I am Vice President of Marketing & Public Relations at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. I have held a wide range of PR and marketing positions, mostly with high technology companies in Silicon Valley and Research Triangle Park. While at Nortel I arranged a sponsorship with Scott Goodyear at both Treadway Racing and Panther. At Treadway we also sponsored Arie Luyendyk for one very important race - the 1997 Indy 500 where we finished one-two; that was a blast! I have long been a racing fan and I love the history of the sport so much I created a website, www.firstsuperspeedway.com where you can find more pre-1920 primary research than any other on-line resource. My wife and I have raised two daughters both diligently studying in universities.
