After nearly 2 seasons of struggles, Jay finally got a win this weekend at Stateline and I couldn't be happier. So many times he felt like giving up, but would still keep on keepin on.

Campbell and I headed over Saturday morning, did some shopping in downtown Spokane and then headed to our hotel for awhile. We got to the race around 8:30 and saw that Jay had qualified last which told me the day must have not went too well. We cheered him on the whole race as he moved his way to the front. At the end of the race, he was in the right place at the right time as the 1st and 2nd place cars got together on the last lap. There have been many times that he has been in the wrong place at the wrong time, but this was not one of those times. I am just so proud that he was able to be in contention and able to get the win. Seeing the look on his face after getting out of the car was just priceless. I have been hoping for a good finish, to get that confidence back and build some momentum and I am so happy it happened. There really is nothing like a victory.

Campbell was so excited and proud of Jay. She is usually pretty shy around him but this time went right up and gave him a high five. He gave her the trophy and she got her picture with him :) As you can see from the last picture, the trophy didn't leave her side all the way home and that's the first thing she showed everyone when we got home, too cute :)
