SOMEONE GOT THE LIVER...!!!
"We race Sat night & hopefully the car will be in one piece for racing Sun... no guarantee.....!!!"
Perhaps I shouldn't have thought about it.
Car is in one piece, motor isn't. Last night was a pretty rough night, I feel like I should have a target on my back, but we survived. John got the car off the trailer this morning, did a few things, checked the oil & found water. Starts good, so he started it up, revved it up & sure enough it's got a rod knocking.
I'm in my own little battle for points, but I think John feels worse than I do. So he's up at the garage, putting the poor little injured thing on the trailer. We're going to drag it all the way to the track, so I can start the main event, & pull off when the flagman throws the green flag. I will get points for starting the race, which keeps my points adding up. Silly isn't it?
I really wish I could have ran tonight, because my grandson's boss was going to let J.R. borrow his hornet, so we could race together. I'm sure he'll make the offer again, but I was looking forward to the fun. I think J.R. was too, although I've beaten that car a few times.....!!!! It would be terrible to be beaten by your grandma, heck it would be terrible to be beaten by anyone's grandma, probably.........!!! LOL
