Finally got to race my car last night after being down for repairs and such. Havent been able to keep it going to the feature. Nor have been able to get out to race much either. Still very new at this. Started last in heat race. Was hanging with everyone till a car in front spun sideways. Nowhere to go but slide it sideways. Hit him with the right rear 1/4 panel. Jumped on the gas and it still rolling, good. Few laps later got tagged from behind in the turn. Just a racin'deal. Was told later I drove over his right front. Stayed on the gas and it ran. Finished heat race. Feature race started 19 out of 25. ACTUALLY passed a few cars. Avioded some wrecks, got passed and then I passed. Was actually getting to do some serious racing and a little rubbing. Finished 14th on the lead lap. Car is in one piece, no leaks, water temp never got above 200. Just have to beat some dents out. Even got a donught on the right side. Might be on the forward side of this racin' deal. What a night and it was FUN!!!! Still got a big smile. The wife almost seemed more excited. Learned a lot from reading this message forum. Just wanted to say thanks to all on here for advice they give to each other. I'm ready for more power and go faster..LOL

I've had the falling apart syndrome...LOL It feels good to finish. Was no where close to a win, but it is great to get out and RACE!! I'll worry about winning when I get more seat time and better at this...LOL
