Win on Sunday, sell on Monday

Win on Sunday, sell on Monday

Nobody ever loses and anyone who does is a total loser not worth losing sleep over. Except there’s just one podium spot. And a whole bunch of people having a blast trying to stand on it.

You miss the point when you reduce racing to sales. Sure someone has to foot the bill, and well funded teams go fast. But it’s the fight we fall in love with. It’s the possibility of falling short that holds the romance.

The next time the winningest winners fart out another win, roll your eyes and take a nap. There’s always Tuesday.
