I won, I won the world formal race...the cool thing is...it was the fist year they had a World Formal class....It still kind of blows me away!!
(Me in my World Formal)
The truth is I had planned on...or should I say counted on winning the Half class (For those of you who don't know the different classes are the types of motors in the cars.)
Anyway I was moving up from the back ... passing cars one lap at a time ..when a car came down on me...hit me hard and that was the end...I was out of the race. ...... I don't think I have ever been so MAD!!!
I went back to my car trailer and sat inside, crying and hitting my elbow hard against the trailer wall.......That was all I could do...
Mom found me there and insisted I go back out and race my last race....(Which of course was the World Formal)...I refused...I just wanted to give up and be left alone....My blood was boiling inside of me and my emotions were out of control!!
Why bother...I'll just get hit again!
Well you know how Moms are...I did go out and race that last race and as they say:
"THE REST IS HISTORY!"
That is how I became the first ever
