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
Congrats on the pregnancy! My family will be praying for you and Megan and your baby! I believe you made an honorable decision to leave, as hard is it must have been.
No worries homie. You’re the spiritual leader of your family and as such, you’ll make difficult decisions based on Gods guidance. Christ first, family second and everything else is third. Happy for you and family. Blessed journey my brother.
You made the correct decision. Congrats on the new one coming!
Nitro fuel is poison for the human being. Wise decision!
You made the right decision and I wish you and your family the best.
One question is regarding tire additives. I have never used them and I’d like to ask what additive you use and under what conditions do you use them?
I use buggy grip. I only use it in 1:10 indoor. Sometimes wd40 or similar when using clay compound. I haven’t done much testing with additive and difference kinds
Just wondering if your going to be running the new sc6 do you have one yet? I’m dieing to see some pictures of this thing. I understand you won’t be running it at the dirt nitro challenge if you are going to run it when will we see you on the track with it? Let’s shed some light on this secret truck please share
I will be running it when I get it. I don’t have any insight on it. I thought I was going to have it by now, but I haven’t got it yet. I’ll post on when I can
Thanks for bringing the hoodie Jared…..you made the right decision for your family…..My allergies killed me all weekend in there……See you next time man, Peace!
I was bummed I couldn’t stay, but it was what we needed to do
