Episode Info: In the last episode I talked about going to New Egypt Speedway for the 1st time and Hanging out with Eddie Wagner and Erika Palmai.  That night Eddie and Erika had a racing incident in the feature.  Eddie and Erika are also engaged.  Like I said in the last episode, when they got back to the pits they were not happy with each other. Erika posted, "I hate arguing with someone for more than a day... :(But I was wondering how long those feelings would last?  Today you can follow many of your favorite drivers on Facebook. Now I follow Erika and Eddie on Facebook so I knew the next day there was still trouble in paradise. Then Eddie responded with a picture of a woman blindfolded in a car and said, "How Erika Palmai straps into a race car." That picture was so funny you laugh, but you feel a little bad about laughing.  In my opinion that is the funniest kind of joke.  But by Friday they buried the hatchet.  And I think it helped that there wasn't any racing the next weekend.   So I got a chance to ask them about racing and relationships.

So Ed Sr. couldn't go and it was up to Eddie, Bill, and yours truly to work on the car. More about that in a minute. One thing that about a 2 1/2 hour ride to the track is there is plenty of time to tell stories and play games.  Friday's game was let's see who can hold their pee the longest. Congratulations to the winner Erika Palmai, what a trooper.  It's a shame I didn't put a clock on her. Honestly, it was impressive.  At one point I heard Erika say, "I have to pee so bad I'm sick to my stomach." Anyone else would have whined and complained so much you would have stopped just so your ears wouldn't bleed.  But not Erika.  Like I said, it was impressive. If that was me I would have needed a change of clothes. One thing I learned about Eddie, he's not much on stopping.  Ed like to get there.  We did stop before we got to the track, but I'll
