The Big Day

Yesterday was the big day! We drove the 2 hours to the middle of the desert to pick up our new Trophy Lite Race Truck. Yep, my husband, the jack-of-all-trades, will be racing this little beauty. In the day and a half that we've had it, I've had all sorts of questions thrown at me. Everything from the typical, "Are you scared for his life???" to, "What color is it?"( Ah yes, the important questions in life!) Here's what I do know about it: The current color is white; it soaks up bumps, holes and whoops like a champ; it rides like a Caddy; the wife was too scared to drive and crash it on its first maiden voyage and it's already held 8 friends and family members in it's passenger seat. And if I can get mushy and girly for a minute while talking about a race truck, it is the support of friends and family members that is making this journey into new racing territory an exciting and fun adventure for the both of us. We look forward to everything this next year holds for us, may it be big or small.
As we were towing the truck from it's "birthplace", El Centro, to it's first test run in Plaster City I commented to Sean that we have a very good life. It may seem to some that we do a lot of grandiose adventures and have taken up some dangerous sports, but above all, we are thankful for our relationships in life and are thrilled that our diverse activities have allowed us to meet so many amazing people. So add racing to the list of Lorenzen activities and we look forward to seeing your face in the crowd cheering us on, or on our crew, doing the dirty work!
