Being the huge racing fan I am, I consider Days of Thunder one of my favorite movies. In that movie Cole Trickle, played by Tom Cruise, is advised to head right toward the smoke during any crash in front of him; by the time he gets there, the spinning cars involved in the wreck should have slid down the track and out of the way. At 180 miles per hour, a driver does not have the luxury of time to analyze all of the information thrust at him in a crash situation. If Cole had had to (2 comments)
One of my former bosses used to say this on almost a daily basis. I am sure you could find many examples of this being correct. There is probably some element of luck involved in almost every success. In the NASCAR Coca-Cola 600 this past weekend, David Reutimann won the rain-shortened race by staying out on the track during the caution for rain that ended up being the last caution of the race. There were 13 cars in front of David when the yellow flag was waved. All of them decided (6 comments)
Last week I celebrated my 31st birthday, causing me to pause and reflect on my life. To me a birthday is almost like New Years. It's a time to make decisions about how I want to live the next year of my life. It makes me think about what I have accomplished so far and what I would like to accomplish before the next anniversary rolls around.
The evening before my birthday someone posed the question to me, "What is the most important thing on a tombstone?" I gave it as much thought as I (1 comments)

Slow Down-The Fastest Way to Get Everything You Want
This book has meant a lot to me. I picked it up, early into my sobriety, as part of a course I was taking to get my life coaching certification. The course was taught by the author himself, David Essel. I was not sure at the time that I wanted to be a life coach, but I knew that I needed to make some major changes in my life if I were going to maintain my sobriety. I was willing to try anything-even slowing down.
In racing, pit strategy is a major factor in determining who wins the race. Crew chiefs and drivers have to determine the right time to come into the pit. Can you make it to the end of the race on the fuel you have or should you come in for a splash of gas? Should you take two tires or four? This past weekend's race saw the winner's team debating on whether or not he had enough fuel and whether or not his tires still had enough grip to hold off challengers who would come in and (0 comments)
This past weekend Mark Martin did it again! We talked in an earlier post about a person's being too old to accomplish his dream. Well, Mark Martin proved that his win a few weeks ago over the age of 50 was not a fluke. He won again Saturday night at Darlington in the Southern 500, conquering "The Track too Tough to Tame" for only the second time in his career.
Darlington is one of the toughest race tracks on the NASCAR circuit. It couples high speeds with tight racing conditions, meaning there is (3 comments)
One of the quickest and easiest ways to get a race car to handle better and increase its speed is to adjust the tire pressure. This can be done to the next set of tires while the car is still on the track, before its next pit stop, based on communication with the driver. When the new tires are put on, the handling of the race car improves without any other major adjustments. If the crew made the right adjustment, lap times also improve. Usually tire pressures are reduced so that the tire is softer, makes more (4 comments)
If you watch racing much, you will hear the commentator make the comment, "Loose is fast." A loose race car is one that turns easily. A tight race car is one that doesn't want to turn even as the driver turns the steering wheel. When a car is loose you will also hear it referred to as "free." It has no problems turning in the corner.
A loose car can go barreling into the corner, pivot and power out. A tight race car has to be let off the gas a little so the front tires (4 comments)
I was inspired to speak about the Big One with NASCAR's being in Talladega this past weekend. The Big One usually happens at one of NASCAR's restrictor plate races. For those of you new to racing, restrictor plates are used to cut down the horsepower on race cars to keep them from exceeding speeds that would be unsafe for both the drivers and the spectators. Cutting down on speed causes the cars to run in a pack called the draft, because on these large tracks two cars running together are much faster than one by itself. Having (0 comments)
