Someone once said, “Time is not measured by clocks but by the moments.” It seems like lately there is just not enough time in the day. There are a lot of wonderful moments of our lives that we all treasure. Especially as Mothers Day approaches we remember a time that has since passed, but realize that as parents we must let our children go and become a part of the world on their own. That is the most difficult part of being a parent. My daughter will soon be entering her teen years and I can remember a time when almost every moment was spend with my daughter, but as they develop into their own person their activities, sports and friends become a larger part of their life. Before you know it my daughter, along with many other children, will be preparing for college. It is so true that our time with our family is not measured by clocks but by moments. As time passes and we have less time with our family members it is then that we remember those moments more and more.
As far as D.R.A.W. goes, we are remembering our last event, the D.R.A.W. Florida Golf tournament that took place prior to the NHRA Gatornationals held in Gainesville, Florida, at Ironwood Golf Course. This event was well attended by professional racers, industry members and sportsman racers. In the end a highly competitive drag racing sportsman team comprised of Jeff Atkinson, Steve Cohen, Mickey Whaley, and Jeff Strickland won the event for the second year. I am sure this group is still basking in the glory of the win along with their many trophies on the wall from NHRA sportsman wins.
We are now preparing for the next big DRAW event that will take place in June, the annual D.R.A.W. auction that will take place in conjunction with the NHRA Torco Nationals held in Chicago, Illinois. The DRAW Auction will take place on Saturday, June 7 from 3:30 to 6:30 p.m. for the silent auction and starting at 7:30 p.m. for the live auction hosted by none other than Bob Frey and Alan Reinhart. This pair is truly entertaining to watch. So, don’t miss out of on the fun if you will be attending the NHRA Torco Nationals this June.
