What are your favorite non-racing hobbies?

Working on the race cars, mostly. I also love hunting in-season. Me and dad both went up to Maine this year, and we both ended up getting deer within the first three days we were up there. That was pretty special for both of us, especially the first time going up. I spend a lot of time working in the garage as well, and I also play basketball.
