“If everything seems under control you’re not going fast enough.” – Mario Andretti
Your greatest successes are determined by all of your failures. Her union went on strike and Leanne found herself with no way to support herself and her son.
The first time Leanne got to race a 1979 Malibu and learning that you have to be better than yourself, every time you make a run.
