  1. Great job Doug! Not many people know how hard it is to stay on top of the racing game we choose to compete in. It’s a grind and it speaks volumes for the effort/talent that fans are watching and competitors are racing against. Some hate those who are dominant (i.e. NE Patriots, Kyle Busch or Jeff Gordon back in his hay day) but they overlook the pure beauty of maintaining achieving AND maintaining a high level of performance for an extended period. That’s something that anyone in any game for a long period of time has respect for and appreciates.
