Spencer Krick (firstname.lastname@example.org) knew from an early age he was destined to work in the automotive industry in one form or another. His father was a manager at Toyota’s USA Research and Development Center just outside of Phoenix, AZ. Spencer spent a lot of his youth in the pits of race tracks of all forms as his father competed in SCCA’s Formula Ford road racing, drove Endurance Go-Karts and late model stock cars.
Exposure to so many different types of racing gave Spencer a very balanced background and understanding of the mechanical challenges required to get the most from any automobile – racing or street. Growing up, Spencer had the kinds of jobs a lot of young men seeking grease under their fingernails pursue. Gas station attendant, automotive parts packing and shipping, Project Manager for an automotive testing and comparison company and a stint at Shelby American (the world famous Cobra and Mustang builder). Now his career appears to have taken its most natural course, combining his love of cars, computers and music to land him as the audio and video recording engineer and Co-Producer for Drivers Talk Radio and Internet.
Spencer served six months as Drivers Talk’s back-up Engineer and now he sits at the head of the mixing board and camera selector. His duties include offsite and event video recording for the Drivers Talk webpage and social media sites and, of course, editing and posting the daily and weekly recorded shows. Spencer works closely with the show’s Producer and Co-Host, Jay Dalton, and the show’s Host, Rick Titus. Spencer’s sharp wit is fast and dry and his insights on any number of automotive topics add to the enjoyment value of the show.
