how did you get your start??
I'm really interested in as to how some of you guys got your start in the off road field and what you did to get to where you are. Basically, what's your story? I ask cause I'm just starting in this field, well, trying to, but I don't know which way to go about starting, as I have little to no help, previous experiences, friends to learn from, ect. So I'm curious as to how some of you very knowledgeable guys got your start and how you progressed. I spend lots of time on RDC reading, go to uti, a good amount of work experience in the auto industry, and I'm very avid about learning more and doing more in off road as it has become one of my biggest passions now, I understand a good amount of what is being said on here and being discussed. I just don't know where or how to get my start. If anybody has some advice, pointers, stories and such for a newbie all would be greatly appreciated!

Re: how did you get your start??
Like anything else you have to start at the bottom in particular off road racing there is a ton of knowledge you can pick up as an intern at a shop. I would get a resuem together and look at the biggest shops in your area those which have been around the longest, then if they don't give you a shot then work your way through the smaller shops. I started out sweeping floors and cleaning parts and all other misc tasks for free, then very quickly you will meet other people in the business and network and branch out from there. One of the perks of interning at a shop is you put your self in the position to score parts, and even rides in race cars. The possibilities are end less and it all comes down to how disciplined you are and how far you want to go. And remember you are always replaceable so you constantly have to go above and beyond to show everyone your not just another kid looking to drive trophy trucks.
