Welcome to the Legend of the Death Race Podcast, where you’ll hear the legends of past Death Racers, new and old. Ronald Tortola hails from Texas and was a life long athlete who came across endurance racing during the brief period of Death Race's absence. Participating in Hurricane Heats and Agoge, he thought he was prepared for the challenge of the Death Race. As he would soon discover, there is no race like The Death Race. Listen as Roland talks about the training, the tricks he learned from past death racers; and how, no matter what year you race in, that nothing quite prepares anyone for the adventure that becomes a legend.

Welcome to the Legend of the Death Race Podcast, where you’ll hear the legends of past Death Racers, new and old. In the thirty-third episode of the podcast, we connect with Morgan McKay, the Canadian woman who made my first Death Race finish possible. Morgan and I take a trip down memory lane and reminisce about the 2012 Death Race and share how we both helped each other to continue racing even when everyone else was literally telling us to quit. In the Death Race, not giving up and doing whatever you're directed to do is essential to finishing. We discuss how Morgan started with a not really wanting to do a Spartan Race to chasing down the most difficult races like World's Toughest Mudder, the Spartan Ultra, and of course, the Death Race. We look at how she tackled the race then, and how her strategy has evolved today, including the ultimate weapon for any endurance race, smiling.
