"I cannot tell you how good it felt," Mike says, "that after two years, I finally accomplished my goal." When Mike got home he told his wife he was going to retire from racing the car because he couldn't take another great weekend of racing. However, as he relayed the story to us,Mike added "I'm ready for more for I am a ghost buster." You know Mike, there's always 10s.
