    BEHIND THE WHEEL FEATURE WITH CASEY CRONIN

    There comes a time when you meet someone great, someone with knowledge, kindness and compassion. Upon meeting
    this person, you know that this person can never be forgotten.




    I have come across a handful of people since entering the pro-touring scene in 2008 that have remained close friends,
    but there are only a few I allow in the passenger seat of my truck. I have always been a person that will jump in
    someone elseís vehicle, observe how they drive and then apply certain aspects of their driving once I climb back into
    the driver seat. When you find a good instructor, one who just clicks with you, it is hard to have anyone else in that
    position. Luckily one of those incredible instructors is based right here in Southern California.





    When I speak of racing instructors, wandering minds might question what professional driver I am speaking of? Others
    might assume that I am speaking of someone that has been a long time member of the pro-touring community, won
    several events and races competitively attending several events throughout the year. In this case, this driver not only
    has a long history in racing, his skills behind the wheel have made an impact on over 2,500 CHP cadets during his
    years in the Academy.





    For many of us when I say the words CHP or for non-Californiaís maybe Highway Patrol, I bet more than half of you
    cringe. Yet, how cool would it be to work for the CHP as a driving instructor? By now some may have realized who I am
    talking about, but for those who still do not know, the man behind the uniform is no other than Casey Cronin.
