568: Sam Moses is an author, was a journalist with Sports Illustrated for 18 years and was races too.
Sam Moses is a journalist and author who began writing as a seaman apprentice on a Navy cruiser in the South China Sea. Two days after his discharge he was on the Isle of Man writing about motorcycles. He filed race reports from the Mojave Desert which landed him a job as Motorsports Writer for Sports Illustrated for 18 years. He began racing in 1965 at Watkins Glen on a motorcycles and today he runs in vintage events in his Oldsmobile Cutlass, the “Skoll Bandit”, the same racecar in his book Fast Guys Rich Guys And Idiots , originally released in 1985, which he recently remastered for release. I caught up with Sam at the Pacific Northwest Historic races where I enjoyed watching him mix it up on the track.
