Matt’s Birthday Bash

I’ve written this post three times now and for some reason it keeps getting deleted.

Friday night we were invited to attend Matt Hale’s birthday party at Winners Motersports in Salt Lake. Matt is my sister Sarah’s husband for those who are curious. Anyway, Winners is a competetive indoor go-cart track and to be honest Jami and I were not super excited about going at first – not because we don’t like racing but more because it is not the cheapest thrill in town – $18 bucks for a 12 lap race plus a $5 headsock if you did not already own one.

We got there and Sarah had already registered us for their second heat so we decided to stop pinching pennies and just go for it. It took them awhile to get things organized. Luckily Sarah entertained us by pretending she was a racer geek and teaching us the finer points of Go-Cart safety. It was hilarious. Once we were finally in the cars we had a single warm up lap and then we were off and racing. While I am not a huge racing guy I am very competitive so once I got behind the wheel and the adrenaline was pumping I had a great time. The highlight of the race for me was the aggressive pass I put on my dad about half way through the race.

Jami on the otherhand found it a bit too stressful on track as she was worried about getting in someone elses way or being spun out by one of her over-aggressive in-laws. I was proud of her for trying and once she got out and the dust settled she even went so far as to say she might even try it again. . .
