Riding shotgun with Speed Stick driver Cole Whitt and Playboy’s April Rose at Talladega

paul-eide-april-rose-cole-whitt-talladega

Confidence opens doors that nothing else can. But confidence can also be misplaced. How do you know if the shirt you’re wearing is completely ridiculous until you actually wear it outside the house? Thanks to Speed Stick, at least I had confidence in my underarm scent.

But confidence was definitely not lacking for driver Cole Whitt. Even though Front Row Motorsports is at a distinct disadvantage, operating on one-eighth the budget of its competitors and Whitt’s highest previous finishing position this season a modest 22nd, Whitt was ready.

A Top 20 finish at Talladega would’ve meant a lot, as Cole explains in our interview below, shot immediately before the race. But Whitt was able to #DefyTheDoubt and lead the entire field with under 40 laps remaining en route to his best performance this season. Speed Stick is all about giving you confidence for the moment you shut down the naysayers, as Whitt did finishing a career-best 13th in the race.

I got a little excited during my interview, and it isn’t completely my fault – there’s so much energy at a NASCAR race, it permeates the grounds and is as real as the guy with the Dale Jr. shirt on next to you.

Pizza Hut unveils new navigation technology to follow order from Hut to home

For anyone who has ever uttered the words “where’s my pizza?” – Pizza Hut has the answer, thanks to its new pizza navigation system that will debut in Dallas next month.

The new technology, unique to Pizza Hut, will allow customers to track the journey of their order from “Hut to home” – similar to an Uber experience – including the exact road coordinates of the delivery vehicle and a photo of the driver who will soon knock on the door.

Originally implemented in Israel and Russia late last year, Pizza Hut’s pizza navigation technology will first be available in the Dallas market (home to Pizza Hut’s global headquarters) before being rolled out nationwide later this year, allowing customers to plan for meal time while Pizza Hut simultaneously manages its fleet of drivers to ensure an efficient ordering process.

  

Interview with Duracell’s Kevin Jorgeson, first to free climb El Capitan in Yosemite National Park

kevin-jorgeson-duracell-el-capitan

It may not rain, it may not be cold or windy…but it always gets dark. In the outdoors, light is essential. Experts trust Duracell Quantum to provide dependable power in the dark because it lasts longer in 99% of devices.

During Kevin Jorgeson’s free climb of El Capitan, he trusted Duracell Quantum to power him through the night so he could climb in the dark and be one step closer to reaching the top.

We spoke to Kevin about his epic 19-day climb, the wear and tear on his body and his partnership with Duracell.

How are your hands? I’m worried about your hands.

I wish I could say you could still see the battle scars, but unfortunatel,y they are all healed. I was actually quite sad when they healed because it was the last physical remnant and evidence of the climb, you know? Now it is literally all memory.

How did you partner with Duracell? 

I’m pretty selective on all my partnerships and I try to work with companies that I am already using their products. So that includes my climbing shoes, my harnesses, the equipment we use to stay on the wall, and that goes for batteries too. So when we started this conversation, it was a natural fit. I had been using Duracell for years, we even had them up on the wall (of El Capitan). It was something that already existed, and it just meant that now we’d be able to tell that story.

What does “free climbing” mean? Does that mean you walk up to a mountain and climb it, with nothing?

No, the word “free” kind of messes with people’s perception. Really, it’s climbing as you would imagine climbing — it’s just climbing. 99% of climbers are free climbing. Meaning we climb, but we use equipment to catch us if we fall. And we fall a lot. It took us six years to put this thing together. Six years of a lot more failure than success. It wasn’t like we just walked up and climbed this thing. We started working together on this in 2009.

Why did it take so long for someone to be able to free climb El Capitan?

It’s just so hard, man — it’s so hard. The biggest day of the climb, distance wise, was day one, and that was only 500 feet. Every day after that was 200 feet. Our best case scenario for this climb was 12 days. But I got stuck for a week in one spot. So that’s why it took 19 days.

One of the hardest things about climbing the Dawn Wall, and it sounds lame, is the skin on your fingertips. You cut your fingers on the holes that you’re grabbing and you have to put tape on to cover your cuts. The problem is, there is a big difference between calloused skin and tape. We’re climbing as hard as you can climb on vertical granite. Every little bit counts. So when you have two taped fingers, it totally changes your ability to climb. And that’s what happened. I kept going through this cycle where I would rest until one of the two would heal, and then I would climb, then I would re-split the fingers, rest for a couple more days and try again. It was the most mentally taxing climbing experience I’ve ever had. You have to turn the disappointment of failure into motivation, all over again. And that’s a hard way to go back and forth. And all this stuff is happening at night, which made Duracell so clutch.
