Race Day

October 17, 2008
By Doug Thompson, Gorham, NH

Race day
Adrenaline pumping
Every team ready for victory
The green flag has waved
The pedal is to the metal
67th lap, a car is in the grass
But no worries, no one was injured
Last lap
The white flag is being woven
Last corner, one stretch until the finish line
A mere 10 seconds
Going 198 miles per hour
As the leader goes over the line
A wreck in the final lap of the great American race
Three cars totaled
One of which is worse that the other two
Not a soul… imagine
The intimidator, dead, on the last lap of the great American race
