 Racing Goals
To have fun and maybe win a Points Championship.
 
 Other Interesting Team Information
As funny as it may seem to some, I really had no idea on what number I wanted. One night as my wife and I were watching our favorite movie, Days of Thunder, she jokingly suggested 46 like Cole Trickle, and that sounded as good as any number.
