I cracked open the throttle lifting my front wheel off the ground just enough for her to start screaming “let me off this thing!” After the well enjoyed ride to the check-in area, it was time to line up for the race. In cross country racing, all the riders in each class line up in a field, each class in it’s own row with their engines off. The flagman will call out “Ten seconds” telling all the racers to get ready. A few seconds later, the flagman will wave his flag, all the racers will start their bikes and race to be the first one into the woods. The racers start a row at a time until all the racers are in the

After signing Holly to the then World Wrestling Federation in 90s, McMahon took it upon himself to get to know his new signee personally, something which he liked to do at the time. After a number of lengthy conversations with Holly, Vince learned that he had a passion for NASCAR, and so the Spark Plug gimmick was born. While performing as Spark Plug, Bob Holly would regularly appear in vignettes alongside a custom made, fully functional race car, which had been commissioned by the company. After the gimmick was abandoned and Holly was repackaged, McMahon gifted him the car, ensuring years of loyal duty from the perpetual
We need to find a new way to inform teens about the dangers of driving, and I propose we do this through showing them in a safe environment. One privately operated example is called B.R.A.K.E.S, which is an abbreviation of Be Responsible and Keep Everyone Safe. The program is taught by retired race car drivers, and has been available in fifteen states including North Carolina. Students in the course do several activities including: accident avoidance, a distraction exercise, wheel drop-off recovery, panic stop exercise, and a car control and recovery exercise (“About”). The program aims to be fun for teens, allowing them to go way too fast, skid, and learn how dangerous driving distracted is, in a safe environment.
In March of 1993, there was a NASCAR race in Atlanta in which my dad and four of his friends decided to take a road trip to. The weather predicted for the race was supposed to be cold and rainy. My dad was the kind of person to prepare for anything, so he took gear for rain and cold weather. My dad, pulling a pop up camper behind his Chevy Silverado, met his four friends in Chattanooga. They finally got to Atlanta, where they set up in the middle green of the raceway.
“For me, … this moment was the war. The war was and is reality for me” (Knowles 40). Devon’s involvement in the war forces Gene to think only of it.

Citizens of Italy are unified when their national soccer team competes in tournaments that occur every four years, such as the World Cup or the European Championship. When the national team has won a game, cheerful Italians flood the streets in celebration, but when there is a loss the nation’s people become upset and begin to criticize the coaches and players. However, the majority of the time, Italian citizens along with other soccer fans around the world, are more involved with the club competitions that run from August until May. Club rivalry games are taking very seriously with crowds of fans waving huge banners and organizing chants against the other team (“Calcio: The Sport That's Italy's Heart and Soul”). Although Italy does not have the variety of popular sports as the United States does, the Italians all come together to share their love for their favorite sport.
It was time for the four by one hundred meter relay. With my relay team stretched,warmed up, and ready to go, we headed towards the stadium where we would race against the fastest girls in the nation. Intimidated but not deterred we headed out of Tent City and into the gates of Turner Stadium. Knowing this was my last race I would run with my close friends and relay team, being it 's the last race of the season and we all weren’t going to be in the same age group next year, I had a whole new mind set. I was constantly thinking, “we have to make top ten because we can make top ten.” “We have the times, we have the strength, we have the speed, we just need to have the guts to walk in there like we are going to shred the track into pieces.
The race that I am running in is the Boy’s Frosh-Soph at 3:30, which means we are warming up now. Following a much longer than usual warm up run around the park, although I was comfortable with it, our group sat in a circle and went through our stretches. A few senior runners came into the circle for speeches, including an attempt at a motivational speech, and a campaign “vote for me” speech for Homecoming Queen. As soon as we finished our stretches, we walked over to the starting line, where we did additional stretches such as high-knees, butt kicks, and strides. Completing the additional stretches, we were ready to
