Racing and God. What's the Connection?

By: Pastor/Racer Jay Young
 
Team True Racing has been involved with USDR since 2007. We have always loved the family vibe and the friendly atmosphere between the racers. We started with prayer on the starting line and now have services Saturday night at the races.

So what is the connection between racing and God?  Why does it almost seem spiritual when I'm riding my dirt bike or quad?  It's because of the single point of focus. Every thing else in your life is put on hold because frankly, you can't be fast and be worrying about your Job or School. When I'm racing the only thing I am thinking about is the race and how thankful I am for the opportunity. Yes I'm praying, or singing or sometimes screaming but it is such a release!  Me, my machine and God.  We connect, I get creation, I understand pain, I feel present!   Being at a place and time where everything is Right Now is what allows me to be balanced and able to deal with the rest of my life. 

That's why Team true was created. So that we can share these times together and develop our relationship with God. Being able to have fellowship with other racers and be grateful before or after a race is amazing, and I can't imagine being a Pastor anywhere else.
