Dear Chad Johnston,
Well, my new friend, this is the week we've all been waiting months for. You know ALL eyes will be on you and I hope you are up to the challenge. I personally am counting on it.
Your resume is impressive, no doubt about it. But you and I both know it's going to take more than that. It's going to be up to you to make him communicate with you about what the car is doing and what he wants. From what I understand the two of you have not spent a great deal of time together but all that is certainly about to change. Hopefully this process goes quickly and easily. But.............you're both men and we know how the species rolls. Trial by fire baby!
My biggest hope in the first few weeks is that YOU will be the guy who gives him a car that unloads FAST. BAD FAST. That's been a sticking point for me for a while now and I'm hopeful that you are the guy who can make this happen.
You've got some big shoes to fill. You see I loved me some Darian Grubb. He gave me a championship and something that made me feel like I was part of that championship team. I thought the Addington administration was going to be bigger than it was but I was still crazy about him. And Zippy...well we both know how strong that bond is.
I'll be totally honest. I already have a Chad. He's awesome but when he makes it to victory lane my heart doesn't skip a beat and I don't smile for a whole week. I look forward to seeing your smiling face in the winners circle and knowing the sound of your voice just like I know my own.
Til next time,
You never know how strong you are until being strong is the only choice you have.
