Like most all of my tweets it was pure sarcasm. At least for me it was…
Before I went to bed that night I had over half of the amount of money I needed to purchase an engine. And as I sit here on Friday of that same week, I am beyond pleased to announce that we have made budget and we are going racing.
I am truly blown away by the support that I have received from both friends and a few complete strangers from Twitter. I can’t begin to explain how alive I feel knowing that I will get to go racing again. When I turned in my driver’s suit for my career as a mechanic I mentally and emotionally closed that chapter of my life. I pride myself on being a dreamer and this week you all taught me that I wasn't dreaming big enough.
From the bottom of my heart, thank you all for the financial and moral support. I am truly touched and thank you for "letting me drive, I won’t make a fool out of you."
RaceSaver Sprint Series. Once we track down an engine I will update you on the date of the first race. The team and program is coming together quickly and I will let everyone know when we have more news to announce.
I wasn’t sure how to ask for the money that everyone has pledged – it makes me feel a little awkward – but I’ve been able to touch base with most of you already. We’ve set up a Paypal account to make it easy or if you prefer you can mail your donation.
