Speaker Bio: Mr. Barthel completed his undergraduate studies at Hope College in Michigan and is currently a Ph.D. student studying exercise physiology at Michigan State University with Dr. David Ferguson. He is involved with research projects in the Spartan Motorsport Performance Lab studying the physiological response to racing.
