Game of Survival and Happiness: Putting Year 27 in the Rearview Mirror

People say “nobody likes you when you’re 23.” Take a step in my shoes, 27 can make a strong case of being the age nobody really likes you. The number 27 lives in infamy in music due to the large number of artists who perished and of course, the number that’s synonymous to Gilles Villeneuve, …

Back to Square One: My Florida Speedweeks Venture

Some things remain the same and other things change. Best way to describe my 18 days in Florida with 13 of those were racing related. It’s Florida, man!
