Here's to making progress. By day, the first picture shows that Jeremy has made some progress since the pic in our last blog. He is slowly building the frame for his late model dirt track car.
It's dark outside. The garage is dimly lit too, but the work must go on to complete the car. You can see some added metal to the car in this picture.
Remember, this is a process.
The dirt track cars have to be built from the ground up in many cases and in pieces. If you have the money to purchase one that is ready to go, by all means, do it. If not, you buy the parts and you build your own.
It's a lot of work, but when the finished product comes together, it's something to be proud of. When you go to the track you will see dirt track auto racers who have it all. They have the beautiful huge trailers to pull their cars. They have the best looking cars and lots of parts waiting in the wings to replace anything that is damaged. But what you see here is how many dirt track racers get their starts. They do it themselves. In Jeremy's case, he has an amazing family and some very loyal friends that come together to help him get the cars together.
If you want to race, make sure you set aside some time and money because you will need both. The reward? Sitting on the dirt track just waiting for the heat race to begin, hearing the roar of the engines, and eventually, being the one who crosses that finish line first!
