Comment From Zach

I believe my step dad told me he saw a TV show of you when you were in Oregon testing out some car? I cannot remember what car it was, or what the TV show was called, but I know it was a few months ago, and you were in Oregon near Multnomah fall.

12:35
justin bell:

It was a great new show called Shut up and Drive on SPEED – they are still replaying it

Driving and representing ebay Motors in racing was pretty cool as well – people hadnt seen them do that before – it was myself in WC – Cary Hart in Trucks etc

Man I wish I had a car like that! But I can’t even imagine the insurance cost for a 16 year old driving a Mustang. Haha.
