I wanna be a race car driver

I haven’t been very good about blogging on my adventures lately. Actually, I haven’t been very good at keeping up on anything.

I just spent 2 weeks at the Chicago Auto Show as a precision driver for Toyota. I wish it was as glamorous as it sounds. I essentially drove around in circles for 12 hours a day for 12 days. (By day 2 I was so dizzy I threw up).

I have done some precision driving for Camaro and Corvette, but this time I was working with some real racers. It was a little intimidating, but also very cool. My boss was actually a Formula One racer and was recognized non-stop throughout the show. You would never know from his humble attitude and quiet demeanor.

After looking at my taxes for this past year and how much I’m going to have to pay in, I realized that racing school is a tax write-off. Guess what’s going on my bucket list for the year? Vrrrroooom vrrrroooom……


About strokeofred

I am from Kansas and I have traveled all over the world. I am an artist, and I have a business brain. I love skirts and tennis shoes. I like to get dirty and ride motorcycles. I am sensitive and I can be mean. I love nature, and believe in protecting it. I love to laugh, and feel better after a good cry. I can be stubborn and impatient. I am constantly growing. I am open and free. I look to be inspired and love to inspire. I play guitar and secretly want to play drums. I have a puppy that brings me great joy. I love hugs, cuddling, holding hands...and wrestling. I love the mountains and the beach. I have to make a pilgrimage to the ocean at least twice a year to balance myself. I believe in balance in all things. Traveling is a passion, and meeting interesting people from all over the world is the perk! I have small town values, and big city dreams. I love beer, hate wine. I believe that what you put out comes back. I believe and live by the belief of treating others like you want to be treated. I enjoy stimulating conversation, and a good sense of humor. Caffeine is my drug of choice, and coffee over chess or good conversation is my luxury. I am strong but sometimes feel small. I strive to be my authentic me.
