Welcome to Gospel Motorsports. This web site
is dedicated to the Lord Jesus Christ, through which
all things are possible.
Sponsor: I had a passion for drag racing and
participated as a sportsman bracket racer for many
years. When my children became of age to enter the
sport, it seemed necessary to consider a team name.
When looking at popular cars and drivers, many of
them include big name sponsors that have provided
endless revenue streams to facilitate the efforts of
the race team. While dollars are a necessary element
of racing, the ultimate provider of life seemed to
deserve the most credit for our blessing to be able
to race. God takes many forms, but in the Gospel, he
takes the form of Jesus, and the story of the
ultimate sacrifice became the obvious choice for the
Faith Factor: While drag racing's
safety has grown over the years, it is still a
dangerous sport. In my early racing years, the risk
may have been part of the thrill. Seeing a few great
names pass on such as Blaine Johnson, Lee Shepherd,
and Darrell Russell have reminded me that our time
on life's track is very limited. Fear can be
consuming, and the greatest tool to keep in the
toolbox is faith in the Lord Jesus and the life
everlasting that he grants. So if it happens that we
expire in the traps, we will know that we have
crossed that finish line of life and entered the
winner's circle in heaven.
Most people in this sport will recognize that the
income barely makes a dent in the costs. Fame is about as short lived as
the money, if it ever comes. Stepping away from the
need to win has allowed this sport to become fun.
When the day is done and there were a few more wins
than losses, that victory does not go to my talents,
my car, or luck, the victory goes to the Lord. I
will work hard and try to win to bring glory to the
Lord's name, but I know that the finish is up to the
Lord and he will decide if that .000 light will fall
in my lane or my competitor's.
