EP 47 Amber Turner
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.
That girl in the Samurai! The amazing talented Amber Turner @daburrs slides into The Talent Tank on this, another, don't miss episode. She is the driver of the #468 in ULTRA4 Racing's Stock Class, an up and coming personality making waves. From her years growing up outdoor recreating, to her contagious enthusiasm that motivates all of those around her. Amber is the kind of person you can't help but measure up to, and know you are going to fall short on all counts. Her deep driven approach to philanthropy and volunteerism, like racing the EMC, then volunteering to work the 4400 race the next day sets a high bar. As an active member of Friends of Moonrocks, and Friends of the Rubicon, you can find her wheeling, challenging herself, and working with diligence to increase the conservation of our environment. It should be mentioned she's a roll model for young women in the trades, as a welder and fabricator she looked up to Jessi Combs the way the next generation is looking up to her. Having just started writing the next chapter in her life, she is the newest fabricator at Bomber Fabrication alongside current reigning King of the Hammers Champion Randy Slawson. This woman is someone you're going to be hearing good things about for years to come, so you better start here, and now.

After the Checkered Flag-
The Rubicon Trail Foundation is a federally recognized, non-profit organization dedicated to the future health of the Rubicon Trail.
Prior to 2000, the trail was cleaned occasionally but large maintenance projects were rarely done. In 2000, the trail was threatened with possible closure on the Tahoe side. This threat spawned the current Friends of the Rubicon, which mobilized over 200 volunteers to keep the trail open.
