"That's racing."

I've never liked that phrase. Racing is so unpredictable and often doesn't go the way one would like it to go. It's a sport I love so much, but on the other hand, can hate so much. I know how much hard work, dedication, money..everything, that it takes to make it to a race and to be out of contention on lap 1 just plain sucks. To see the look of disappointment on a face that usually has a smile is heartbreaking.

The past 2 seasons have been anything but fun for Jay and I think if he didn't have bad luck, he wouldn't have any at all. After his night was ended early, Karen got a text from her mother in law that said "bad luck and bad tires, but one hell of a driver." And I couldn't agree more.

But here is why I love Jay, I just received a text that says "Just to give you a heads up, the beast will be making an appearance this weekend at Spokane Raceway Park." Instead of giving up, he went home yesterday and went hard to work to fix the car and do it all over again. No matter how many times he gets knocked down, he keeps getting back up and that is something to be appreciated.
