This picture is of the very first time I ever drove my Jr. Dragster! I just turned 8 years old and I can honestly say this is one of the most memorable days of my life. My Dad took me to a dead end street and helped me go back and forth for hours, letting me get used to my car. I felt like I was on top of the world and instantly right at home in that HUGE helmet! When I am at the track you will still catching wearing that big smile, although I have grown into my teeth just a little bit since then 🙂 I think racing helped shape me as a person and I’m sure it kept me out of trouble on the weekends throughout the years. I am so thankful for this day and what it began….
