Racers in Rental Cars is hosted by Cameron Ferré and Don O’Neal. While traveling the country racing cars and working in the auto industry, Cameron and Don, like most of their colleagues, spend way too much time in rental cars, in transit, navigating through the daily minutia of traveling this great country on their way to the racetrack.
We all want to be “pro racers” on the weekend but what about the Monday through Thursday grind that allows us the luxury to live the dream on the weekends?
Those are the stories we want to tell. We also want to spend a significant amount of time talking about the best ways to “upgrade” those rubber mat models the rental agencies give us. We all know you paid the $10 a day for the extra insurance and are foot braking the hell out of those things every weekend and know precisely how many donuts you can do in the parking lot of the Best Western in Indy.
Yeah, we’re talking to you. And we want to do it every week. Come listen here.

    Aaron Fox - Two-Time National Speedway Champion

    Aaron Fox - Two-Time National Speedway Champion

    This week Cam and Don take a stroll down the motorsports underground and chat about getting sponsors and promoting events with more of a grass roots form of motorsports. As many know Cam is a big motorcycle fan and out in California they have a super cool (and nuts) sport called Speedway Motorcycle Racing which also happens to be HUGE in Europe. These riders are highly under rated when it comes to showcasing their talents when ridding a 500cc methanol burning machine WITH NO BRAKES!! Sound nuts, right? And mind you, it is and we love that! As "Speedway" what most call it died out a little bit in the 90s it is in the process of going through a modern-day resurgence here in the states with a new generation of riders coming around the sport. We rang up one of these ridders, #46 Aaron Fox. He not only is a two-time National Speedway champion, but also has lived the "pro racer" life across the pond racing professionally in England.

Awesome show

Look forward to it every Saturday. Great insight into the side of what it takes to go racing that people don’t see , and how to do it well.

Keep it Going, Guys!

Not your typical Drag Racing podcast - and that's why it's pretty rad.
Don's rant is always on point. Cam's response in the 'We Choked' ep to Tony P in the booth had me laughing out loud! I want your autograph, guys! Love the insights from two marketers in the drag racing world. Cheers boys, from Brisbane AUSTRALIA!
