Why do you love racing? I have raced cars since i was 4 years old. When I graduated high school I was racing as a hobby. It kept me out of serious trouble. Taking a hobby you enjoy and turning it into your life is not something everyone gets to do, but I was able to do this with my father and friends which adds to the love part of it. Drag racing has been very good to me.
