From the Three Pedal Mafia and the Everyone Racers podcast (“Mental” Hours #1, 2, & 3, lol)
Mental is one of our earliest friends from racing. We originally “met’ him online when we had been on one episode of the Everyone Racers Podcast. We finally met Mental in person at our first race at NJMP in May of 2018. Our race went exceptionally well. However, his was not one of his favorite races as we discussed in this episode.
Mental is a very accomplished and experienced driver who has competed in many types of racing series and disciplines as well as being an instructor. He is very skilled but self deprecating and extremely approachable. If you ever bump into him on the track, please say hello. But only if you have a few minutes to talk, lol.
Alan, Vicki and Bill talked with Mental for over three hours for this episode. Unfortunately, some of Alan’s audio was lost so his “English brother Alan” stepped in for him a few times. But, still we ended up with our longest episode by far at just under 3 hours. So if you want a podcast to listen to on the way to work, we may have covered your whole week’s commute with this one.
We covered a wide variety of topics and many, many stories, some of which even applied to racing. We hope you feel like you know him a little better after this episode and we are very happy to call him a friend.
