I ran into an old family friend, Dale McCue at the grocery store tonight. His father and mine raced together back in the 70's. His father's car is in the picture below. It was a very cool encounter, because I've been thinking alot lately about contacting him to see if he would be interested in racing the 1000 with me in the future. Turns out he raced the last 500 on a motorcycle and is working towards the 1k with his son. Dale's father passed away a few years ago, so it was a bit of an emotional moment as we considered racing together in tribute to our fathers. I'm getting goosebumps just sitting here and visualizing us crossing the finishline, looking at each other and saying "Man! We did it!". Somehow, some way this has got to happen. It's like my version of landing on the moon. It's the ultimate personal achievement and I've got to do it while my father is still alive.

Thanks for the good words fellas. It's very exciting when I realize that this is a very real possibility. It's all in the head. Conceive, believe, achieve.

....now does anybody have a 100k I can borrow? Ha!

Brian,

Whatever happen to that racer? I think it deserves it's only thread. And like the rest said, I'll chase and pit for you as well.

Likewise Chris. I would rather be competing against you though. As far as the car, I had a thread around here somewhere about it. Maybe I'll revive it.

EDIT: Here it is I'll post the other couple of picture in the first post on this page.

Thanks for the link Brian and as far as racing, if the stars align and my bank account isn't completely empty I should be on schedule for early next year. I know what you mean about racing, it's my ultimate goal as well. It's one of those things on my hit list and I have to say it's at the top for personal goals. And I can't wait to be sporting my Yikes Fabrication sticker on the side of my Class 3, I can promise you that.

Chris
