I have always had a passion for racing. That is why I work in it professionally.

My love for the sport goes back to childhood. And man do I have fond memories of those years.

I know they are gone forever. But somehow I can relive it in some special way doing things with my little boy, Mark Jr..

Everything I do, I take him along. If I can't take my son, I simply don't go.

I recently announced some racing for some great kids. It was The Pinewood Derby for the Cub Scouts.

Everybody was a champion and therefore we made sure to present all the boys with an award metal.

The proudest I've ever been presenting an award was to my son.
