As a side note, my sister will be in Australia working this weekend. She emailed me to let me know that the race will start at 3:30AM Monday morning in Melbourne. So if you are reading my blog and will be watching there, stay up really late or get up really early to catch my race!


  1. So happy you are here in St. Pete, Charlie!!! Look very forward to cheering you on this weekend!! Will you be at the parade tonight??

  2. Hi Charlie!

    I enjoyed rooting for you today!

  3. Just watched the race...we DVR'ed it since we were out all day! Made it so exciting to watch seeing you there. Sorry about the tire, but like you said learn for next time. Going to look into heading up to Sonoma in August. Best of luck with the rest of the season! Hugs - Theresa, Rob and Emma

  4. Hey Charlie! Great job qualifying for the 500! It'll be great to watch you compete there, particularly being the first licensed D-Driver to participate! Missed you at the FFL conference last year and am not sure will be able to make it there this year, but hopefully we'll get a chance to say hello before long. My wife and I will be volunteering with the ADA on Race Day and will be at the Novo booth, so maybe there'll be a chance there - despite all the race activity you'll be doing. Good luck, my friend!
