With this vast range of racing experiences plus his training in science, engineering and mechanical technology, allows him to have a great understanding of all the riding techniques and dynamics behind them. This gives him the ability to clearly teach and explain, in-depth, all the techniques and the science of them to students from a variety of backgrounds.
Track Safety & Design
Because of Ed's vast experience in the racing business as a racer, race official and teacher, he has a valuable and extensive insight to proper track layout. Ed has seen first hand what works and what doesn't in track designs. Ed was even referred to as "the King of Track Layout" by WERA. Ed's back ground in Science, Physics and his corporate job title "Engineer of Metrology" gives him good understanding of the features required to make a track safer. Over the years Ed has designed, consulted and/or evaluated several tracks such as:
He has consulted with numerous track owners, managers and event promoters concerning up-grades such as Nashville Super Speedway, Bermuda International Raceway, Atlanta Motor Speedway, Pocono International Speedway, N.O. Problem Raceway, St. Louis International Speedway, and Road Atlanta. In 1983, Ed wrote the book "Features of Race Track Design".
