She's the general manager of dirt fish racing school ends the call to Washington good morning Molly. Yeah joining us is we look at the issues that affect us here at home and our community and across the nation is just a wall made it's easy to imagine the summit and the wind terror rushing water of the falls beautiful forestry. Sort of the quintessential western Washington life I had no idea that just beyond the polls you can learn to drive an off road race car there's really is something for everybody around here. What makes dirt there's extra cool is their commitment to giving back to the community through charity. So I guess Molly let's start from the top peer toes a little about the history of the school maybe your involved and how you take intimate. Certain apps let me ask Victor Trisha and her around tenth 2000 patent at I. An amazing guy who is actually an aviation and they keep that they stand at a rally he actually. I'm a born and raised the current declined in England and I probably know rally it's huge overhang here and it's not so huge over here in the United States. And when he can get excited you open a rally Walsh and I've been here about my ears now and I are getting it. A little interesting artifacts Emily entered the school and ask you this is pleased. Yeah I. And I am and so I can pick a fight that and you're gonna get hurt haptic class and and then went back to class here. I just how QB and alt I cat killer carried it by now I think he can get any plan that when you were church you know rally got such as they played so I. I'm yuck factor and from the bottom and then over the last year and a generally miniature. Now I know that there. Are different things you're preparing people for with the school to help us understand the difference between the two race car on like a paved racetrack and what a rally driver does please. Absolutely they are still 100% of our panel breakthrough battery track are generally has turned back out if they left an act. And the drivers are alone. And in the car and I can he let you know can chat to each other drivers and other card. Spain tie and they're reaching reached against the clock against each other at the mean time I'm implement your different drivers but you know we'll kick churn or church right are. Our region and like action which rallying and you break point eight appointee so it took one car. AJ. At a time and other you know their windows that time until one Carlo couch and then they'll get like a cure three minute primetime announcement how can someone that the market to break. And in the second carolco. And and the car actually also have to beat street legal advocates know a lot of people are very surprised by that but the current bill which ran that time down you know local growth and and things like that there's some time. People are are pretty surprised and I don't not till the fear I have over an entire weekend for the time by about six. 200 mile than just one day is rally cars are reaching against the clocking it going 12030. Can't bring about an hour on who lose their ad on third lighting gravel I. No harm you never know you're gonna gash. So Mac and you also how to coach I heard that telling you. In all of that that wrote the regretting giving cheap now but they're called an all over the track car like a normal robbery curry have to try and you know Eric higher than anything like that in Scarlett. They rally to cure on Madonna changed and you get a flat you have to pull over and even your character ever changed the tire right and and Larry keep gone out. I suspect so much. And now people come out here to the school just maybe take a couple our class have to fold they may be a program or something like that. Well people are learning these crazy skills on and dirt mud and on asphalt and everything. And they transferred to the streets of Seattle never ridden places where we live. Absolutely actually hit very surprising you know we get. We get nominated I can't let it started thinking you're go that a permanent collection at eighty child and rallied well happily it back. What we teach the Bill Bradley teacher over a car control and so even an increment weather conditions think about how much acclaimed grey and wet the wet slippery certain is that cash and that I. I'm Anheuser claiming he'd pretend experience you know we. We do that and that. Alex heard Caron got older get back. You know you're currently mechanic and other little bit erratic shall we do that over and over and teach you how to handle a car or they are not happening already expect them cute so we can't turn the vehicles vision you know. Left at breaking down into the car and all these different things that each each absolutely chamber at a car. Now onto a personal example my wife didn't drive for twenty years living in big cities she never needed to and now with a new baby she is a driver full time and I there's some trepidation there. How could a program like this help her be a better driver for my own knowledge with. Well I think a lot of time and I know people are all their little nervous on the road they're Keppinger Travers that it's not so comfortable behind the reality kind of how that. You know eat when you're on actually leaving Arlington so helpful where you are typical looking out girls you know I don't like yank I touched it shipbuilding and competent on the front of the building which. It's building that ability that they look like you have the Filipino ever gonna teach you how to how to handle a car in any any condition and we're gonna get you back competent that you know it when you're out on the. You act different that that aren't so confident. Driver especially with and you let alone we've had lots of moms that compare one hot spark that runs each she had cheated. The election monitor pressure unbelievably amniotic or heard how markkaa venture market jitters yet it's gone now. Really help. Cool well in the Sicilian sides I wrote a little detail about to your facility has a tyrant to twin peaks. Yet the bad. Yet that and we you know we see the content kicker it's you know the chance that they show we need power and their speakers a year people come and every single day from all over the world to come either check station so we articulate he would attend a route where I had Carter's. I'm what actually what picture that you went on the show I actually never in the show I'm learning that mark speakers tenants and them and absolutely without a I'm about the it's actually where are amazing pat pat. Rock star except instead they'll ask her that and that has the athletic picture and act like with. That's fantastic OK so now onto the community portion of this is I think this is Sony you work with a handful of specific nonprofits around our area and a lot of businesses that never do anything outwardly connecting to the community I mean the man make a donation or something but. Why is it important for your team to beast giving back to be so involved. You know on athlete and it's just because we care exit because in our entire entire school and who we are what we do you. It hit and any way shape or form can make it entrenched and we are to make a difference that you elect somebody that aren't a great and they touched the experience I'm gonna they've never ever experienced before and I'll. Our Africa and. And it eats. I the company has prepared that that we can helped. Individual parts and labor organization and you know that that need help why you know why not rally about so. Very much tech community sport admin about supporting each other through. You know hard times an amazing time and it is accurate that just simply because we care. So really caught my attention I'm I work a lot with Seattle humane and that's one of the non profits that you work with what a good one of the now profits that you work with and how did you choose each of them. What's important to you. Then you've got to pitch in boundaries and on black every portrait over the last couple years now looking at a and Redmond went belly area. They aren't bringing a nonprofit work where. I'm with that trend all well people that cut traumatic brain injured or are action picture oh. And so with Turkish involvement Thatcher and that we have other hand can chime in and are automatic. You Riviera Villa where we can actually make it so that they can you know they can take you can't carry such an international boundary they do exactly that they touch people's boundaries. No other you know their limit until their cash to their to their limit and it's they're finding that people that we're told that they email would have limited mobility of luck finding that there how to it's much more. Our ability QB who live more independently and have more marched more at my home alto. That's Atlantic Canada patient about it much and come back and another on Bartlett and I come attached a local prospect that after it and helped. Gambling is my children that may have. Learning disabilities. And that maybe don't have the financial assistance Q2 to prepare can Leach coached pediatric therapy and early learning at an early crack the by that and that and that talk on the valley at the fox. And then also eat like immediate stokes. There when we care deeply about it because you know that would rally in the latter are eternally young and life you know we wanted to elect.
