Pearson Lee Williams won the Late Model feature Saturday night at Cochran Motor Speedway. A video of that race gets us started off this week with what was a very exciting night of racing. Other videos will be added as they are completed.
Color can tell you so many things in life. Wearing a certain color on any given day can tell people the mood you may be in that day. There are even color personality tests that tell what kind of person you are or how you feel at the time you take it and it's even a proven science. The color red, for instance, can indicate that you are feeling assertive, powerful or passionate. My favorite colors, pink and blue, indicate an understanding, calming, feminine, hopeful nature along with inner peace, communicative ability, persistence, and determination. Pretty much sums me up rather well. There is a negative and positive side to all colors. Color meaning has a dual nature, good and bad. If I knew what color represented someone who can't get her stuff together most days, or for someone who can't seem to locate where she put her brain at least three times a day, I'd be that color too. I ask myself most days, "What in the world Carolyn?" but I should probably be saying this is definitely a yellow day, or purple day, or whatever color could represent my insanity for that day.
The biggest paying race this week at 441 Speedway was the bomber class. Over 30 people were vying for the $3000 to win. Jacob Simpson won it as you can see in this first video. The other race videos will be added to this post as they are completed.
I know I've asked before if you're giving to racing what it's giving to you. This article follows in with that in talking about sacrifice in racing. When I ask if you're giving to racing, what I mean is are you actually sacrificing anything to live this dream? Racing can be a dream or a nightmare depending on whether your car ends up on the rollback or loads into the hauler at the end of the night. The racing life isn't for everyone and being a race car driver isn't for everyone. Besides taking talent in the driving aspect, it takes a multitude of sacrifices on the driver's part and to be a part of the racing life requires it's own sacrifice. It costs something to be a part of racing in any form but the degree to which you pay differs from one to the other.
