Shell V-Power Nitro Plus

Todd, Jake, myself, and Jason in a virtual reality fuel world

Hey everyone! A few weeks ago I had the absolute pleasure of “Doing the Double”. That means I was in Indianapolis, for the Indy 500, then flew to Charlotte for the Coca-Cola 600. It is something that only a hand full of people have ever been able to do. I was joined by my good buddies Jason from Engineering Explained, and Todd from Formula1Blog. Two razor sharp dudes that I always love being around and talking cars. It was a jam packed weekend, that I will not soon forget.

Note:
This trip was sponsored by Shell, and UEG.
