Pat's Top 5

 

As I reflect back on the last couple weeks, I have a few thoughts that make me realize how much I appreciate racing and the people that enjoy it.

 

1. The last 4 tracks I have raced at, have had great racing surfaces, Marshalltown, Webster City, Deer Creek, and Decorah. Many people around here don't understand how good we have it compared to other parts of the country for track prep.

2. I always enjoy talking to people after the races that take the time to come down from the grandstand. Hopefully I will have my new trading cards soon to hand out.

3. As I looked at feature lineup the other night at Webster City in the Stock car, I wondered how many feature wins combined the other drivers in the field have, it would be fun to know, here are just a couple names that would greatly add to the total, Mark Elliott, Steve Jackson, Rick Gustin, Jeff Havilk, Bob Sutherland, etc......

4. We had fun at Boone speedway on June 9th. We needed to be one spot better in the feature, finished 2nd, won our heat race, so all in all a good night. Was great seeing many old friends and finding many new fans that love the trucks :). Thanks a bunch to Dana , Jenn, Timothy, and Tim in the pits, and it was also great having extra family and friends make it to the races last night. The next truck race is in 2 weeks at Webster City.

5. I hope everyone continues to support the local tracks so that generations from now can continue to enjoy this sport.
