Re: Diary Of A Season 2020

First race of 2020 finally here. So how do I feel? Excited no doubt, but somewhat apprehensive, and why is that? Here's some of it. 1) I have zero time in the car....not even moved the car since I got it. :roll: 2) I don't know this track. I raced River Glade in 1984 but never Petty....I can't wait....

Re: Diary Of A Season 2020

Iracing.......Does Promote Sponsors With no races or show opportunities right now I thought I would give Iracing a shot. I had a wheel and pedals (Logitech) from years ago and thought I would join the Iracing net work and promote my sponsors through races done by the Maritime Pro Stock Tour. These ...

Re: Diary Of A Season 2020

Okay, so truth is I do miss racing, but with the weather so up and down I haven't had time to be 100% ready. My crew can't come over and we still have some things to do, finish the car, clean and load the trailer, get spare rims and a set of practice tires. So I did get a chance to get out and see t...

Re: Diary Of A Season 2020

When You Make Mistakes God Comes To The Rescue For All Us We all make mistakes, some worse than others, some with little consequences, others with severe consequences. Sometimes we don't even notice depression. I often would wake up and say to myself "what's wrong"? Then proceed to go over the list...

Re: Diary Of A Season 2020

Brian Watson Recently I posted a picture of Brian Watson on the front page of our site. Brian was killed in a single car accident on April 29th. I have talked to his Dad twice, a great man, who was also part of my Late Model race team in 2005 and 2006. In the mid 90's I met Dave through the Martin f...

Re: Diary Of A Season 2020

I must say it is very frustrating not knowing what will happen in 2020. NASCAR was told they could race at Richmond but no fans. That would work for them because they would get revenue from TV rights. That won't work in Ontario or the Maritimes because fans are the revenue source. The only way we ca...

Re: Diary Of A Season 2020

I will soon have bio's on our crew members from the Maritimes. They are sending me info now and I should have it posted by early next week. Meanwhile I am finishing the list of things to do on the car and should hopefully be ready in 2 weeks. Because of the shut down my crew have stayed away, we wan...

Re: Diary Of A Season 2020

Time for an update. First I must thank God for all the many blessings He has given me. I am truly blessed so much and very thankful. I recently have been busy getting my equipment and then getting it painted. When I got the car back from Cole Butcher, he asked me if I had a pit box and I replied "no...
