Skip Barber National – NJMP

July 19, 2010
I was very excited to get back into a Skip Barber National car and try my second National weekend. Since New Jersey Motorsports Park is only about two hours from our home, it was nice not to have to hang out at airports for once. My dad and I drove down there on Wednesday night so we could be there for the lapping sessions on Thursday. Unfortunately, I had a fever of about 103 degrees and my body felt like garbage. Even though my mom wanted me to stay home like a little baby and take medicine all day, I was like, “No Way!!!” because I wanted to race!

F2000 Test at Blackhawk Farms

July 14, 2010
On Thursday, July 8, 2010, my dad & I finally got to meet the people from Arms Up Motorsports. We went out to South Beloit, IL, to Blackhawk Farms Raceway, so I could test an F2000 car. I spent all day Thursday getting a new seat poured and getting fitted for the car. The seat came out awesome and I started to feel more comfortable in the car. On Friday morning, me, Dad, Steve Welk my coach, and Gregg & Brent Borland met at the track and began our day of testing.

Summer Regional Series – VIR – May 1-2, 2010

May 03, 2010
Since this was one of the rare times when a race was close enough to drive to, my parents and I made the 8 hour drive to VIR. My mom did most of the driving and I think she qualified on pole! A couple of times I felt like putting on my helmet while we were weaving through Washington, D.C. traffic. Somehow she avoided all the cops and we made it there in one piece, whew!

Southern Series – Sebring, FL – April 8-10, 2010

April 13, 2010
Since I hadn’t been in a race car since February, Steve Welk figured I would definitely need some extra practice laps to break the rust off. Somehow he managed to convince my mom to let me bail on school for two days this time! So my dad & I flew out on Wednesday night so we could get to Sebring Intl. Raceway first thing Thursday morning because we had a lot of work to do. I got out on track early Thursday and lucky for me, it only took a couple of laps to get back into shape. With Steve’s help, we continued getting quicker through Thursday’s and Friday’s practice sessions.
