Thumper and I want to wish everybody a Merry Christmas and a safe and prosperous New Year. Lets remember the real purpose of this special day. Everybody has a story that contains happiness and sorrow but because we were special enough someone suffered the ultimate pain so we could be here today. Happy birthday Jesus. To my racing family, my home away from home thank you all for making me feel special. I have met so many wonderful people over the years and have made friends that last a lifetime. My Christmas wish is that racing can keep going so that others can also create lasting friendships that only a sport like racing can create. Its beyond being rational and often we question our own sanity for indulging so much for so little return.........that is until you consider the friendship and love we also were beneficiaries of, that IS the most valuable trophies we achieve doing this. I would do it all over if given the chance. May the Lord smile down upon us and keep us safe so in this coming year we find cause to celebrate the wonderful blessings we are privy to. May the track stay green and our engines scream with life. See you all at the checkers.
Its hard to word this deal but needs saying.This was definitely a mixed bag this weekend. We had a fantastic show all ready for Saturday nite but the weather again tricked us and took away what was to be a barn burner of a finale.All the racers had to be crushed.From the ashes came another group that is not often considered and that is the 4/4 wheelers. It was amazing to watch these guys at work making sure everybody was rescued from mothers natures wrath. Some of the less fortunate teams ended up in a foot or more of water but that did not stop those rescuers from wading through the lakes and so professionally pulled out trucks, trailers, race cars and motor homes with what I saw absolutely no damage. Some needed a wash job but that was about it. Heres the lemonade part. These guys were having the best time they ever had being helpful AND using their skills and machines to show what a hero can do. There was even a duce doing the heavy lifting with some of those motorhomes. Some even had to be pulled out backwards because of nothing to hook to in the front and nobody wanted to damage the rigs.So it was not only a weekend for the speed demons to shine, the mudders also got to perform at their highest level.STS is really a magical place and I hope everyone realizes that.Again the "all involved" attitude proved to be the winning one Unfortunately we will loose a few teams for the finale on the 21st due to scheduling conflicts and might add a few who could not make this weekend but let us not forget it is God who made any of this possible along with his army, our soldiers. We are indeed the most blessed people in the history of the world and when you think of it this way the weekend was a huge success.I want to thank everyone involved for making this old man feel important at least in my own little way. I bet there are lots of you that feel the same way.Special thanks to South Texas Promotions and South Texas Speedway for making this happen and Im really excited to finish this deal out on the 21st, God willing. And thank you all mudders for your increadable service to those truly in need. I wish I had video but I still use a flip phone.Maybe some else can.Lets hope you guys can be spectators for the next show. I love my racing family.
