The Adventure Called Life Day 283...no right turns please...

Today I went to Owosso Speedway with my family. It was a lot of fun, except the part when Troy made a right turn instead of a left coming out of turn four going along the front stretch. He had been racing like a mad man for the first couple of laps. It was crazy to see really. At first I was excited to see him race so hard, but then I realized that it could cause trouble. BIG trouble. and it did cause trouble unfortunately. He drove so aggresively that he cut off Don in the heat race! The aggressive move sent Troy hurtling into the front stretch wall, and then because he lost steering, he was sent flying into the outside wall of turn one. Awful scene.

My heart stopped, my hand flew to my mouth, choking back tears. I wanted to cry. It was an awful sight. I wish I could have stopped it. I wish I could have gone back in time and told Troy that he wasn't clear of Donny. ugh.

Then it proceeded to pour, while I was still outside. So drenched I ran back into the trailer to wait out the sudden thunder shower. It was a surreal day. I have a minor throat irritation and sinus pressure. I am going to pick up some Zicam so I don't get sick, just in case...

Timmy got out there for qualifying and it was beautiful. There is no other sound in the world as a Tech West Race Car...pure awesomeness...After the wreck, he decided that his head was not in it anymore so He didn't continue to race. My heart sunk. I wasn't happy. But I understood.

 back to SAU in the morning...
