Q. How did you get started in the racing scene?
A. I started as a fan who wanted to get involved in racing full time. I
was a lawyer in Portland and quit that job to work with a sports marketing
firm with a racing focus in Boston. We helped teams and drivers in NASCAR and Indy Car racing with various marketing and sponsor related opportunities. I met the folks that owned Oxford Plains Speedway and wound up buying into the track in 1998 and taking full ownership in 2000.
NAPLES, ME (April 20, 2007) – As the off-season for the Pro All Star Series Super Late Models wound down, last year’s top winner on the tour was not quite sure what 2007 held in store for him.
