ake a Moment to Meet the Folks that make Queers4Gears Possible
Michael T. Myers – Founder, Chief Wise-Ass, Host of “Out of the Tunnel”
Michael grew in Spartanburg, SC – home of NASCAR legends David Pearson, Bud Moore, and Cotton Owens. He now lives in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Myers founded Queers4Gears in September of 2009 as a daily online resource for gay and lesbian NASCAR fans. Each week his “catty” Gaynalysis of each race details all of the drama between the
drivers divas on and off the track. He also co-hosts the “Out of the Tunnel” podcast with Hannah Rickards.
Myers is a member of the National Motorsports Press Association and has covered races in NASCAR, Indy Car, NHRA and at local short tracks since 2009.
Michael enjoys long golf cart rides along the beach and buring trash in his back yard. He can lift a diecast car with one arm and loves baby seals.
Ross Bynum – Indycar Contributor
Ross began contributing to the Q4G team in 2011 as the site expanded its coverage into Indycar. He provides coverage of Indycar news, a Gaynalysis of each event, and authors As the Firestone Turns – a weekly recap of off-track happenings in the world of Indycar including driver interviews and Twitter tidbits.Ross, a resident of Houston, TX, is originally from the small town of Soso, MS – home of…not much. Bynum, a former go-kart racer, grew up around the dirt tracks of Mississippi watching his uncles race which cultivated a passion for cars and racing.
In his free time Bynum enjoys go-karting, gardening, 80′s music, and swimming. It is rumored he can quote the entire Steel Magnolias movie and likes to yell at the television while watching Jeopardy. Although quite the Southern gentleman, he has been known to dance around his loft in his underwear listening to Britney Spears.
Cody Globig – F1 and V8 Super Cars Contributor
Cody is a 20-something journalism student at the University of Cincinnati. Sadly, he grew up there too… Our man from the Queen City (hardy-harr-harr, how ironic) grew up fixing cars and doing home improvement projects with his father and grandfather (wait, how did he turn out gay?) until he was bitten by the racing bug in 2001.
He began contributing to Q4G in 2011 and covers all things international, but mainly with a focus on the Formula One World Championship and the V8 Supercar series. He also pens our weekly section “The Young and the Wreckless”.
You’d think this diminutive (only 5’3″) wordsmith would overcompensate for things, but it’s not true: his first car was a tiny little baby blue 1967 SAAB 96 with 46 horsepower. Nowadays you can find Cody gallivanting around writing articles for Verge Magazine (which he’s an editor of), hidden away in the back of a bar wiping people’s pockets dry hustling them in billiards, selling electronics and appliances at a major department store, or even wrenching on a fleet of vintage GM buses in his spare time. Okay, so maybe he’s overcompensating with the 30,000lb buses… Don’t judge.
Adam Lovelace – NASCAR Contributor
Adam was born at the age of zero and grew up in small-town Ohio. His passion for racing began in his early teen years as he raced BMX bikes while sporting mohawks, multi-colored hair and hating car racing because that’s what his family liked and liking what they liked just wasn’t cool. After attending his first stock car race at Michigan International Speedway that all changed.
He began working in the ARCA series with various teams, including the 1997 Rookie of the Year team. After his stint in ARCA and a lack of sponsorship for the team, Adam went back to school to get back into the motor sports world on the media side of the business and currently writes and shoots photography for Queers4gears and Speedwaymedia.com and has been published in Speedway Illustrated, Afterelton.com, and Towleroad.com.
Adam resides in the suburbs of Cincinnati with his partner of 10 years and three Dachshunds. He enjoys looking at Dale Earnhardt Jr, racing, college sports, camping, beaches, palm trees and playing with his wieners (the Dashshunds, come on now…) and has very little interest in musicals, theater, and hot chicks. Little known fact: Adam has never seen an episode of American Idol.
