Brad Coleman's blog notes - A NASCAR follow-up

Here's some thoughts from Brad, our formerly known as Nationwide driver, who just today qualified for Sunday's race in Michigan (first time, ever)...

"I really love driving racecars. I am more comfortable at 200 mph than I am sitting on the couch. Every now and then though, you get into situations like I was in at Watkins Glen. It was a good re-start and the two cars in front of me split in different directions. When they did I found myself launching off the No. 9 car. Next thing I know I am eight feet in the air and that is not where you are supposed to be in a racecar. Two wheels came down and finally all four hit the ground. My car appeared to be toast but believe it or not, it was still drivable. We had to come into the pits and fix some of the bent up sheet metal and parts of my car were totally gone. While I as in the pits getting the car fixed, I thought about those who have to fight Lupus. Kind of like in the race, I had to keep going regardless of what was in front of me. We came back with only a partial car, worked our way through the field, and brought the No. 27 Carino’s/Lupus car to a top 10 finish! Never, never give up out there, no matter what you face in your life!! I am lucky to get to race for a living, and I am also fortunate to be able to have the chance to help others like we did this weekend.”
