Concord USA - August 1, 1998 Dear Wesley, With you aboard last night the Race For Kids #07 Monte Carlo had its best finish in weeks. Our qualifying effort didn't fare so well as we started in the 8th position. We quickly moved up into the 6th position as the car ran pretty good for the first 15 laps or so. The car started losing its handling ability afterwards but we were able to hold off the competitors behind us until we caught a fortunate caution. On the restart I got by another car and moved up into the 5th postion. We were still a bit slower than the cars behind us but I was able to fight them off as the outside lane seemed to be a bit quicker. on the 72nd lap we were able to get a good run off of turn one and moved to the outside of Rickey Hendrick and managed to get by him going into the tri-oval out of the short shoot. Guy Harris moved in behind me. Harris beat and banged on my bumper and was able to pull up beside me but again we were able to hold him off. We had our first top 3 finish in 4 week finishing just behind Mike Herman Jr. It was double points night and we only lost 4 points to Mike leaving us a scant 6 points behind him in the championship race. It was frustrating Im sure to the drivers behind me as they seemed to have a better car but being in the heat of a points race with it being double points night we had no choice but to guard the bottom and drive into the turns a bit deeper than we are normally comfortable doing. I appreciate you having the courage to climb aboard the Race For Kids Monte Carlo last night and working with our team. It is the courage of kids like you that provides me the inspiration I need to strive and be the best I can. I will archive the memory of dedicating this race to you as I consider it an honor. I hope you will continue to keep up with our team for the remainder of the season, the best place to do this is probably on the Concord Motorsports Website at www.concordspeedway.com. I tend to get a bit behind on my site as the season gets longer but please make sure you stop by www.lancemoss.com and www.raceforkids.org and sign our guestbooks.
