Start Wrenching | Introduction

Scotty G getting it done!

When I was driving full time I would receive all kinds of questions from fans but there was one that always popped up:

How do I get into racing?

The question would come from all types of people from those who just wanted to do track days and those who wanted to work on a race team.  At first, I would do my best to explain where to start based off of my own experience and then I started asking the mechanics, truck drivers and engineers how they got started.  It eventually raised a question in my own head:

What is a Race Car? Introduction

Sure, a race car is a high-performance automobile that is designed to reach it’s maximum capabilities as quickly as possible.  But is that the full story?

The industry and sport have done a poor job of explaining itself over its 100+ year history.  What is the actual purpose of motor racing?  Why do we race around “wasting” vast amounts of fuel, rubber and other materials and fluids just to beat a bunch of other people doing the same thing?  What benefit to human civilization do motorsports provide?

We will start with the car and try to elaborate and simplify what’s going on to the best of our ability.
