Danna Van Noy joins me to talk about how to get your spouse involved and be supportive of your driving addiction! Part marital advice, part motivator, it’s a fun conversation about a “tricky” topic. We also talk about why so many drivers are also entrepreneurs, adrenaline sports, expanding your comfort zone, and how to protect your car’s finish when on track.
Danna and her husband Brian have recently launched a very cool product called Protect N Peel. It’s a simple product that you paint on your car before going to the track, and then peel it off afterward – and it’s protected the paint in the meantime. They developed the product out of necessity, having started tracking their Porsches a few years ago, primarily with the PCA.
Danna is offering a 50% discount off of an order of Protect n Peel. Go to www.ProtectnPeel.com, and use the code “speedsecrets” to get the discount.
Jack Baruth joins me to talk about whatever is bugging him. Amongst other things, we talk about funding to help young drivers make a career in racing, the mental game of driving, track day safety, HPDE instruction, and how to make the most of a race start.
Jack’s Speed Secret #1: “At the start of spring races, push hard until there’s no reason to – for at least the first few laps.” Speed Secret #2: “Ask yourself what people around you know that you don’t.”
Jack is one of the most prolific automotive journalists, but more importantly, he’s a brilliant writer who digs deeper into every subject he tackles than most. He writes for Road & Track, both in the print magazine and online. Follow him at:

Chris Wehrheimjoins me to talk about karting, and how you can use it to improve your driving, no matter what you drive. We also talk about why some young drivers make it, and some don’t, but mostly discuss ways you can use a kart to make you a better driver.
Chris has won a lot in racing (see below), but it’s what he’s done outside of the car/kart that I think is most impressive. From coaching and managing drivers, to creating driving gloves, the same drive that made him win on the track is helping him be successful off the track (a common trait amongst other drivers, as we discuss in this episode).

Cameron Norsworthy joins me to talk about flow, or getting into the zone. There are many factors that contribute to triggering a “flow performance,” and we talk about the most important ones. What’s very cool in this episode is that he actually takes a few minutes to lead listeners through a short visualization session, and helps you identify what will help you get into the zone more often.
Cameron is the founder and Performance Director for The Flow Centre, and is an athlete, author, entrepreneur, ICF coach, sports psychologist in training, and speaker surrounding topics on flow, performance, creativity, decision-making and innovation. He’s coached numerous World Champions, executives, entrepreneurs, and high profile military personnel. He is passionate about disseminating information on flow and coaching people to find their flow.
Go tohttp://theflowcentre.com for more information about flow, and what Cameron and his team are doing at The Flow Centre. There are some great resources there, too.

Jamie Stiehr joins me to talk about vintage and club racing, how to grow participation in our sport, how to help charities through racing, and the Race Against Kids’ Cancer (RAKC). Many individuals and teams have used motorsport as a platform for raising funds for a good cause, and the RAKC, which supports the Morgan Adams Foundation is a great example. The event has been successful in raising over three-quarters of a million dollars, and has now branched out into a separate event in Texas.
Jamie has raced with the Rocky Mountain Vintage Racing club for years, as well as in the SCCA – both in Formula Ford. He also races a BMW 2002 in vintage racing, and has served as the club’s chief instructor for their annual driving school.
