#38 - Shaun Peet - A hockey journey to Nascar, Talladega Nights and being a leadership champion
It was a ton of fun on the Top Cheddar podcast as Shaun Peet joined Lolly and Mooner to chat about his hockey journey from the BCHL to the Calder Cup and how that journey led to his new career in Nascar Racing!
Shaun Peet played in the British Columbia Hockey League (BCHL) with his hometown Nanaimo Clippers and the Penticton Panthers. From there, he secured a scholarship to Dartmouth College and played four years. After he graduated from Dartmouth, Peet played 7 years of professional hockey. He played in the Western Professional Hockey League, East Coast Hockey League, Central Hockey League, Southern Professional Hockey League and the American Hockey League. That included a run to the Calder Cup (AHL Championship) with the Wilkes-Barre Penguins in 2000-01.
While on a hockey suspension, a chance meeting led to an opportunity to tour the inner workings of Nascar. Well, one thing led to another and soon a new career path was on tap for Shaun. That work also led to being in the movie Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby
In addition to coaching in NASCAR, Peet is also an author, motivational speaker, and business consultant with DECK Leadership, who inspires the modern workplace through pit crew strategies.
