Racing Adventures with John Ackerman
Bill Caswell and John Ackerman reminisce over their racing adventures from Rally Tennessee to the Nurburgring 24hr to Foutecross to the Monaco Grand Prix to the 24hrs of Lemons.
The two discuss the best ways to see races, and how others sneak into sold-old races. They cover their first year entering the Baja Pig in the Baja 1000 and other important racing stuff like “How to destroy a BMW 750Il using a Dodge Neon.”
Covid, Sim Racing, & Anders Green!
Bill Caswell discusses Sim Racing and other effects of the Covid Pandemic on motorsports with Anders Green. With actual racing on hold, many turned to simulator racing including the pro racing series and manufacturers. Drivers got paid real cash to race “video games” and some even lost their real "on track" jobs because of their behavior online.
Adventure Journalism with Bryan Campbell
Bill Caswell sits down with automotive journalist Bryan Campbell to discuss Bryan's most recent adventure at the Mint 400 where he raced a ZeroOne Odyssey.
Later the conversation moves to a Ducati trip at Moto GP cIrcuit in Spain and what’s its like tp put a few hundred miles on a Shelby Cobra Kit Car around Los Angeles. Or what it's like to camp in Death Valley in a 4x4 camper van rented through an app. You'll hear about Bryan's experience driving a tank, and a bit about his life during social distancing and the pandemic.

Pull My Fun Stick!
This episode is a fun conversation with Bart Hockerman, better known as, “Bart from Pegasus” and James Oliver of OBP Pedals at the Performance Racing Industry Show. We talked about their roles in car culture, their jobs, travels, and car trips. But mostly it’s just a fun conversation about cars and all the ridiculous stuff we’ve seen and done over the years. Also, OPB just released its controversial, but awesome, hand brake called “The Fun Stick.” So there’s a bunch of childish jokes and fun in the episode.
Overlanding And Adventure With Bryon Dorr
Bryon Dorr caught the outdoor adventure addiction through whitewater kayaking, and worldwide adventures to remote places ensued. He crafted his own professional path as a photographer, journalist and marketing consultant in the automotive and outdoor industries, while full time overland traveling for nearly 8 years. You’ll usually find him out exploring by adventure motorcycle or 4x4, while seeking out opportunities to ski, mountain bike and kayak.
We sat down with Bryon to talk about his life on the road, the vehicles he built and used for his adventures, and learned some cool tricks for surviving in the wild with a truck. We also learned what not to do…. But mostly we learned how to explore life and create your own path.
Greg Salzillo: Winner Of The Hot Wheels Legends Tour
Greg Salzillo won the 2019 Hot Wheels Legends Tour with a 1957 Nash Metropolitan built by himself and his friend Dave Ford. The car is very custom yet maintains much of the old patina as well and now its being turned into an actual Hot Wheels car!
Greg and I talked at The Performance Racing Show about how he got into cars and why he built the Nash. We learned about the Hot Wheels Legends Tour and how he nearly lost the Nash before winning winning the El Segundo round of the tour and moving onto SEMA where he took first overall. We talked about hot rod and rat rod culture and what it takes to build your own custom vehicle. We also talked about where he gets his ideas and concepts from: “The metal kind of talks to you”
Greg also told us about his shop (and the fields of lavender) where he and Dave Ford build their cars like the 1933 Green Truck and the Model A that came before the Nash. Greg has built a lot of cars, but so far it’s been for fun and to inspire his kids to grow up and do the same. Now that his car is being turned into a Hot Wheels, he’ll get the chance to inspire even more kids.
Bill is always fun, informative and enjoyable to listen to. This podcast brings lots of interesting people from the automotive world to light.
