It was hard to believe I was headed to University of Michigan to watch the Wolverines play Akron in football. It was my first time going to the Big House. Our tickets came late, we had to print off four copies to get in . We got there so early we tailgated with some students. Then went to buffalo wild wings for drinks and to use the bathroom before we went in the stadium.
When the residents of the rural farming community of Wrongberight, Virginia, want an accurate weather report, they call one of their neighbors, Charlie Jones, since he has never been wrong once, in forty years. On Monday he forecast intermittent summer rainstorms throughout the week and a ten-hour deluge for Friday, that would dump eight addition inches of rain, to the already, saturated farmer’s fields and woodlands. In addition, he suggest that the residents cancel their plans for Saturday and stay home since the storm on Friday was a prelude to the tempest that would strike Wrongberight, early Saturday night
Just a few months after I got my license I was driving my friend Kylee from the school to the softball field so we could warm up before our game. On the way down to the field on the dirt road I heard a loud noise and knew something had just been messed up. I get out of my car and saw a huge dent in the side, I had hit a post. About three months later just after school had gotten out, my car was put into the shop and I was borrowing my grandma’s car.
My team and I had to have him sign papers as well as go over the whole event. We had a deadline to meet, and if it was not met we would have no performance, low ticket sells for the month, and a very upset management. I worked 182 hours in the month of September to make sure we reached our goal. That proves that I work hard for my job and I will go to any length to get my work

dea” Mitch Walker,host of the Monday Night Results Show on Performance Motorsports Network and longtime NASCAR fan who has been involved in racing since the 60s and 70s says it all started when NASCAR let Jeff Gordon into the chase following controversy surrounding the end of the Richmond race in 2013 where Clint Bowyer intentionally spun his car out in order to cause a caution so that team mate Brian Vickers could pit which kept Gordon out of the chase only to be reinserted later by NASCAR CEO Brian France and that by making the change for Gordon ,”Brian France opened the door for the circus that erupted.” Walker goes on to point out a fact ,that Busch was injured in an Xfinity Series race (if you are not familiar with NASCAR,Xfinity in the second tier series) and that it would be different if Busch had been injured in a Sprint Cup Series race and that because of the fact that Busch was injured in an Xfinity race he should not be eligible for the chase where as if he had been injured in a cup race “sure,let him race his way in.” Walker also brings up a point that i echo and that is,a lot of fans are not in favor of drivers “stepping down” from Sprint Cup to Xfinity or to Camping World Truck Series as those series are for young drivers to get acquainted with the machines before heading to Sprint Cup Series racing and that by drivers like Busch going down to the lower tier series it is taking chances away from the drivers who are regulars in those series such as Ryan Reed,
On a cold, frosty, snow cover night in November at Welcome Home Stadium, was when my life changed. That night, two teams played for the chance to call themselves champions of 6th-grade football. All game, my team and I battled against the mighty Wilmington Hurricanes. We fought all game to win and finally we got the ball back with less than under a minute left and down by 4 points. The crowd was quieter than a church mouse as my coaches huddled us up during a timeout, and in that timeout, my coaches looked to me for answers.
Dirt Bike Catastrophe Some four years ago on a small loop road, county road 355, hidden somewhere in the weeds was a convolution maze of dirt bike trails. It couldn’t have been but six months since my step brother, Austin and I started riding dirt bikes daily. We were nothing short of motocross eligible teenagers, jumping feet off the ground, sliding every turn, and being so dirty at the end of the day that two showers were necessary. All of these things changed very suddenly in a wreck that changed our lives.
There is no wind in Arizona is 116 degrees and the heat is brutal. Yesterday when all we went to the mountain that is close from my daughter house and we took a few picture and run to the car. The little breeze we felt it was when we got to the top of the mountain however we all run to the car maybe we heard a few noises and we all thought they were snakes. I don’t know it that was true. My grandson wants to do hiking but it was impossible with the heat so we travel in the car.
Never did I think about why they fought with Briar, or why Briar would come back from his friends house at eleven in the afternoon wearing different clothes than what he started out with. The door slammed open cracking through my thoughts like lighting bringing me out of my scattered mind and snapping me into cold reality. Briar Bursts out of the
A very restless night into a rushed morning, my nerves were on edge, I zipped up my boots and ran out the door. The drive went quickly; I felt prepared as I pulled into the parking lot. The Lethal Fence looked like a normal chain-link fence just taller the razor wire along the top letting it be known that escape is no easy task. I walked through security and I was given my work assignment.

The book I got from my grandpa When I was like 7 my grandpa brought a book to me from his trip to detroit. It was a book about cars. It was like my favorite book for a long time because I liked cars a lot when I was growing up. The book was about a bunch of different chevrolet cars and who made them and designed them and stuff like that. Thats why I was so interested in the book.
Several years ago, I found myself riding in the passenger seat of my family’s car, riding west towards Canton, Mississippi. At around four o-clock that morning, my mom had received a phone call from the hospital regarding her father, who had been admitted that morning after accidentally overdosing on his numerous medications. A few minutes later, we were on the road to Mississippi. When we finally arrived in Mississippi, there were several cars in my grandad’s parking lot. My mom got out, and told me to stay in the car.
