One thing I find rather interesting is how Paul and Jason work as a team even as they're competing.
This is an intriguing tale. :)
Thank you. :-)
I am somewhat of a “casual” NASCAR fan (I watch maybe a half-dozen or so races a year) and have seen similar behavior between team-mates, and sometimes good friends who drive different teams, especially at tracks like Talladega. I figured since Jason and Paul knew each other, have worked together, and drove for the same team, working together for a common goal would not be unusual.

Wow, lots of description and technical talk! There were a few places where the paragraph seemed a little long (maybe could be broken up a little?), but it was still a good read. Heh, and I just realized it didn't have any dialog, but it didn't seem to need it. I also liked that Jason didn't win first place. You can't be a perfect racer all the time!
Nice to see you writing again. Horrah!
Thank you. It is nice to know that people actually read this stuff. <sg> The lack of dialog initially was a accident. It became a challenge when I realized I was almost a full page in and no one had spoken yet. I decided to see if I could finish it with out any one talking.
Thanks for reading and for commenting. Yes, these is more to come. I'm just not as fast as some folks around here. <wg>

Nice job, Kat. Tight pacing makes for a sense of tension and anticipation as the race progresses. I still maintain that they speak Italian in Sicily, though. Among the things I liked about this story was the novelty of (a) Jason's car not defying the Laws of Physics and (b) Jason not actually winning the race but merely being happy with his placing.
<chuckle> Thank you. Glad you liked it. I had fun writting it.
I did check with our resident Polyglot (namely Mike - His Mother is Sicilian and should know. <g>) and his says Sicilian is a distinct language. Something akin to Irish, Manx and Scots I think. Similiar but different.
