He was driven by fun, speed, and competition of any kind.

For Laramie it was the fascination of how things work and confidence of figuring it all out; acquired from time spent in the garage taking things apart and putting them back together again. He was always finding ways to make things better, faster, and stronger.

While in El Paso, he made a great group of friends that shared his love for speed and turning wrenches.
