So in between all the business with my father and my school work and assignments and my job and my kids and just trying to have a life amongst it all I forgot to mention that Daz is in the USA!! He went last Tuesday so he’s been there what, five or six days.
He went to watch Sprintcar racing and NASCAR racing. Neither of which are well known here in Australia, or in fact known at all. In fact he is a bit of an enigma here when it comes to those two subjects. But what do I know? Maybe no one over there gives a rats arse about the Knoxville Nationals either.
But Daz loves all that stuff. When he was a kid he lived across the road from the Braziers who are big in the sprintcar world. He was friends with the older brother Steve who raced sprintcars but he was killed in an accident when they were still teenagers. His younger brother Gary started racing and was really good at it but as with all those quirky sort of sports here in Australia that aren’t cricket, football or swimming, if you’re good at them you have to go overseas to pursue them.
So I believe the Nationals are over today and after that he heads to Detroit for some sort of NASCAR race. Where another Australian, Marcus Ambrose, will be in action.
Oh, something I just remembered. Remember the house of horrors? When daz’s father died and left the hoarders house to the kids to sort out? Well thats only just being finished up now, after about six months. But anyway one thing they did find there was a huge Australian flag, so Daz as taken that with him and is going to fly it at the NASCAR’s.
So if you watch it, and you see it, thats him.
I’ve no idea where he is at the moment. Heading to Chicago I think. He went with a friend, they’re in an RV, hopefully on the right side of the road. He does send messages but they’re all usually about Chevs, how many there are, how nice they are, how cheap they are.
This is the map he left me. So he’s somewhere along that line. I’m presuming the arrows come back in a return direction.
