We have been following the Grid Life series, especially their GLTC series for the last few years and since our schedules don't align this year, we thought we would interview several of the drivers, teams, and hosts for the next few episodes.

Tiffany Kelly and Justin Kelly are both top drivers in the GLTC series and have competed as Team Kelly Racing. In addition, they have a racing school to teach other drivers and also race shifter karts to further hone their skills. During this episode, we go over their racing history, including what is GLTC for our listeners who may not be familiar. The Kelly's also have a fantastic YouTube channel where they go over many aspects of their racing lives and help show you how they do what they do. They were even nice enough to stay on and go through our Fast and Furious Storytime questions. We wish them both good luck in this weekend's GLTC race at Pikes Peak.

In this issue of Dominating with Dawson, we start with what may be Bill’s dumbest intro ever and then work our way onto the topic of how to exploit chaos on the track to help you improve on the performance of the car and team. Ben even has a bunch of examples of what he is referring to and how he routinely uses these areas to gain an advantage or pass a few of his fellow competitors.
