I am really still completely overwhelmed with this experience, and even more than that, I'm in awe at what it means to me and how powerful it was to do this with my dad. I know I am blessed and for that I am eternally grateful.

The final RESULTS were just posted and we placed 48th overall and 7th in our class (out of 86 vintage cars racing).
A big CONGRATULATIONS to everyone who participated, especially the service crews, the race organizers and staff, the medics, the timers, the police, the local people in the villages, the children, the fans, especially my DAD who brought me here for the second year in a row, my dear family and friends, and everyone who helped this year - it was a monstrous success!
I will be updating the blog with pictures and many more stories in the next two weeks so stay tuned. You can browse all pictures posted from the 2007 race blog (and a few from 2006) right HERE.
As the Mexican highway signs say,
"Maneje con precaucion. Tu familia te espera."
(Drive with precaution. Your family awaits you.)
Happy Dia de los Muertos!

El Jefe's broken control arm
Tonight is the final drivers' meeting and celebration and I must quickly jump in the shower and go.
I will blog when I get back to the states and post the pictures in the following week or two.....there are many stories to tell.
Thanks to everyone for their prayers and kind thoughts for us to get here safely with smiles on our faces - we were successful!
