THERE COMES a time when you are speechless . where u cant find the words .. 

 i am having a hard time finding the words 

...  A STORY  that started Well over a year ago  a quest  an adventure into the unknown  ..HOW WHEN AND WHERE  ... was the theme i  spent many a nights thinking about worrying  about afraid of .. sleepless  nights  for weeks and  wondered am i doing the right   thing am i doing it  the right way  even though i have never done something like this  . i have always helped anyone where i could even at my own cost  thats just me .. . but did i take on something i am not prepared for ..   many times i thought man its to much  it took alot of time away from my family days nights weeks ........   but a thought always stood in the way to help me on my way .. no way could u not .someone needs your help  u have it made  .the others suffers and is lost . and needs a helping hand .  the future could be brighter if only i can do something  nomatter my cost my familay and friends cost .. oe erson i met was in worst shape . something i could not live with with out helping  as small as it may seem  but can send someones future  leaps and bounds in the right dirrection  ..that partstill holds a furture  not proven yet   ... .. 

 

 

 I SOON REALIZED  it was much bigger than i .. i needed the help of many   starting right  here  at home with my rock my wife and then onto   sam and his family  then brandon and his shop and many others i cant think of right now .. i ventured into a raffle i never in my life tried before did i do it the right way  ... it paid off so i guess it worked .. speedzone members  joined in most of all  we have never met  but many helped in many ways .. silent faces with a strong voice loud and clear   ad faces i may never see .but know they have a big heart a caring heart  a love of country a love of their fellow americans ..  many were veterans i  can only say thanks  the true and real feelings can not be shown  ...........  THE  SHOWING OF THE CAR that sam along with his dad and brother put so much energy into  making that a happen ..  i was there to witness an amazing  family .i learned so much yes old dogs can learn  i never in my life  of 66 years sanded a car over and over just to find it needed more sanding and that i am not all that great at it ,,..................................................... when davd the veteran  saw his car   . his voice said its blue  the sound had excitement i never heard  from him   the walk around was amazing to watch   all the folks outside to witness this   in the cold and rain  .. which brought the numbers way down who could attend .. and glad they didnt  with what mother nature had to give ..  i think the rain was sent  to help wash  some of the pain  the veteran carried  for so long .. ...    he was joyfull   . just what we all hoped ..i saw clear eyes  his true color not those dark  eyes i have gotten used to  that low voice as if to say i am afraid to speak ..   IN THE END LEAVING FOR HOME  david and i had a minute  face to face .. i saw life i saw color  i saw  happeness  i saw relief  .i saw a person who realized he isnt the only one  i left him saying  . its time to get out go back find that person u loved  .u have a wonderfull family inside the building  to live for  and u all deserve to be happy  ,u have many brothers and sisters  u will never meet   they all pulled for u  and  helped us along the way  .. .......... .. THANK U IS ALL I CAN SAY ..

 NO SIR U ARE  CORRECT   no pat on the back i am just the servent    EVERYONE WOULD need a pat on the back is not what we all wanted .. . I mJUST GLAD SO MANY  saw what  i was trying to do with little information  .. all who  joined in  get the same thanks  and joy   that we played all a  part in . so many need our help and it is impossible  to do that ..  but like racing we work hard to pass the next car and the next the next week and so on ..  this was a no loss finish, first place everytime .. . david our vet is  not comfortable  right now around big crowds  just yet  ..  .only time will tell and i am sure   that someday soon that can all change but still have a big hill to climb i may need a tow rope  to get up there .. i told him  i can only help him so far and  he  will be meeting  some who shared his life  i asked him  to  meet some  brothers i cant be .. and will  little by little this will take some time.. but time is in   his favor ..  i have plenty  left i hope ... ...   glad you took the ride with us . tell the wife and son thanks ..

God Bless you for what you have done Mike. You are a good man. I promise you that you have had an affect on David's life & his family's life. You may never get to see it, but I'm betting that David will pay it forward, to another service member in need like he was (and I'm not talking about the car). Like I said to you before, you will never know how many ripples in the pond that you created. Blessings have a way of multiplying, usually in ways you never dreamed of.

There may be many that look down their noses at racers, but I know better. Yes, we get nasty and dirty. Yes, we've been known to say some really bad things to/about others, after something bad just happened. But they are without a doubt some of the most kind & generous people that I have ever known. There is a guy in Tucson named Carlos Serrano, and he is one of the most intense/serious racers I've ever known. Second only to the late ARCA & USAC stocks great Jack Bowsher. Carlos was a very accomplished racer. He was a local terror in AZ on dirt bikes & quads, winning a lot. He was twice a European 250cc motocross champ, riding his own equipment that he maintained. He turned down factory rides there because he missed AZ. After he got back home, he took up racing off road buggies & trucks, and won numerous class trophies. Then NASCAR's Brian France, yeah that guy, decided to pave a track in Tucson. Carlos built a super late model, and taught himself how to race it. He won over half of the features in his first season. I can't tell you how many times I saw him stop working on his car at the track, to work on a competitor's car. I've seen him loan, or out right give a part/parts to them as well. He would tell you how he set up his car, and not lie to you about it. He helped me learn how to race, and to properly maintain a race car. He didn't know me at all. I really admired how he raced, and told him so 1 night at the track. I didn't even own a race car yet, so he couldn't sell me anything. That's why I love the racing community so much. Most racers tend to be giving people. I said all that to say this. Some will go way past just helping out their fellow racer. Mike, you absolutely fall into that category! I just wanted you to know that I really appreciate what you have done for David.

Thank You!!
