I would not put my kids in danger.. I thought about not mentioning the fact that they were in the car, but then I decided to mention it..Remember, clear road no traffic, and we shut off at about 60-70 mph ( 3rd gear)..a speed I would do on the highway..we were not in danger, I do however appreciate your concern. . I would not race in a agressive or fast manner with anyone other than myself in the car.....and ASH was right about the 50 shot and the stick..

Viney, that kicks so much ass. You showed whats up to a group of punk ass kids in their rice burner with a grocery gettery and your kids in the back, that's pure gold. I give you top props.

I would have loved to seen that, the look on the punks face would have been priceless..

You gotta love the wisdom that children posses, my 3 year old son walks me to my car before a run at the track, opens my door and looks at me with his large blue eyes and states " you go win mommy."

And people wonder why you have a tear in your eye when you smoke the guy at the end of the track!

I can't believe you raced with your kids in the car. I'm sure you drove carefully but I would never even think about doing that. Maybe it's cuz I'm a female, I dunno. I don't mean any disrespect to you at all....I'm just voicing my opinion.
