Charlie Kimball and Diabetes

Hey did you know Charlie Kimball has Type 1 Diabetes???   Neither did I...My sister has it...and I know maybe not first hand but second hand.......it's a tough thing to live with!!!  She has to check her blood sugar all day and our mom gets up twice in the night to check it.  She now has an insulin pump that makes things a little easier but she has to change her sight every 3 days and sometimes her sight really hurts. 

Check out his web page at Charlie Kimball

This year I plan on giving 10% of my winnings to JDRF for Diabetes research....

Sunday in my City...Gettin ready for a New Season

Right now most every weekend is spent getting the new Midget ready for the 2011 season. We picked the used chassie up for a kid in California who has moved on to racing Sprint Cars...Sounds Like Fun!!!

Dad ordered a new Ford focus engine (That's why theses cars are often called the "Ford Focus Midgets") and we plan on dropping it in soon....There's a lot of work still to be done!!!

I plan on painting it flat black...but still haven't figured out what to do the decals in...kind of liking the idea of shinny black with a red and silver pin stripes around them....probably the same 3G design as my Micro Sprint....

I'm tiring to get a full sponsorship this year...but haven't figured out how to go about it...Would love some suggestions!!
