Name: Nate Conley
Vehicle: 2004 Subaru Impreza WRX STi
Website: Coming Soon!
Why do you race?
The question is "why not?" What do you think of your racing career?
There hasn't been much of a career. We have been overlooked at most events and are always surprising people. It's fun being the lowest budget team beating cars that cost 10x more. We look at motorsports as a hobby that we love to do, not as a career. If we look at it as a career, then it takes all the fun out of it!
What does the start of your day entail?
I work in our family construction company and every day is different. It ranges from being at the job sites to being in the office.
How much time do you dedicate to practice between events?
It's hard to find the time when you work in construction, but lately it's been about 2 to 3 times a week to get ready for X Games. In the past it was hard to find a way to practice for Rally Racing so I tried to race everything possible, from Stage Rally, Rallycross, Autocross, Hill Climbs, to Rallysprints!
What do you do to stay in shape during the season?
I like to work out as much as possible and go on bike rides with my wife and son. We also focus on eating healthy. Where do you practice when at home?
For dirt we go to CORE (Colorado Off-Road Extreme) and for asphalt we go to PPIR (Pikes Peak International Raceway).
Any funny road trip stories from your career?
I can't think of a time that was more funny than the other. We just have a lot of great memories traveling across the country as a family.
Who do you look up to in your sport and why?
Tanner Foust. He is down-to-earth and just a good guy. He doesn't have to act like he's someone other than who he is.
Is there any other sport you actively participate in?
Not really. I try to compete in triathlons when there is free times to train.
Are there any sponsors or specific people out there you would like to thank for helping you get to the races?
Mostly my family and Revolutions Performance. Revolutions has become a second family to us.
If you were trapped on a deserted island and could only bring one movie and one CD, what would they be?
I would probably prefer to have nothing and enjoy the peace and quiet.
What would be on the plate of your last meal ever?
Favorite video game?
Your biggest pet peeve(s)?
People who think they know and can do everything!
What celebrity would you most like to be your wife and why?
I already have her here as my wife!
What music do you listen to?
One item you never leave the house without.
My wedding ring.
Favorite sports team?
None. What's one thing you loved as a child but hate as an adult?
What’s your favorite thing to do in your free time?
Hanging out with my wife and son.
