2010 Feature finally did get by our close friend

Picture from the MINI Shoe Nationals at Kalamazoo Speedway.. Qualified 3rd out of 72 racers.

2010 Car

I have been with my wife for 22 yrs and married for 19yrs. I have 4 kids between the ages of 22 and 15. And without thier support I could not have been in and or around racing. I have been personally involved in racing since I was a young child working on my fathers racecars and friends of our family's cars. I also raced GoKarts when I was 10-12 yrs old and won 2 championships. Then proceeded to work with my Dad on his cars until he took a break from racing to raise his children, until the late 80's. That is when we built him another racecar (Sportsman) and proceeded to work his car as my family was starting. Thru out the 90's we won 19 feature events with him behind the wheel and myself wreching on the car. I stepped back in the 2001 season to spend more time with my growing family. Until 2007 and the racing itch starting getting to my wife actually and she suggested getting back into racing and that just lite the fire under the kids and I. That is when my Dad & I started looking for a cheaper division to race in. That is when we heard about the 4 Cylinder Division. And it all started again from there. My first year back was in 2006 sharing the driving duties with my dad and 2 oldest sons, they were 12 and 16 at the time, I was able to drive 3 times that year until I broke my leg on the 4th of July. And came back at the end of the year to race at Berlin Raceways 1st ever enduro. Where my dad went on to finish 5th and I finished a dissapionting 36th out of 82 cars and completed 173 of 200 laps. So for the next 2 years we would build 4 more cars and continue to race thru the 2008 season. That is when my father became ill and he was forced to retire and give up his dream, and in the mean time we sold all of our cars and we took the 2009 season off. In Oct. of 09 we lost my father and I proceeded to buy his car we built for him during the summer before. and raced it in the 2010 season. I finished 14th 14th in the season standing after only racing in 2/3rds of the events scheduled. So this 2011 season is looking to be VERY bright for us as we will have 3 cars racing (my 2 sons will be driving the 2 other cars) and I am running for the championship with full weekly schedule.
