1)COMMITMENT- Eat,sleep,and live Racing
2)Knowledge-Know what you are doing or be smart enough to hire someone that does.
3)Driver Skill-Ability to see what is going on around him and act appropiately.
4)Communication-A great set up for one person is Junk for someone else.
5)$ , It takes money to race,but winning is expensive, speed costs money-how fast can you afford to go?
6) Family support- Single no problem Married (have to consider how what you do will effect others)
7)Confidence-KNOW you can Win!
8)LUCK- The best driver with the best equipment can have a flat or be taken out by a lapped car.
9)Character- You can tell a Winner by How He Loses
10) Good Judgement- Know when to quit, regroup, or go in another direction.

Some of my favorite sayings are incorperated above, but these are pertinent also:

1) If you prefer to be a follower, pick a winner as your leader. Then keep up with him!

2)Watch the man ahead of you and you'll soon learn why he is ahead.

3) You can always tell a man who thinks he is smarter than others, but you can't tell him much!

Good luck! Jammin what are your top 10?

Lets see here...
1) Open your mind to learning in every aspect of the sport.
2) dedication
3) determination to succeed and do the best you can
4) planning
5) patience in all aspects
6) being as thorough as possible in everything you do
7) organization......sponsorships and money come to those who do their homework
8) setting realistic goals and working toward them
9) a great team and family support are also apart of organization, but they do make or break you
10) good attitude will take you a long way
