Chris... again it's always great to see you and the family.... first time I
had a real chance to hang out with Lincoln for a bit.... we were searching
for something... anyway... he's a Very nice young man... you have done a
wonderful job raising him...

I knew you were running strong from the excitement in his voice....  he was
really pumped up for the whole event.... just great to see young folks
enjoying the sport as much as he was...

You are an inspiration to all of us....  Thank you for making the effort to
come this far to race...
