The racin’ gods – a series of race fan fables.

At the Carolina Dodge Dealers 400 in Darlington S.C. on March 16, 2003, something so special occurred it deserved a special article.  Many were written by so many writers who at heart are race fans.  So I also wrote one titled:
”The racin’ gods had a poker game & smiled on the real race fan”.  

I had the title before Ricky ever finished his victory lap and had most of it written in my mind before we ever left the track.  It was extremely popular with the fans.  Some wrote to tell me they cried when they read it & others told me they laughed the whole way thru it. 

Then at the Last Labor Day Southern 500,  something special happened again and I realized that the racin’ gods had to have another poker game.  At the Last Fall Rockingham race once again, something special happened.  So I wrote a third article. 

I realized that this would be a continuing title for articles when something so special occurs that it can only be attributed to the racin’ gods. 

One simple tribute to something special has ended up being a fable that’s next chapter will come when the racin’ gods decide. 
Hope ya’ll enjoy the chapters that I have written so far.

Some Fan comments on the racin' gods fables:
..just want to thank you for a fantastic article.  Certainly puts a new spin on things.  I am glad the racing gods and the boys didn't take Monday off for the Busch race which was almost as exciting.
Thank you Camille for the compliment!
