Many of the marshals reading this blog already know Jim. If you’ve volunteered any of the major events in the US including Formula 1, IndyCar, IMSA Tudor United SportsCar or American Le Mans Series before that, you’ve heard him on the radio from Race Control. Some may remember Jim from his chief starter days with Champ Car / CART, as this Motorsport.com article captions he was “CART’s most visible official outside of CEO…” But besides being an accomplished marshal he’s also an amazing artist with a focus on motorsports and that’s what I wanted to share with everyone reading this regardless where you are in the world.

You can buy copies of his paintings as Lithographs and Posters, or Giclées Prints that are very reasonably priced through his web site:
Of all the personalities I’ve met in this hobby, I have genuine admiration and respect for Jim. I really look up to him as a cool, calm and collected voice on a network when all hell is breaking loose or we’re dying of boredom on the track. And though we’ve never really communicated directly, he seems really down to earth at all the events that I’ve had the pleasure of working with him, from races at Laguna Seca in California to COTA in Texas and Sebring in Florida.
