“Some succeed because they are destined to, but most succeed because they are determined to.” – Henry van Dyke
As I’m sitting in a hotel room after racing in the Lone Star Nationals, a Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series Central Regional race at Texas Motorplex in Ennis, TX, I’m reflecting on our second win of the year. We had horrible weather conditions during the weekend with two days of rain, then almost 90 degrees and very humid on Monday. We were scheduled to only run Thursday to Saturday but spent two extra days at the track doing nothing while we waited for the rain to stop. Unfortunately, each race we have been at this year has gotten some degree of rain delay, which sucks and is a waste of our time, but we have a job to do and that is to make sure we have the best cars on race day to get the win.
Despite our boredom waiting for the sun to shine, we finished the weekend with both of our dragsters on top with my sister and I driving. This was the second time that Rachel and I faced off in the final round, and I will continue to have the bragging rights, for now.
