Brant James

Brant 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.

The next frontier is the legal sports betting industry in the United States, which he covers as a features and enterprise reporter. Sports betting is about numbers, but it's also about people. The story is where they intersect.
