But I Only Tried it Once!

My thoughts after my first track dayÖ.
Well first off thatís all my thoughts are about since then. What the is this! I feel the track in my blood and my veins seem to be pulling my skin, which is telling my eyes that if what youíre seeing is not the entrance to the track, youíre looking at the wrong thing. Iím tellen ya man I got to have it. Iím pretty sure you could do heroine one time and not be instantly addicted, but not this s*it. What I did right, all I did wrong, how am I so fast, whyís everybody else so much so much faster?
Iím driving my car yesterday and I notice Iím trying to shift my for the corners in a tight bucket seat (it donít work). I was at the casino and found myself picking my lines through the crowd and tables as I walked around. Brake, match rpm, downshift, move your , look thru the turnÖ. Just to make my way around a craps table!
I donít know if I can take it. But I HAVE to. My body, mind and heart all belong there. I am an instant, hopeless addict.
Anyone know of a good 12-step programs for track addicts? :/:

AWESOME!! I am going to my first track day on the 7th. Since I signed up...ALL I CAN THINK ABOUT! I hope it is everything and more that I expect. Judging from your commentary...it will be! Got my leathers ordered for rent, today. I am sooo excited. Even more so now!

Based on the conversation we had as you were leaving, I'd say you were indeed a hopeless addict!

There is no more hope for you...just accept it and let it take over your life
