Default News from the Pits.....

...My crew chief and I are going our separate ways. I'm just not cut out for the family life and she's not cut out for the gearhead life, and we just can't seem to mix 'em successfully. Lots of pain on both sides but is amicable. Will be moving back into the shop, soon.

Sorry to hear that DD, i've been there twice, but neither one of them were intrested in racing, in fact neither one hardly ever went to the track with me. My last divorce was 1982 and i decided i wouldn't try marriage again, so single since then. Had opertunities but passed on them. Both my ex's parted on good terms and was never any bad feelings.
Good luck and keep your head up, it's not the end of the world.

Thanks for the 'support' guys. As with everything there is more behind the scene than will be made 'public'. We ARE splitting on 'good' terms.
It all boils down to me not being wired for any kind of 'family' type situation. There was a reason I was single for 30+ years.
A VERY GOOD woman is hurt and disappointed now, that need not be if I'd not fallen under the 'Maybe, just maybe this time'..spell, and deep inside know it would NOT work....something I will carry for the rest of my life, hurting her...

DD can't tell you how sad I was when I read this. I almost passed over this thread till another time, but glad I didn't. Although we've never met it seams like I've know you for a long time. This forum is not just for parts, racing tips and scammers. It's also our family connection and how we all know each other.

I don't get into friends buisness, but I do tell all of my friends in this situation to please make sure it's the last resort. Many times it is better to take a break and sit back a really think these things through.

I hope the best for you and her.

Combine 'The world's fastest Indian' and 'Two lane Blacktop' and that is who I am. 1000% gearhead / racer with zero relationship skills.

DD this subject came up a few weeks ago and you said 30 yrs. single and i said right behind you with 29 yrs. single and i didn't think i could ever get married because i have too many redneck problems, such as farting in bed, etc. It was a joke then, but i'm seriouly sorry that it come's to a reality for you. By the way i luv the world fastest Indian movie and his motivation to get it done, for yrs. beyond where i am now, 2 lane blacktop i lived that era and have strong memories from in and around Chgo. running from the law.

Zip.

PS: i don't don't know how many people on the forum has only been married once, but i know not many, maybe Outlaw, but not many more.
