About Mike Collins

Hi! I’m Mike Collins!

I’m the founder and managing partner of MEATHEAD Racing, one of the largest amateur motorsports teams in the United States. I’ve raced at every level of the sport and in 2016 I competed in the Battery Tender Global Mazda MX-5 Cup presented by BF Goodrich Tires. I’m also past president and CEO of SCCA Pro Racing, the professional racing division of the Sports Car Club of America.

I’ve been an active SCCA member for 15 years, serving as a member of the Spec Miata Advisory Committee, a National Scrutineer (2009 Runoffs Line Chief or Spec Miata), the Washington, DC Region Licensing Chair, and a Competition Committee Member.

While dedicated to the motorsports industry, I’ve also spent 20 years running some of the country’s largest trade shows and special events at Hargrove, Inc., including multiple presidential inaugurations and the Washington Auto Show. In 2011, I helped launch NexxtShow and served as its Senior Vice President.

I have two other blogs that I hope you’ll equally enjoy:
