Luke is a salesman at the Tire Rack. Long ago, while ordering tires, I met Luke.  We’ve been friends ever since!  In the early ’00’s, He built this well thought out and clean 300ZX. Tire Rack is a benefactor of Gingerman Raceway and through that relationship, Tire Rack employees have access to open track time at no cost. Needless to say, this Z spent quite a bit of time tearing up the road course.
