As most of my friends know, and you now as well, I listen to audio books during my daily commute. My current book, about history’s first billionaire, is titled “Titan: The Life of John D. Rockefeller, Sr.” It’s a massive book about a massively complex man, and it’s been a fascinating “read.”
The competitive realm of racing spans the landscape, encompassing virtually every form of transportation. The need for speed has found its way into everything from lawnmowers to heavily modified cars and motorcycles, leading enthusiasts on an endless pursuit to generate more power and performance in their quest for max velocity.
This week has brought two main events that we here at AMSOIL and our fellow enthusiasts look forward to all year. Sturgis is about to wrap up, and we’ve had some big things taking place that are sure to leave attendees a little star struck.
