Don't get me wrong, we love racing at the Bullring, but having a weekend off every now and then is also nice.
The team and I spent the weekend working on the cars, getting them ready for the August 30th race this weekend as well as our week-long display at Findlay Chevrolet. The Super Late Model was not quite up to showroom quality, so a new door, nose, wear strip, and fender were installed. We are only making a few adjustments this week so we should have a pretty easy week and weekend.
This is the first week of school, so all of us at H-Town Racing Inc. have been getting ready for the new school year. My son, Jimmy started the first grade and my daughter Codi started the fourth grade. Pat's daughters Megan and Madi entered fifth and first grade. Joe, H-Town Racing's crew chief, is also an assistant principal at Las Vegas High School. So, he went back to school this week as well.
