“Do you know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize.” 1 Cor 9:24
God flipped a switch inside me, the first time I heard that verse. There was something powerful awakened within me. I was a young man at the time, but I began to see how the Bible applied to my everyday life, and verses like this made my heart free! Heart wasn’t something just found in athletics, work or love. Heart was a way to live! So here are a few ways to live with heart. (more…)
A quick shout out after last night’s huge Summer Showdown…
Big Congrats to Bubba Pollard.
Racing cannot be done alone.
First off, let me say how hugely grateful I am to race…it is truly one of the greatest joys of my life. I think about going faster in a Super Late Model every single day.
