Ha!  Smokey Yunick made a career of "getting away with something" so you're in 
good company.  

Dan, speaking of first times, mine was in a Formula Vee, in the rain at Sears 
Point (now Infineon).  I was the only open cockpit car amongst all the "tin 
tops" and did I get soaked...but loved every minute of it.  I called my wife 
during the lunch break and told her I wasn't coming home as I was having too 
much fun.  That was eight years ago and she still can't get me to wipe this 
smile off my face.
