She was running low 12 second quarters in her 1963 Nova. I was given a sneak preview of the behind the scenes of this sport by Derrick a week before. Those who take this sport seriously have a lot invested, including computers and weather stations to help calculate their times.We walked to the line as she drove her car into position. Heres a girl who had not raced in almost three years, in a hotrod, racing guys...... They sort of compete with themselves and the other car in the lane next to them. The races arent just for "race cars" we saw several normal vehicles competing. Im pretty sure my truck was faster, but thats not what this sport is really about.

Dear God, there is a lot of power in one of these cars!

This was twice as loud and earth shattering than Aubreys car.

As we were leaving, I power braked my truck and got the tires to break lose on the pavement, doing what I thought was a pretty impressive burn out. Two years ago, I was filled with emotion as my last child graduated from MLHS.

After being scolded for doing that, I still pulled away with a huge grin on my face! So I know too well how many of you parents are feeling this week.

So, when he called saying he had been having some pain in his chest and was going in for a stress test, we all got pretty concerned about him. Last week, Brett underwent a heart cath at the Kansas Heart Hospital.

Obviously scared of what this experience was going to be like, I offered up my experience with it and assured him that he was going to be just fine. Brett insisted that he was probably going to be all plugged up and needed several stents because of his genetics.It caused a little confusion, but former resident Barb Keltner got it straightened out for me and we discovered we hadnt actually made a mistake at all! I just realized that it was one year ago that you and Mike moved away. I get in my truck and rev the engine up a few times, put it in gear with my foot on the brake and gas and when I take off, I go as fast as I can... Before our busy season begins at the lake, Ronda and I have been itching to experience new things and take mini road trips on the weekends.To make me feel better Barb sent this gem of a poster hanging on a restaurant window, I assume in the Kansas City area. We miss you guys and were glad youre keeping us on our toes and made coffee run out my nose! When Derrick and Shanda Swinehart and their daughter Aubrey invited us to watch them race their cars in Great Bend last weekend, we took them up on it.Keep in mind, I hadnt been to the "drag races" since I was a kid.Ronda used to go to Texas Speedway as a little girl with her family and we both discovered, we werent that interested in it when we were little, but this was a unique opportunity to watch a father and daughter race alongside their Grandpa Gordy Myers.Before the race, the drivers pull up to an area that is wet so they can do a quick burnout to get the tires hot and sticky for the launch at the starting line.
