Happy but depressed

So last weekend I embarked on a journey of epic proportions. I went to support Cyrus Martinez for the opportunity at getting his license at the Pro Am finals.

On they way to the venue, we got into an accident. After driving for 14 hours, I decided to let Cyrus take over the wheel. 10 minutes in the drive, and we get rear ended by a driver.















The trailer wasn't badly damaged but it still looks terrible....

That is not the part the depresses me...

It's been a while since I had been at a Formula Drift event without being involved in the hosting part... I actually had time to look around in the pits and actually interact with some of the drivers...

It seems like there are two personalities to every driver. There is the one you perceive when they are driving and there is the truth.. It really sucks to hear the "reality" because at times, there is nothing I can do about it.... I hope someone with a heart and a good soul can actually do something for them because it is really tough to know certain things about these drivers without the ability to help them the way they should be helped....

Here is shot of cyrus at Seattle as we are leaving the venue... I drove for 20 hours... Not bad for an old man...















Hopefully, our resident photographer (aka The Melonator) will send me more photos to post...
