Autobahn Podcast Featuring Brian Kubinski

“What started it all…I grew up 2 houses from Dale Coyne,” Brian Kubinski.

Founding member Brian Kubinski grew up 2 houses away from the Indy Racing Legend Dale Coyne. During this show we get to hear how Brian started an amazing racing career. Brain tells the story of how he went from cleaning Indy car parts, to mowing Dale’s yard, and finally to becoming a winning driver in everything from karts, open wheel cars, and stock cars. My local mechanic used to race with Brian, and I have heard a lot of stories about his career, so I was very excited to finally sit down and hear his story first-hand. This story will motivate you to get out on the track, so come join the fun!

In addition to an incredible racing career, Brian is one of our founding members. So let’s welcome Brian Kubinski to the Autobahn Country Club PodCast!

Attention in the Paddock

  • We have begun the process of sealcoating the entire paddock area and the road to the main gate. We are dividing this project into sections and we are asking you to please be aware of changing parking areas and traffic flows while this is in progress. On Monday, the main road from the circle to the front gate is scheduled to be done. To accommodate anyone that is coming in on Monday, we will be opening the new kart track gate for your entrance. Those who need to go to the main paddock, or the north buildings can use the south track.  You will enter at the gate at turn 7 and get around the work zone.
  • Sport Bike Track Time will be here all weekend so please be careful in the paddock.
