Race 3

Leading through the esses at 90 mph

Racing a formula car is

Today was the last race of the season.
Qualified 6th, finished 5th.
No podium, but I'm proud of the result.

Made a sweet pass
and was running 4th at one time.
Was racing against some quality guys today,
some instructors and ex-pros;
some whom I even beat.

When I began 7 months ago,
I was 15 seconds off the track record.
Today, I got it down to 2.4.
My body is still buzzing.
