Kevin Olson is a Rockford native and Hall of Fame race car driver, plus he loves to share stories from his book Cages are for Monkeys.

If you haven't heard of Kevin Olson, then it's about time you have.

He's a Rockford guy that's made a name for himself by driving a race car.

Even if you aren't a racing fan, I'll guarantee you'll like Kevin. He's a really funny guy with lots of great stories.

Oh, by the way, Olson is a two-time Hall of Famer inducted into both the National Midget Auto Racing Hall of Fame and the USAC Hall of Fame

This week he came by to tell me about his book, "Cages are for Monkeys" and to share some funny stories. Here's how it went.
