Special Thanks: Thank you to my great, wonderful, loving, understanding, perfect (and anything else I missed) wife, who puts up with me being at the shop Monday through Friday and at the track all day Saturday. Thanks to the sponsors who make it possible for us racers to compete on a weekly basis; it wouldn’t be possible without you. Also, thanks to the fans who come out to watch us go around in circles.  Last but not least, thank you to all my crew members and people who lend us a hand at the track, and at the shop. It takes a special kind of person to devote summer Saturday’s to being at the track, and time during the week to be at the shop.
