Hey race fans, I’m long overdue on this message. Having not posted in over month, I am sure some rumors have surfaced concerning my whereabouts.
First of all- I am not dead. I have not assumed room temperature. In fact, I have never been more alive and well. In fact, I don’t have the time- between my regular job as news director/ sports director at a local radio station, radio play-by-play guy for my high school alma mater, husband, and soccer, karate and band dad.
Secondly, I have not ceased to be a NASCAR fan. My passion for what some call the “Left Turn League’ is just as vibrant as ever. Unlike some, I actually think the racing has been pretty damn good this year.
Here’s what has happened. I have become a very busy man, and I may also be on the verge of becoming an adoptive father. If you’ve been through that experience, you know how time consuming that can be.
The truth is, I can no longer keep up the rigors of this labor of love called Bump Drafts. Therefore, I am pulling it in to the garage, and putting it up for sale. It pains me to do it, but I know that it is right.
I am not going away, though. As some of you may already know, I have joined Patrick Reynolds in becoming a regular weekly contributor at allleftturns.com. I am now working for the esteemed Joe Donatelli and my musings can now be seen over there every Tuesday. Joe’s a great guy, and I like what he’s doing with the website, and I’m honored to him, Patrick, and Jay W. Pennell.
On the way out, I have a few thanks. Thank you to Patrick Reynolds, John “Dawg” Chapman, Jeremy T. Sellers and Miss Mustang Jackie for joining me in this venture, lending your perspectives and talents. You all are more than teammates, you are friends. I valued your continued friendship.
Thank you to my wife, Lynnae, and my children, Hannah and Jonathan. You are my inspiration. Lynnae you have also been oh so helpful in the launch and design and maintenance of this site. I couldn’t have done it without you.
Thanks to you, fellow race fans, for coming here and joining the conversation. You too, have been inspirational, and it’s great to call you all friends.
Well, it’s time to sign out. I’ve truly enjoyed the ride. See you trackside, and until then, keep it off the walls.
