I’m sure Chem 101 isn’t the same
without him.
Bill Greenlaw
:
Amazing. He looks much as I remember
him from 1977. A bit older yes, but that sparkle of
excitement is still evident, even in a picture.

Q: Why did you decide to start a blog?
A:
I slowly became aware that my adventures and
racing had quite a large following. I wanted to give
back a little to everyone that had helped me get
where I was. I also created it to help gain myself
and my sponsors some exposure!

A:
The highlights and results of my racing career.
Q:What is the best thing about blogging?
A:
Being able to share your experiences with a
broad spectrum of followers!

have for those interested
in blogging?

It isn't Facebook. Only
post a couple of significant
photos or videos at a time.

follow?

Some of the blogs of other racers and the
companies that I race for.
Q: Anything else you’d like to add about social

you are doing!
