Last week was last week. I've got to remember that. What we did last week was good for our race team, but we've got to keep doing that. ...We went to Bristol with a fast enough car where we could have won. ...We think we can do more. We've just got to go prove it. You can't just sit here and talk about it.
The guys on the Interstate Batteries Chevrolet did a good job today. We just worked on race setup in the first practice, and then we worked n qualifying setup in the second practice, so I am pretty happy with our efforts.
Paul and I tried to write from a place that was real and honest. Maybe the issue of race isn't the same as it was, but it's still here. We tried to dig into the soul and find the place where it was coming from.
I came up here for my first Formula Atlantic race in October of 1974 and watched that car win the race, and I thought, 'Man, there is nothing better than that,' ... I dreamed that when I got to Formula One I could drive a car like that.
As difficult as we struggle to put a lot of cars on the race track, the ones that we do have are first-rate, high-quality teams and our product works well for a very entertaining race as well as a reliable and safe race.
I thought about how disappointed I was. I would admit that after that race I was broken in half. It took a little while, but I settled down and got back to working out and just using it as fuel for the fire.
Although Brother Derek will be the lone speed, at some point, you always get pressure in a race. Whether we catch him or not, it's about this horse moving forward, it's about him learning a little bit more, and I think he's going to do that.
It really hasn't sunk in yet, ... To do it at this level, with this team, in this kind of race we're in. I'm just glad I could help this team. They gave me an opportunity. They had the faith to bring me up here.
I grew it out specifically for the race. This feels fantastic. It feels like you're about to die out on the course, but boy, nothing feels better than finishing down Main Street. It's a beautiful hill, the church bell is ringing, everyone is cheering. It's wonderful.
But it's one race. I've got 12 races this year. If it doesn't happen it's not going to be the end of the world for me. The gods have to be a little bit on your side. The race could be cancelled. I'm not setting all my hopes on this race.
Summers committed the cardinal sin against the academic hard left. He expressed politically incorrect views regarding gender, race, religion, sexual preference and the military. . . . In the minds of at least some vocal members of the Faculty of Arts and Sciences, expressing such politically incorrect views is the academic equivalent of provoking Islamic extremists by depicting Prophet Mohammad in a political cartoon.
