A postcard from the Virginia International Raceway
At the VIR, my first car race! These guys drive for 13 hours! This is for the chapter [in the Muscular Christianity book] on motorsports ministry. Feels like one giant potluck dinner, with lots of men with really cool, fast cars. The Mazda Miata seems the biggest favorite overall. Learning lots about the significant differences between specific forms of car racing. One memorable quote: “NASCAR is all about money. This is about the love of racing, because we are a family!”
By the way, please do note the VIR photographer *insisted* I do “bunny ears” behind Dave and Tim, two of the volunteer fire fighters who serve this race. It was not my idea!
