The face of determination...
Well, of course my son is a winner in every way possible but today he really IS the big RACE winner! He was the winner of the Quick 16 at No Problem Raceway in Donaldsonville, La.
He races in the Top Dragster division and runs for the Quick 16. (Let me add that Brett is in the top 10 in the points standing at the track!)
Please excuse me if I'm bragging a little too much. I'm just a VERY proud Momma!
First he has to qualify as one of the 16 fastest at the track. But with that powerhouse of a motor behind him, that's not a problem.
Then he has to win 4 rounds against the best of the best & let's not forget to mention the quickest... Done!!!! :) (brag brag)
And a little help from his Paw Paw Teral looking down on him from Heaven and keeping him safe is always a blessing.
Brett is the fourth generation drag racer in the LeJeune family. It's in his blood...there is NO denying it.
He was racing karts at a very young age and started drag racing (NHRA) the day he turned 17. And now he's about to turn 21...
and this is where he is most comfortable and in total control.
If you are wondering if I am okay with this...I am. I married his dad while doing the whole drag racing thing and Brett grew up right along in the mix.
But now as a mother of a dragster driver, I must admit...I cannot go and watch him race. No matter how old he is...he is still my baby (my only baby) and I can't bear to see that car run 185 mph in 7 seconds. I. just. cannot. do. it.
So today was a wonderful Mother's Day present for me (& for Thad's mom too) because I know that when they get home late tonight, Brett's smile and his Daddy's pride and joy will be the best present a Mother/Wife could ask for.
Last weekend semi finals, this week he finished his (college) finals, and this weekend, he's the winner of the finals...my goodness!
Our boy is on a roll!
I hope your Mother's Day weekend is as perfect as mine!
