Back on Track
"Larry called me--it was pretty much out of nowhere," says the soft-spoken Krewson--"I still don't know who's been spreading those lies--wanting to know if I'd be interested in coming to Michigan and Road & Track.
"Now, I've been reading Road & Track since ... literally before I can remember. All my life." So instead of Chicago, he moved to Ann Arbor, where he now lives "in a nice little house in the country. It's about half what I paid for my apartment in New York, and it's roughly seven or eight times as big." With his background in comedy, he says, "I like to think that I help lighten the tone."
Webster also vamped up the graphics. "The design and appearance of the magazine is just as important if not more so to a reader's enjoyment," he emailed after our meeting. "We are, I think, very lucky in this regard because Dave Speranza joined us a year ago. Speranza came from Bicycling magazine and he's a huge talent. Instead of going to an outside consultancy to redesign the magazine and logo, Dave did all of it ... his designs make you want to read the words and of course cars are hugely visual."
