Got one coon. Couple more to go.
For me, just me mind, racing 24 hours as teammates with David and Greg
Hobbs, I'll take that memory over drinking gin with the Stones. But, I do
imagine you had a good time.
As for the implied arrogance that none of us could possibly be any good as
top flight drivers... That's fine, you can "settle" as you see fit. I
grabbed for the brass ring with all the strength I could muster. I didn't do
it because one day somebody would invent the internet and I could recite my
racing CV. I just did it because I had a calling to race, really race, not
to squawk on a fencerail about my prowess. I'm just a regular ham-n-egger,
pants-wearing fart, who had a dream and went for it (and still going for it
occasionally as money and obligations permit).
But, while you (universal you, not aimed at anyone in particular) may think
there's a pro racecar driver factory somewhere, and if you don't get minted
there, you're nothing. Well, go tell that to Tiny, Junior, Mario, Jimmy, AJ,
and a whole lot of guys who were once snot-nosed runts with their pusses
pressed up against a guardrail.
I'm good with your judgementalism. It means nothing to me.
The world's full of two kinds of people. Those in the arena. And those in
the stands watching and criticizing.
Keep laughing. I am. ;D
