He shared how he got into racing in an interview with "My passion for cars started around the same time—when I was 10 or 11 years old—and it was a sort of mix of the two. My dad is a Corvette fanatic, and when he got to the point in his life where he could afford one he bought a C5 in Florida and organized a cross-country trip that ended back at our home in Nevada City, California. Along the way, we made sure to stop by the Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, Kentucky, and that's when I realized that cars were something special. In a nutshell, my passion was ignited by that trip and by his passion for Corvettes. Shortly after that, I began karting and paying more attention to Formula 1, so that's when the racing side of things began to develop."


Maria Ho


Pro poker player, Maria Ho, competed on TAR in its 15th season. In this Instagram post, she revealed that she believes in having a structured schedule. "Weekends might mean time off for most, but for #poker players, that's usually the prime time to grind! Sundays generally consist of the biggest buy-ins and guarantees of the online poker week, so establishing a routine before a long online poker session can help you stay focused, energized, and on top of your game. Don't underestimate the power of a structured approach!"

I would take class for 8 hours, go home and practice until 2 in the morning. When you have drive and determination you can pass up a lot of people that are 'talented'."
