Cars Yeah with Mark Greene

Michael Allen earned his Ph.D. in Psychology in 1986. But the title Michael is most proud of is “Car Nut.” He has been an automotive enthusiast his entire life. After purchasing a Porsche Boxster he attended his first track day and was hooked. Through the years Michael found himself frustrated with the lack of non-competitive High Performance Drivers Education content in car magazines. In December of 2013, Michael and his wife Ziva decided there was a missing niche for like-minded driving enthusiasts and decided to take on the challenge of filling that gap. They launched Auto Track Monthly, an on line magazine that is your one-stop-click source for track day and high performance driving information.
