Hello small town friendly,
Coming to you from Harris Speedway for another week of making laps…As always i hope everyone had a blessed week and said thanks for the little things in life we sometimes seem to forget..
This week we will be a little short on reporting from the track as i missed a week over prior commitment and also my level 5 monster is still under construction..i would like to say thank you to a few supporters who has helped me in the build of my new race car comimg soon…Twana Poole and my mom (Carmen Givens) thanks to the moon and back for all your support and hope to see you both at the track soon. Real fast i want to reach out to my readers about what racing means to me and the effects it could have on some young readers life…to me racing is the gateway to my freedom and my sanity ..It has introduced me to a whole different group of people to which i never knew and has brought me joy even if im not on the track. Basically I go there to escape the real world and without it I feel like I could easily be lost …let me tell a quick story of how that joy was almost taken away and had me close to walking away from the sport I love.
Few weeks ago i was at the track getting my car ready to go make some laps when a officer/ security came up to my car and started a conversation with me, which was fine but also i wss needing to finish up on the car as time was nearing to go on to the track..now I’ve known this officer for years and as everyone has already pointed my way (because he was still talking to me) he starts to say good luck on the track but turns aroumd to say let me take a picture of that gas can in the back of your car and loud enough to where people close by could hear..as i ask why a pic of my gas can he states loud enough that one such gas can wss stolen from the key largo store and it may match up to this can..now as i was not only embarrassed by the accusation but rightfully upset. (My car had been at the track all week and so had that gas can in the back hatch of it. Now the point of my story here is that sometimes we jump to conclusions based on things we should not…now my level5 racing is based upon my past and the things I’ve done I’m not proud of (stealing a gas can is not one of them) but we as humans do not have the right to judge anyone based on there past or present…we should always remember to sweep our own porch before another’s. Well after that incident happened I packed up my car and I left. I was crushed to the point of selling my car and never going back..
well readers i slept on it a ns prayed on it and decided to build an even faster car and go back to the one sport i enjoy…so to my race fans i tell you to never give up in life and never give in to others that want ro see you fail in life…follow your dream and never give in to failure…so i hope to see you all back at the track soon and below us this past week’s winners..oh yea this new car will have a big blue gas can om the hood as reminder to never give up..thanks for the encouragement (j.b.)…….see you at the finish line…
Your favorite driver,
BRUCE WAYNE. (LEVEL 5 RACING)
