In this episode, Jake talks to stage rally co-driver Ryan Dunham.
For years, Jake has loved watching stage rally highlights wherever they can be found here in the states. He's never really met anyone who is deeply involved in the sport. Fast forward to a listener message on Facebook, and he got to talking with Ryan Dunham, and stage rally co-driver.
Ryan graciously agreed to come on the show and talk about his experience in stage rally. Co-driving is a lot more than just saying, "Left 3 into crest, caution keep right over crest. 150 into jump into right 6." In most forms of motorsport, the driver or crew chief can be looked at kind of like a quarterback on a football field. In rally, the co-driver is the one calling the shots and making sure the entire team works like a well-oiled machine.
