Aspiring motorsports journalist, Boston University class of 2013. This is a collection of my work starting with the 2012 motorsports season. Feel free to follow me on Twitter and be sure to read my most popular pieces.
Analyzing J.R. Hildebrand’s sophomore Indianapolis 500 effort with Panther Racing. A last-lap error gave away what would have been Hildebrand’s first IndyCar victory, but this year the young California native will push even harder to end Panther’s four-year streak of runner-up finishes in the sport’s most prominent race.
There’s an old racing adage that says “nobody remembers who finishes in second place.” J.R. Hildebrand would probably scoff at the notion. There’s an exception to the rule, he might argue, one that involves a last-lap pass or a really close finish or, heaven forbid, an accident coming out of the final turn to give the win away. But forgive him if he doesn’t want to talk about that last one.
