Getting in our grooveThursday, April 17, 2014

How are all you crazy fans doing? I know this MSR team is doing great. We are two races into the season and Scotty has been to two finals this year. John also went to the finals at the Charlotte 4 wide event. We have been really pleased with the way everyone has been riding this year. I think we are all really getting in our groove and it’s going to be an exciting year to say the least.

As all of you know by now I signed a deal with Kandy Magazine to race the Charlotte 4 wide event. I was really ecstatic to bring those guys to the track with me and it being my home track was just a bonus. We had a great outing. I tested the week before the event and all the passes I made were in the 6 second range. So I felt pretty good coming into the event. After the second pass on Friday I was pleased with how I ran. I was qualified 9th with a 6.87 and Matt was 5th with a 6.87. So Pro Stock Motorcycle is ending up having some tight fields on race day, which makes it exciting for us as drivers and definitely for the fans. The drivers and crew chiefs definitely have to do their job to get some win lights.

Over the break we had from Gainesville to Charlotte I decided to take a last minute trip with my nieces and nephew. They had a vacation planned for Disney and they wanted their aunt to go with them. I hopped on a plane Friday morning and headed to Orlando. I spent the next two days having a blast with them and riding all kinds of crazy thrilling rides and of course enjoying a little warm sunshine. My favorite ride turned out to be the AeroSmith roller coaster. They blasted some AeroSmith while taking you through loops and turns and upside down craziness. I am such an adrenaline junky so it was very fitting for me. I had to end my trip on Sunday while they stayed the rest of the week. We had a blast and I am so glad that I got to join them on vacation and spend just a little quality time with my babies.

Lately on my days away from the racetrack I have been spending a lot of time working at the Dermatology office. Nothing like a part-time job with a bunch of girls you have been friends with for over 10 years. Some of you that follow me on Instagram think we don’t do a lot at work but we really do. We see a large number of patients and do surgeries all while some days we get to act a little crazy. Only for a few minutes, though. As the doctor says as long as his girls get the work done then its ok with him.

All in all the last 4 weeks have been a blast for me. We put the Kandy Magazine deal together with one of my great buddies Bill Nychay. Kandy Magazine had a beautiful representation at the track this past weekend. I got to hang out with 3 beautiful girls and I am sure all my crew guys and all the guys at the track didn’t mind either. The opportunity that Kandy Magazine gave me was amazing and I couldn’t thank all those guys enough for this. Dave, Ron, Steve, Jason, Bill, Claudia, Laurie, and Eischen, thank you so much. I hope we can do again really soon.

To all my fans, go check out Kandy Magazine. Support the people that support me and this team. Until next time… Keep your dreams real and focus on them. You never know when they are going to come true.

Now we have another 4 week break and I really don’t know what I am going to do with all this time. I am sure there will be plenty of housework and yard work to do the next 4 weeks. I will keep everyone up to date by Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. I am trying really hard to put some things together for the next couple of races because as you all know I love going fast and playing on Sunday!
