one certain outcome to be determined or ready for 2020 to be over with, I …

I’m So Over This Hatred Filled Year

What I’m going to say is genuinely how I feel about this disturbing moment NASCAR are dealing with right now because this is no doubt the last thing the sport needs on what’s already been a hatred filled 2020. It left me wanting to punch something or lash out, but like I normally do. I …

Housing Puts Driving in the Rear View Mirror

Summertime is here and it’s typically my strongest period of the year. It’s where I strive to get stuff done like I know best – simply owning the competition and doing it with flair.

Lot of emotions kicked into high gear during the final stages of winter, leading to conflicts and new levels of confidence of getting my brand launched, hoping it’ll lead to greater things in my road of “Getting Over” and live the dream on a regular basis. Man! I’m going to be honest with you guys, …

Fighting for Acceptance: What Being 23 Taught Me

Age 23 has a moniker, “nobody likes you when you’re 23.” Finding acceptance is like jumping through a fire, not knowing the implications it’ll produce. Nobody likes you when you’re 23. Not “Year Jordan,” but that phrase has a stigma. I don’t get why this came to be, nor would I care to know because …

A Life Changing Announcement

It’s time to get to the bottom of things and give you an important announcement I’ve been hiding and it has to end right now. Over the past few months, I’ve been through a lot and sometimes it has been the negative outcomes. From being rejected by the San Jose Sharks without watching my resume …

Racing Sour Grapes: My final thoughts on the 2017 NASCAR season

The 2017 NASCAR campaign will go down as one of its better seasons this decade, but also among the worst due to the state of the sport. 10 days removed from the championship-deciding Ford EcoBoost 400 at Homestead-Miami Speedway where more icons of yesteryear (Dale Earnhardt, Jr. and Matt Kenseth) have hung up their helmets …

Keep Your Friends Close: Dale Jr. and Matt Kenseth finished their accomplished NASCAR careers together at Homestead

Dale Earnhardt, Jr. and Matt Kenseth finished their Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series careers in Sunday’s Ford EcoBoost 400 at Homestead. Kenseth quietly finished 8th while Dale Jr. finished three laps down in 25th. Dale Earnhardt, Jr. and Matt Kenseth started their NASCAR careers together and most likely ended their careers together in Sunday’s Ford …
