This is Breast Cancer Month and NHRA didn’t let us down.  Alexis Dejoria, offering free mammograms to all women.  I spoke with Allison McCormick. She said they had a great turnout. I think it’s a great thing they are doing.

I had the opportunity to talk to Jim Dunn. He was resting in his Van. He invited me in. We are both retired Firemen. I asked if he missed it. He replied “No, I don’t think about it much.” I then laughed and said, I’m talking about Racing.  He laughed and said he didn’t miss driving that much but is still excited about being involved in the sport.
