    First race tonight

    It's a weekly points series in Claremont, NH at a small 1/4 mile car race track.

    30 laps. B race

    My hope is to stay with the pack and maybe compete on a sprint or two on the prime laps.
    Wish me luck.

    I didn't win, and I did not come in last.

    I learned, I had fun, I'll do it again.

    That is all.

    Keep those as your goals and you'll do well for yourself. That's what I expect of myself every race as well. Seems to be working out okay...

    Are you serious? A quarter mile? 400 meters? Did you feel like throwing up with dizziness afterwards?

    The shortest courses I ever raced were 4/10ths of a mile. They were like, go 150 meters, turn, go 150 meters, turn, go 150 meters, turn go 150 meters, turn....

    I actually did not get dizzy until I got out of the car when we got to dinner an our later.

    I had the brief drop in blood pressure when I stood up.

    I noticed in some of the pictures my wife took that I did not appear to be suffering as hard as I felt I was, I guess this means that I can push harder if need to.

    Another goal in my next race is to look like I am dying in the pics.
