Contact Vito

The first NASCAR race I attened was in 1982, at the Champion Spark Plug 400 at Michigan International Speedway – I still have the 8mm film of me cruising around on my Big Wheel to prove it. In those days, the infield grass was brown, and it sat maybe 50,000 people. Even then, it still took three hours to get out of Brooklyn after the race. My next race wasn’t until 1989 at MIS, when I made the decision to elect Mark Martin as my favorite driver. After enduring nearly two decades of peaks and valleys, highs and lows, heartache and heartbreak, I have earned the right to deem myself, “Bitter Martin Fan”. Journalists are expected to be unbiased and impartial; I am not.

I graduated from Grand Valley State University in 2001 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration, with a Major in Marketing. I don’t just write about racing, I actually participate as well. During the spring, summer, and fall months, I enjoy competing in bracket racing at The Mid-Michigan Motorplex, and the occasional autocross event at Grattan Raceway, one of the tracks that Car & Driver often uses to evaluate performance cars. I am somewhat capable with tools, however after stripping the drain plug out of my Kawasaki KDX200 while attempting the daunting task of an oil change when I was 16, it became apparent to me that there is a reason today that the drivers are typically not expected (or allowed) to wrench on their racecars.

Q & A With Vito Pugliese:

Name One Person Or Thing You Can’t Stand. : Really nice, hot girls with these dopey looking loser guys. It’s an epidemic that is sweeping the nation. This aggression will not stand.

What Is Your Favorite Movie? : “The Big Lebowski” Also, all of the “Rocky” movies. (Except for Rocky III. The beach scene when Rocky and Apollo start hugging and frollicing in the water was a little weird.)

Who Is Your Favorite Mucial Artist(s)? : Alice In Chains (aka, The Best Band Ever) Layne Staley – RIP.

What Is Your Favorite Racing Moment? : Listening to Richard Petty win number 200 on MRN with my dad while driving in our ’69 Plymouth Valiant.

Who Is Your Favorite Cartoon Character? : Master Shake – Aqua Teen Hunger Force. It’s as if somebody drew me…with a straw jammed in my head.

Vito’s Favorite Non-Racing Sites He Recommends

  • The Onion
  • The Drudge Report Matt Drudge’s very popular news site (He’s like the Jayski of News)
  • The Phat Phree Very Ophensive, very phunny
  • GlobalSecurity.org If you like pictures of B-52’s (and lets face it, who doesn’t), this is the place.
  • Top Gear The best car review site and show that you’ve probably never heard of.
