Citrus County Speedway
This was my first trip back to Citrus in 3 years. Wow, what a cool track! The whole place is so much nicer since the new owners took over, repaved it and cleaned it up. Thanks!
Of course we were racing under a cloud tonight; this was our first event since Dave's accident, and I can tell you, our buddy Dave was really missed. The track did a autograph session/fundraiser for Dave's family, and it ended up raising $5000+. Thanks to all!
During that session, we had our cars on the front straight to meet the fans. Dave's wife Lynn appeared. With a big smile, she gave me a friendly hug and thanked me for coming to the event. I was too stunned to notice, but I will bet you that she did that for every driver there. She is an amazing woman and mom! Here we were, at an event to remember her husband, and she was the one consoling us.
We had a good field of 20 cars and an exciting race. One problem however: I had my first DNS in sprint cars. I broke something in the rear end in practice. I thought we had it under control, but it broke again as soon as we pushed off for the heat, so we were done for the night.
