I am just writing to apologize to my fans and my sponsors for not staying to attend R1 of the JC National series in St. Louis, MO. I really wanted to race, and I know there were people that wanted and expected me to be there and to race. I just want to explain and share why we had to leave.
First off, I have great news. Megan is pregnant again!!!!!!! We are very excited, but with our previous child, we are very nervous and scared as well. Megan is only six weeks pregnant and right now is a very critical time for the little baby to grow.
With all my traveling and missing my family, I wanted them to attend this race with me. When we arrived, there was an obvious issue with fumes in the building. I didn’t even think about all the tire additive that the racers, including me, would be using all weekend long. We were there for an hour or so, and made the decision that it isn’t safe for Megan and the new baby to be in there. As you could imagine, it was an emotional time for us both. The worry of us harming our new baby is the scariest thing in the world. We called our doctor and she reassured us that everything is ok, and we made the right decision to leave.
I feel bad for my fans and the kids that wanted to see me race, but ultimately my family comes before my racing. I will see you all at another race.
I would like to ask for prayers that our little baby is growing strong and healthy and that Megan can feel peace and enjoy this time. This is going to be a very long and stressful nine months, but we truly feel that God will bless us with a healthy little baby in October.
Thanks for understanding and I look forward to seeing you all very soon at another race. God Bless
