So far this school year, I hadn’t been absent at all. I was very glad on Friday because I finally got to miss a day of school! My dad and I flew down to Charlotte, North Carolina and met my coach Steve Welk there. Then we had an hour and a half drive to our hotel. We got to bed pretty early and were ready to go early Friday morning. On Friday we had two 40 minute practice sessions in which I spent most of the time learning the track. The track was kind of small, had no grip, and had a lot of really hard corners. By the end of the day I felt fairly comfortable in the car.
