Today is all about those who gave all (and the ones they left behind). My friend Pam lost her son Joshua (US Army) in 2007 in Iraq. It was my honor to get stuck for an hour in traffic at Riverside National Cemetery and make sure Joshua had flowers. https://t.co/16CE8ay55F
Once Shawn and I got done fitting/cutting/installing all the sheet metal around the hoist machine (3/16" plate is RIDICULOUSLY heavy!), now I'm supposed to play "electrician" and install all the conduit...WHAT? https://t.co/9DlSScTbRg
@ramfan1313 Somebody will know someone, who has a friend that makes the financial decisions for a company that can benefit from our sport. Talk about it to everyone!!!
@daystrk64 Last few years really have enjoyed down in Oceanside, Tamarack, Swami's, etc. Sunday went to Huntington
@FerdererMike Nice to hear from you, my racing hero! Hope your health is as good as can be, and give Barb a hug from her favorite unemployed Funny Car driver.
I hope you had a nice Easter. Saturday I got to see 4 hockey games (each kid had 2), and Sunday I finally got to surf, and, YES...(of course) we did the requisite Easter Egg Hunt (Layla insisted!) https://t.co/yif1w7KPgM
@KFIintheSKY I'm sure you were aware of the fatality on the 91 east last Friday. Maybe each Friday you can vector me the fastest route!!!
Friday traffic in SoCal always is tough, but 3 hours and 38 minutes to get home exceeds the time I've spent accelerating FOR MY ENTIRE NITRO CAREER! And...the view wasn't as cool. https://t.co/7XepJwRb2w
Today was the 1st time since 2006 I wasn't at an @NHRA National event. I was wiring an elevator when Funny Cars towed up to the lanes. I came home to this ... as if to take the sting off. Tomorrow I'll be working 8 hours OT during qualifying. Good luck to all! #campingworldnhra https://t.co/BK0C1IccbJ
14 years...wow! My baby, then "my little man", is firmly into adolescence. He's taking Honors Calculus, amongst other advanced classes, & I'm excited to see him navigate into adulthood. Happy Birthday, from "Daddy" (I guess that may not be cool any longer). I love you, Jason. https://t.co/sybayTIPBb
@LicataTom Thinking of taking it to road course at Willow Springs, maybe in March, and having some fun turning corners.
