My opinion on fuel costs is, IT"S TOO DAMN HIGH!
From what I'm hearing, the oil companies need the money. LOL
I do have one advantage, Parker does share the costs with me, since he is in the workforce now.
Also my racing operation is very inexpensive to maintain.
Thats the beauty of bracket racing, it's as expensive as one makes it.
That being said, the things that I don't do is hunt & fish, I don't own a boat or a motorcycle, I don't have any other hobbies but my kids, wife, & racing. This does allow me to budget racing better than some.
Good luck to you & Kelly as well this season.
