From the get go, the pair was literally off to the races. Good friends Tom and Cheryl Anderson hooked the duo up with amazing hot pit passes for the IndyCar race at Infineon Raceway, putting them so close to the action they could have changed tires with the pit crew.
As lap after lap clicked by, Fred's smile got wider and wider, and Carol quickly realized the casual outting had reignited the racing spirit in Fred. The smell of methanol racing fuel and burning rubber captivated Fred. From that day on all he focused on was getting back behind the wheel of a race car.
Attending as many events at the local raceway as possible, nothing was going to stop Fred from achieving his racing dreams.
