Introduction Welcome to this site. I am an auto racing historian and automotive writer from Walnut Creek, California. I was born into a racing family; my great-uncle was Ernie Triplett, the 1931 and 1932 AAA Pacific Southwest champion and 5-time Indianapolis 500 starter. I worked as a sprint car crew chief through the 2000’s before I decided that I did much better work behind the keyboard than spinning wrenches. I am a long-time member of the Yahoo! Racing History Group, and I serve on both the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame and the National Midget Auto Racing Hall of Fame induction committees. My articles have appeared in print in The Alternate and National Speed Sport News. I have 10 electronic auto racing history books available for purchase on I serve as the editor for The Checkered Past, the journal of U.S. auto racing history, an online collaborative journal for publication of articles by fellow racing historians. I also write and edit Triplett's Eye on Cars that follows interesting topics in the automotive industry.
Interests American open-wheel automobile racing
