My life changed over seven years his life has changed over two. He's getting pulled at from every direction, but I think he's handling it good. I don't see where it's changed him at all. Maybe it's confused him because he gets hit with (stuff) he don't want to worry about. He wants to do all the same stuff he always wanted to do. He just loves to race.
You're either in it or you're not. When it (wreck) starts happening, there is either going to be a hole for you or a way you can wiggle through. But more than likely, if it's not there, you can't just make a hole. It's not like you can cut left or cut right and cut left that quick and miss it at those speeds. You either miss it or you don't.
It really boils down to what kind of role model you are going to be. You are either going to be someone people, especially kids, can look up to, or you are going to be someone their parents like to point at and say, 'Don't be like him' I'd much rather be on the front page of the paper for winning a race than being arrested for something.
I can't blame the drivers for making the move, and I can't blame the owners for being upset. Keep in mind, this ain't like the real world where you work somewhere and you can stay 40 years. Being able to see where you are going just a few years ahead is a pretty cool deal, and it doesn't happen too often in any sport, much less stock car racing.
