She seems like such a nice young woman, having studied to become a teacher and all.
And she has that big, famous Force smile.

There are plenty of cheesy sayings about not giving up.
If at first you don’t succeed. When the going gets tough. Winners never quit.

Matt Smith has won a lot of races. He has collected a lot of poles.

Well, they can't say he didn't give ample warning.
Friday, after Elijah Morton secured the provisional Mountain Motor Pro Stock No. 1 qualifying position, Morton admitted JR Carr came to him and said, "Enjoy it while I could because he's coming for me, but he's got to come to get it, so we'll see what happens."
Blame it on the rain for Carr not being able to do it in qualifying. But Carr made good on his promise on his last run of the weekend.

One look is all it took for the memories to flow for Scott Palmer.
Friday at the NHRA Virginia Nationals outside of Richmond, Va., Palmer looked over at the ropes at the edge of the pits, and there was a gentleman he credits for helping him make it in the rough and tumble world of Top Fuel.
Larry Frazier, whose tuning resume includes 16-time NHRA champion John Force and Doug Herbert, to name a few, also helped a wet behind the ears Palmer get his feet on the ground with the kings of the sport.
