Joe Spann
Chaplain
Joe's dad started taking him to car races when he was 14, about the time his friends started getting into motorcycles. So he tricked his parents into letting him get a bike. He got a job at a local bike shop that was into racing and that cemented it. Flat tracking was the local form of motorcycle racing, so that's what he started doing. He was exposed to roadracing much later, and enjoyed it enough to get involved as a chaplain.
