A play on the triumph and losses in performance and life.  The Talent Tank podcast will navigate the inner workings of lifestyle, lives, family, teams, careers, programs, and technology in and around the offroad motorsports industry.  What breeds success with your Talent Tank on full, failures when its on empty.  From the journey to the Starting Line to take that Green Flag, on to exploring trials and tribulations on and off the track in pursuit of victorious achievement and the Checkered Flag.

He's about the closest thing ULTRA4 Racing has to Captain America.  On this Episode hailing from Olympic Valley, Tahoe, Reno, Haines, Alaska by way of Pennsylvania we take a dive into the psyche of the man behind the mustache, Tom Wayes @twayes, driver of the #321 4400 car, macho man of the ski's, and slinger of the chainsaw from the tallest trees in the Sierra Nevada's.  When you don't find him jumping out of helicopters, or playing Paul Bunyon, you can find him exploring the backcountry on bike, sled, or his trusty Raptor.  We get a look at what has made the Wayes name always apart of the podium conversations surrounding 4400.  How he's been successful, how he's dealt with shortcomings, wrecks, injuries, getting older, and keeping the eye on the prize to live out "I wanna be 60 years old, Crusty, Salty, doing this exact thing." With a sweet/easy recipe for a Baja Fog thrown in for good measure.

After the Checkered Flag-
SEABA has access to terrain from Petersburg, Alaska to Haines, Alaska. With a heli skiing area over 250 nautical miles from the southern reaches of Southeast Alaska all the way to the British Columbia / Yukon border. They have three distinct staging areas Haines, Juneau and Petersburg.  Each port has distinct weather influences and terrain options, allowing clients the best opportunity to crush powder.  With such a vast area to operate they can move operations to areas with the most favorable Heli Ski conditions.
The tree line in Southeast Alaska (2,500 to 3,000ft) is higher than any other Alaskan heli skiing destination, giving clients access to epic tree lines even when the peaks are fogged in. SEABA provides everything from mellow rollers to spicy steeps. Rest assured there is heli skiing terrain for all ability levels. http://www.seaba-heli.com/
