Our car is the color of our Canadian flag as it is a tribute car to all the women and men in our armed forces. It is our way of giving back to those that served. Having Champion on board with all their resources for the 2018 season would help us get out to more races and car shows to say thank you to our service people and vets. We race both in Canada and the USA. I have been hooked on drag racing since I was a kid. Our biggest triumph was when my son drove our car one year and won Rookie of the Year at Grand Bend Motorplex in 2012. Our biggest challenge is to fund the racing,as most of the funding comes out of my back pocket. But it is worth it just to say thank you for your service. The best part is when the kids sit in the car with big smiles on their faces. I know I have done my job. Hopefully that smiling face will grow up to love our sport just as much as I do.
