About

Just your everyday Indycar fan! Joined twitter on October for the 13th, 2011, and had no idea what was going on and was just trying to settle in and go with the flow. Three days later, my life changed forever. My childhood hero, the man I shared an amazing ten minute convo with at Iowa in 2011, the driver I idolized, was killed in a crash. Dan Wheldon has always been and forever will be my favorite driver. Since then, I started a blog, and have had the privilege of meeting some amazing people and drivers. Some drivers and other big names following me include (alphabetical) Mikhail Aleshin, Michael Andretti, Beaux Barfield, Conor Daly, Connor De Phillippi, Devlin Defrancesco, Dario Franchitti (favorite), Shea Holbrook, James Jakes, Michael Johnson, Anders Krohn, Pippa Mann, Miles Maroney, Josef Newgarden, Kyle O'Gara, Simon Pagenaud, Spencer Pigot, Martin Plowman, Junior Strous, Petri Suvanto, Tristian Vautier, Zach Veach, EJ Viso, Jacob Wilson, and Justin Wilson. I am very lucky indeed.

I was hook lined and sinkered into being a racing fan when my parents took me to the 2006 Indianapolis 500, which will go down as one of the greatest races ever. Other races I have attended (all Indycar): 1999 Gateway, 2001 Elk Hart Lake, 2003 Indianapolis 500, 2006 Indianapolis 500, 2007-2012 Iowa, and 2012 Indianapolis 500.

I love tweeting with fans and drivers about racing, movie, current events, or just about anything! Don't be shy!

For those who are following me on Twitter, thanks! For those who aren't, my twitter handle is @Indycar_MN (https://twitter.com/#!/Indycar_MN) and my Youtube channel is IndycarMN (http://www.youtube.com/user/IndycarMN?feature=guide). If you need to reach me via email, my email is indycarmn@gmail.com

They call me the Honey Badger because I am not afraid to go toe to toe with anyone, nor do I care if you don't like me. However, that does not mean I don't care about your opinion. The exact opposite is true, I value everyone's opinion! Just don't kick a Badger : ) #Badgerness

Thanks for your time and for viewing the site!
