Late last year I recieved an opportunity that I thought was pretty neat. By just knowing a few of the right people I got a job with, which is owned by USA Today, as a content writer specializing in motorsports. Well, this morning I got a phone call around 10:30 am from my editor telling me to go to and click on the travel section. On the front page was my story: 10 Best Places to Watch a NASCAR Race.

So yeah, ole S1appy's moving up in the world.
