I Love Racing

August 24, 2011

I love racing. I seriously can’t get enough time at the track. I love the competition. I love the friendships. I love the speed and all that comes with it.

This year has been tough. I took time off this season for personal reasons and I’ve been tweaking like a junkie needing a fix. I haven’t been to the races, and for the most part I’ve fallen off the grid to many of my racing friends and family. Not exactly the way I like to leave something l enjoy so much.

I miss wrenching on the bikes and getting everything dialed in before the weekend. I grew up a gearhead, so it’s really therapeutic to put wrenches on a bike and adjusting things just the way you like.

The friends I made at the track are some of the best people you’ll ever meet. I could go toe to toe with these guys, swap paint and take an inside line on someone only to have a beer with them later that day. It’s a family atmosphere and the majority of folks are there to have fun, win races and leave in one piece.
Taking the season off this year was a tough decision, but I can promise you I’ll be back in 2012. I can’t wait.
