|A Message From The Coach:
My name is Eugene "The Track Junkie" Driver. I am the head coach and founder of The Los Angeles Track Junkies I have run and coached Track & Field in the Los Angeles area since the age of 15, in 1965.
I ran track for Mt. Carmel High School, where I set or tied school and league records in the 100yd, 220 yd, and 4 x 100 relay (The old CIF Div 1, Catholic League).
I then ran for L.A. Harbor College and transferred to CSULA where, in 1971 & 1972, I qualified for the NCAA Div 1, 200m. I also made top 10 marks in the 220 yd/200 and the 4x100, 4x220, and 4x440 relays. From 1972-75 I helped coach the original L.A. Jets, youth track club (Purple and Gold, founded by schoolmate Edward McElory).
In 1975, I was the sprint coach at CSULA. I also hold certifications from the USAT&F Association, in coaching and officiating.
I have held Master Sprint Clinics and created two towing/resistance systems called "The Speed Belt" and the "Super Speed Belt." I also still hold the age "36" WR of 47.7 in the 400m.
