Through the years, Hector Arana II, never wavered in his belief that if you worked hard enough, and never questioned your beliefs, your goal, whatever it might be, was attainable.
Even when his children, who used to come running to him when he returned from a weekend of racing, yelling, “daddy, daddy did you win” suddenly stopped asking, Arana persevered.
“I remember we stopped asking,” said Hector Arana, III. “I don't remember why we stopped asking. He kept saying no, so I guess we stopped asking because we didn't want to bring up the point and make him feel bad.”
