Default Mr. John Haggin

I was watching the special on "Miss Geico" the other night and it was awesome! I was wondering what Mr. Haggin does for a living - he seems to have totally endless pockets while being an extremely generous man. I don't even know how many race teams he supports. It seems like he is doing alot for the sport of offshore racing with all his generosity. Can anyone fill me in?

P.S. I'm not trying to get into his "business", he seems to be a very interesting guy.

Fair question. I'm always reading biographies, I find people's histories interesting, especially about someone whose unparalelled generosity and passion for our sport is doing wonders for us. I wouldn't mind learning more about the man, either.
