The email was simple and to the point.
“Would you be interested in coming down to cover our Castrol Edge Winter Nationals at Willowbank?”
Visiting Australia has always been one of those bucket list destinations. It’s always been one of those places you envision visiting but never really expect to happen.
Clicking on the respond button, my response was, “No races that weekend, would love to.”
Then it hit me. June for me would contain four consecutive weekends of drag racing starting in Englishtown and ending in Norwalk. Two of the three races would require flights and the one was in Bristol, just a two-and-a-half hour ride through the scenic mountains of North Carolina and Tennessee.
