Working 13 days straight at 120+ is definetly going to prep you for what we may have in store for this meet. The heat index for tomorrow is +/- 105.
Your grandson is obviously a prodigy in the making. Go ahead and buy him that "motor bicycle"-- Nicky Haden started competing at 3 yrs old and is now making serious money at the international GP level and his two brothers aren't far behind. I can see it all now.....

I think "motor bicycle" is brilliant.  He knows "motor" and he knows what a "bicycle" is and to put the two together when you don't have the word "motorcycle" is really clever.  Good for James.  And I'll bet you're wrong, Terry.  I'll wager Grandma Cyndia buys the first one!

I suggest you teach James to say "Modified Mini Pickup"

Terry, when I am done with the Escort you can have it to fix up for him and draw him back into the light.... I think it is about the right size/power level for him.
