Making sure they remember you

We all know racing is a team sport and without the assistance of your crew, family, and sponsors you’d not be successful in racing. Generally at the end of the year you take your crew to the banquet or out to dinner, you take your family on a well-deserved vacation and you visit your sponsors with an appreciation award. These are all wonderful things to do for those you have established relationships with, but what do you do to assist in generating new relationship to assist you in increasing your success?

PRI 2016 Wrap up

DDR Motorsports owner, Doug Robbie recently attended the annual Performance Racing Industry trade show (PRI Show)in Indianapolis, IN to check out all the newest components for the racing industry.  With the recent purchase of a modified for the 2017 season it was the perfect event to increase the team’s knowledge and establish new contacts for the upcoming season.

Do you run the same stagger as everyone else? If this is you, I pose this question, “Why follow everyone else?”

Doesn’t a racer want to win? So why not lead, instead of follow? Why not as ask why?

In today’s racing world of crate motors, store bought cars, spec tires, etc., why not strive to be more? If you have a true passion for racing you should be pushing yourself to the limit, be on the cutting edge, look to be different, not just follow the herd. But alas, this is what the majority of the racers do. They see someone buy an engine from so and so and they go out and buy one too...

Setting Goals

Setting Goals

In my first post for this website, I wanted to do something that would have an impact on their careers almost instantaneously.  So while searching around for idea, I remembered what I have done with all racers I have worked with, to set a goal or goal for the upcoming season.

Most racers I know when asked what their goal is they triumphantly shout to win, of course! And while I really believe at winning should be the goal of every racer it may or may not be realistic at this current point in your career...
