After a fiery ordeal and intensive rebuild, the Donahoe Racing Super Duty finally rolled up to the Parker starting line. Yours truly had been slated to ride the first two laps in the third seat, giving up the seat to Jon Kantola for Lap 3. True to form, my guts didn't appreciate the lack of sleep that usually comes with going to the races. I felt horrible. The plans changed, and Jon got in for the first lap instead. I was glad for him, because those who go off the starting line are guaranteed to ride at least part of the race. If the truck breaks down, those slated to ride later laps may not get a ride at all. Jon had worked hard on the truck and on organizing the DR team logistics. Riding in the race would be a sweet reward for the long, hard effort that led up to it. I would ride the second lap if I felt up to it.
