Hondo Miller and the Born Again Blazer!

Feature Interview:

Hondo Miller from Laid-Back

While we’re in between events we wanted to present as many feature interviews as possible for you this season, and this time we’re proud to have Hondo Miller from Laid-Back on the show. As some of you already know well for this 2022 season Laid-Back is the official shirt sponsor for OSUSC. As a result ALL COMPETITORS receive a sweet shirt from Laid-Back!

We asked Hondo on to share the story of his company as well as his Born Again ’69 Blazer (pictured above). Be prepared to be amazed. This guy is cool chill, and humble….and he and his family spend their free time hot lapping 20 year old Mazda Miata’s!

I truly enjoyed this interview – I’m sure you will too. Thank you so much, Hondo!

p.s. Jimi did try to join this interview but wasn’t able. He was on a boat and was fishing, then the rain came up, and he bugged out when they saw lightening. I’m happy to report he is fine but have no idea how to the fishing went. ;)
