David first met John at the Andretti race shop and from there it was a friendship forever. When asked to share his favorite memory he said, “I remember the first race we went to together. Jarett was driving for me and John was spotting. Jarett came through the turn in his first ever road course race and wanted to pass another car. Of course, he used his sprint car skills and moved the other car over. It damaged Jarett’s car and the next time around his engine blew up from damage to the cooling system. John turned around screaming and said to me ‘Well David, I guess this is the last time we will drive for you’. I on the other hand was laughing so hard because I knew Jarett would have a hard time getting used to road course racing because all he had done for a while was racing on dirt. I looked at John and said ‘Lets go get another motor out of the trailer and fix her up. We have a race to run together tomorrow’. John, Jarett and I, along with the team worked all night to put that car back together. It was a great time together. We really got to know each other that night. I knew then, John was a good man and dedicated father. God, I miss him.”
When asked who he checks it for David responded, “For my family! They count on me and I can’t let them down.”
Colorectal cancer’s causes are unknown but there are risks that are inherited and come from different lifestyle factors. Smoking, lack of exercise, and obesity may place someone at larger risk for colorectal cancer. Genetic factors could increase a person’s susceptibility to the disease.
If you are 45 or older, you should talk to your doctor about yearly screenings. These screenings can identify polyps and allow time for the removal of precancerous polyps to prevent the future development of cancer. Early screening is the best way to reduce your risk of colorectal cancer.
