“Life is made up, not of great sacrifices or duties, but of little things, in which smiles and kindness, and small obligations given habitually, are what preserve the heart and secure comfort.” –Humphry Davy
This past week was full of amazing moments with my team that I will treasure forever. We always try to have new experiences at each race we attend, and we now have many memories of racing in Norwalk, Ohio.
We got things rolling for the Norwalk Summit Nationals visiting Menards in Sandusky, Ohio, where we did our third display of the year with our NGK Spark Plugs dragster for shoppers to see up close and offer free samples of Celsius drinks. It’s always fun to meet new people and introduce them to the drag racing world with these displays. That night we hit the town and were reunited with other racers to celebrate the beginning of a new race.
My guys and I parked and got the pit area set up the next day, and of course made a stop at the ice cream stand. We were all in high spirits after our previous race, where we had both cars in the final round, driven by my sister Rachel and I. Both of our cars had top speeds and low ETs of the race in the 100-degree Tulsa heat, and we knew we could repeat those numbers with the cooler track conditions in Norwalk.
