Agreed, that series was my favorite of your works! Hope you at least stick around in the Commentariat. We can make fun of all those doofuses that write for Jalopnik together! j/k

I still can’t thank you and Alanis both for taking on some of the motorsport coverage when I discovered that I just couldn’t take that anymore. You took it on with the kind of enthusiasm I’d lost, and I loved reading every second of it. This site will be worse off without you on it, but I expect good things in your Read more

Oh no!  There goes some of the best motorsport writing I could find on the internet.  At least for now.  But it certainly sounds like you’re making the right, if unfortunate (for us) decision!

Good luck. I know I was a bit (ok, sometimes a lot) harsh on you in your Jalopnik formative days, but you’ve grown more as a writer than any of your other colleagues on this site in my decade-ish of being a regular. Looking forward to that novel.

I’ve been lurking for years and rarely post, except for the random drunken post fest. I have enjoyed your articles, frequently when I’m done reading them and scroll up to see who wrote that. Best of luck to you!

Sorry to see you go Blackstock. I like your women in racing pieces. They were a lot of fun to learn about since no one gives them pages nowadays. Best of luck at school and your future endeavors. And remember, self first, everything else take a ticket.

Your blogs on women from motorsport’s history were incredibly fascinating. As a big rally fan, I knew of Michelle Mouton (forever my QUEEN) and, of course, many racing fans know of the ladies who competed at Indy, but I had no idea about most women you wrote about. Those blogs were seriously great reads. Read more

Damn. This is sincerely disappointing. I really enjoyed your knowledge of motorsports and car culture in general, to say nothing of the way you triggered neckbeard snowflakes simply by knowing FAR more about cars than they did. Read more
