finally getting back to the track! (WooHoo)

Fri Jun 24, 2011 4:32 pm

heading to Monroe with the 97s sprint car team this weekend. (about time) My buddies brother isnt racing this season (family things) so he has a new driver in the car, & I guess he is suppose to be pretty good. So their hopes of a top finish are pretty high. They tested the car out at South sound to get any bugs out of it, now on to the 5/8 mile track. Finallly I am getting back to the track after over a year off. (& they finally get to try out their new Engine) Wish us luck Image :mrgreen:

bad day at the track is still better than the best day at work for me. If I could make a living at a track I would be there all the time. Dont know how you can get tired of it myself. I just love being at the track

The actual race was always fine for me,the preperation,money and devoting all my time to be able to run up front was my burn out.The politics use to be what bothered me most years back,but i found as years went on,it comes back to you in your favor.The 358 mods were alot of fun for me,i tried a 360 sprint and it was all i could do to get it around the track the first time out.Will say after a few more times out,i felt as thou i should have done that all along.The sprint car is such a rush and even bigger thrill than a modified,i should have done that instead as it's also a #### of alot cheaper on tires i'm told.Won't deny i still get the itch,but i've been out of it so long and the money is another issue as i still owe on my house and have one kid left in the house.When all you have to do is drive i guess it's the way to go,but to me i always wanted to do it all and i guess that's what burned me out.
