Wild Race Night!

Wow! What a wild race night it was!  We finally had a Friday night race so Johnny was able to go with us.  After leaving Myrtle Beach it was on to the Raleigh, NC area to the Wake County Speedway.  Lucas, from Argentina, Johnny's new mentee, went with us for his first experience with the "family obsession" of racing!  He really liked it, believe it or not! And, oh my! It was a crazy race!  We qualified 2nd but drew the starting position of #6.  We finally took the lead with 20 laps to go after a long battle and many cautions and double file restarts.  However, a car issue enabled us from keeping the lead and we finished 3rd.  It wasn't the finish we wanted (we wanted to win!) however, it had to be one of the best races we have ever had (other than our wins, of course!)  The competition was stiff, the driving on Justin's part was excellent and the race was HOT!! Jacksonville, NC is the next racing town.

That is awesome! It was so good to see you on Sunday! I wish that we still lived in Jacksonville! When is that race. We may have to travel to show you around "our" town! Have a great week!
