010: First Race Weekend at Virginia International Raceway with American Endurance Racing

Fasten your seatbelt and ride along as we take you on a high-octane journey with professional race car driver Johan Schwartz and the All-Star Racing Team at the Virginia International Raceway. Experience the pulse-pounding thrill of my first full race with American Endurance Racing, the strategic decisions we made against zippier cars, and our sweet second-place victory.

Beyond the track, I caught up with Corey Freedman from Autometrics, the man who sold me my M4. We took a trip down memory lane, reminiscing about his racing career and the serendipitous series of events that led me to acquire his car. We also get under the hood of my businesses, American Landscape Structures and Jim Adams Consulting. Buckle up for our weekend recap, packed with business insights, camaraderie, and all the action from the fast lane.

In this episode, you will hear about:

  • Discussion on the team’s strategy against faster cars and preparations for the upcoming race at Rhode Atlanta. 
  • Overview of my business ventures, American Landscape Structures and Jim Adams Consulting. 
  • Detailed account of my first full race with American Endurance Racing, including the practice sessions, qualifying, and the race day itself. 
  • Importance of mentorship and coaching in both racing and business.
