Patrick Dempsey and Rick Skelton earned their best finish of the season as a duo in the No. 54 Mustang FR500C at Miller Motorsports Park. Skelton brought the car into the pits in 14th position, and Dempsey was able to hold and improve that with a 13th place overall in Friday's Koni Challenge Series race at Miller Motorsports Park.
Patrick Dempsey -- No. 54 Supercuts Mustang FR500C (Finished 13th)
"It was good. Usually I go out first, but this gave Rick some more time in the car. This was really the first time that I had to deal with getting into the car second. We weren't really prepared for driver changes and I found myself about five inches too far back in the seat so each lap when I'd brake I'd slide under the steering wheel, so that was the first challenge. Once I got out there it was so slippery and there was absolutely no grip. I had to be patient and we were able to hold our position."
RICK BROUGHT THE CAR IN THE PIT IN 14TH AND YOU WERE ABLE TO IMPROVE ON THAT WITH THE FINISH. "Towards the end I think a lot of cars had some problems. I think the team had a lot to do with our finish at the end of the race. I felt good during the race; I've been doing a lot of cycling. I was happy; it was our best finish together with him and I. Charles Espenlaub and I had a fifth or sixth-place finish earlier in the season so that was something for us to build on. This track in particular isn't for the Mustangs. They've got to start taking some of the weight off because we're getting killed by the BMWs and Porches in the corners."
Looking back, it's easy to see when a mistake has been made... to regret a choice that seemed like a decent idea at the time, but if we used our best judgment and listened to our hearts, we are more likely to see that we chose wisely and avoided the deepest most pain regret of them all - the regret from letting something amazing pass you by.
Did you say it? 'I love you. I don't ever want to live without you. You changed my life.' Did you say it? Make a plan. Set a goal. Work toward it, but every now and then, look around; Drink it in 'cause this is it. It might all be gone tomorrow."
