    Max Siegel's life really is the American dream. He overcame adversity in his early private life to become one of the most talented people in business today! Siegel has been a trailblazer from the time he hit the corporate pavement. From scholar to corporate lawyer to record company executive to, currently, the keeper of one of the most hallowed names in sports Siegel continues to prove he is a winner! It would be too easy to wrap Max's accomplishments in racial terms. Yes, he has broken down barriers over his career. But, it is not only Max's race that makes his story unique. It is also the fact that he embodies the drive, determination and gumption that creates a champ. Max Siegel in his career and life is a champion!

    There are people in life who can talk racing, people in life who can talk sports, and people in life who can talk entertainment - Max Siegel is the rare individual who can talk about them all and have a strong message to send. More impressive than his contacts and career path is the sincerity with which he has approached his place in the world. It is easy to see why folks like Reggie White and Tony Gwynn leaned on him to help counsel their careers - he is a man of integrity and principle above all else. It has been an honor to work with him to date; Dale Earnhardt Inc. is lucky to have him at the helm.

    In NASCAR (as African Americans) we are the odd guys out a lot of times. Max shows a lot of backbone, poise, and character with the way he handles himself. He has done tremendous things for Dale Earnhardt, Inc.

    Max motivates by understanding what moves people, from the financial to the spiritual and everything in between. Through that crucial understanding, he motivates his team to reach their goals. Max helped shape my career. You'd be lucky to have him guide yours.

    Having Max speak at Eli Lilly was like a breath of fresh air. He was engaging, informative, real, and down to earth. He did a wonderful job! Max really knows how to pack the house! WOW!
