competition, adrenaline rush, and the speed. His most exciting moment was
was breaking a steering bracket three laps into the race, having to start
at the back and winning the race with a unsecure steering wheel. He is
most proud of setting goals and accomplishing them and being able to
finish a race.

Of racing, Derek says, "Builds character!
When it's rough don't let it get you down! And it's a blast!"
