NASCAR in my life
I've always been a fan of racing since I was a kid.More specifically open-wheel racing.One day,I bought a video game of a racing series called NASCAR and my life was never the same.Funny how things happen in this life sometimes.It was love at first play!(haha) I've got interested for that sport instantly and started to follow it,though there was very little coverage on that by brazilian media.That was way back in 2001,shortly after Dale Earnhardt Sr. passed away.But the coolest thing is that I found a new passion and also new friends! Friends from USA and even other countries!Friends that mean a lot to me as I'm sure I mean to them.Different ways of thinking,of seeing the life.Different backgrounds,different cultures.But also many things in common!We're always learning from each other.And what is life if not a constant learning? I share with them things about me and my country and also learn things about them and their countries.Even very interesting scientific methods to deal with things like cramps and burns (haha).One friend in particular is trying to turn me into a writer!I admit it's an interesting exercise for the mind and also for the sensitivity. I can't imagine my life without NASCAR racing.And mainly,I can't imagine it without my NASCAR NATION friends.Without the fun and the joy we share with each other in this place!We're so far away from each other and yet so close!These on-line friends are so important in my life as my off-line friends! And I hope I can make more and more NASCAR friends here and that our friendship will extend beyond the sport.It has been a wonderful experience to me and I hope it gets better and better! Well,that's it for now.Maybe we can meet here again.Who knows?
TALENT Is not measured by how many ominous family connections have supplied you with the best equipment nor is it by your ability to fast-talk your way into Hendrick Motorsports. Talent is, indeed measured by the ability of driver and crew to unite as one theory. It is measured by sheer grit and determination. While the likes of Gordon, Johnson, Stewart, Earnhardt and Petty have, indeed cascaded their way to the top of the racing ladder in the survival of the fittest and pure ability, as it goes without saying that GOD HIMSELF has entrusted theese men with the ability to race, it is not so with the likes of Dillon, Patrick, and Meanard, who were lifted up in carriage to the heights of competition and thus must prove their abilities on the speedway. Those kinds of drivers may commence to possess multitudes of talent, but only time itself will tell.

Sometime's you just have to ask yourself "Will I live to be 80?"I recently chose a new primary care physician. After two visitsand exhaustive lab tests, he said I was doing "fairly well" for my ageA little concerned about that comment I couldn't resist asking him, "Do youthink I will live to 80?" He Asked, "Do you smoke tobacco or drinkAlcoholic beverages?" 'No,' I replied. 'I don't do drugs either'. Then heasked 'Do you eat rib-eye steaks or barbecue ribs?'. I said 'No, my other doctorsaid all that red meat was unhealthy!'. Do you spend a lot of time in the sun like playing golf, boating, fishing or just relaxing?' 'No I don't ' I said. He asked'Do you gamble, drive fast cars, or have a lot of sex?'. 'No' I said. 'I don't do any of those things.'Then he looked at me and asked, 'Then why do you give a shit?'...... Author...Unknown
Life beckons, some respond, some get lost,
In a murky swampland of their own;
Always fearing to accept what's there,
Always searching for a better zone.
When strolling through the fields of their lives,
They throw away the wheat with the chaff;
Never allowing the good to thrive,
Never knowing tears can turn to laughs.
When life beckons, respond with a smile!
Happy is better than being blue.
Be willing to give, so others will know,
You care about them more than just you.
