His son, Brett Fincher, has been a life long friend.So, when he called saying he had been having some pain in his chest and was going in for a stress test, we all got pretty concerned about him. Last week, Brett underwent a heart cath at the Kansas Heart Hospital.
Dear God, there is a lot of power in one of these cars!
The earth shook, my ears hurt and the next thing I knew Aubrey was flying down the track. I think she drove across the line going about 112 mph. So, by this time we are pretty hooked after Aubreys race and excited to watch Derrick in his dragster. This is the real deal with the parachute that pops out the back and everything.
I was pretty excited when I saw Derrick shoe horn himself inside the cockpit of this miniature rocket and put his helmet on.
So our tour started out with me doing some investigative work on a bond skip I had last week in Pratt County. At this point, I had not yet developed my "need for speed." We rolled into Great Bend about 45 minutes before the races began and found the Swineharts.
I didnt find my person, but we had left plenty early enough to drive around and take a tour of St. Although I wanted to ask 40,000 questions, I knew they were all getting ready for their races.
