James has covered motorsports, the National Hockey League, Major League
Baseball and made sundry other interesting jaunts in a career with SI.com, ESPN.com,
USA TODAY and the Tampa Bay Times. He’s ridden up Mt. Washington in a rally car
with Travis Pastrana, walked from the barns to the paddock with Kentucky Derby
horses at Churchill Downs and landed on an aircraft carrier with Dale Earnhardt
Jr. Somebody had to do it.
