WHO JESUS IS
The Rock Island Grand Prix is coming up Septmember 1-3, 2017. We have done this event three times; 1999, 2001 and 2002. I'm hoping to take my son to watch and experience it as a spectator this year.

The two members of the team are Rob Hogenmiller and Chad Arndt. Rob will be taking the place as team manager for 2017 with test driving and kart setup while goal is to get Chad seat time this year to compete in one Pro race this year if not two depending on our team results. Goal is top ten. Right now please keep us in prayer for our safety, our success and that we will be blessed with top notch equipment, that we will have fun on the way and glorify our creator.
Tracktimer was successuflly installed on the teams laptop and will serve as a great tracking tool for feedback and getting the kart jetted right and chassis setup, while also keeping track of parts we need to keep the team organized and professional.

We secured our product from our second sponsor www.tracktimer.com yesterday. I have to download the product and install it. Yet is it exciting to know that we have a product that will help us. The karts still are not together and track ready yet. We need a rear brake for one of the karts because no cups and seals are available for the rear brake caliper on the 2006 Energy kart. The 2016 Parolin kart needs a motor and I'm not sure what else we need at this point. I am hoping we can get to www.kckarting.com track in March to do an early shake down of the karts.

Mental toughness. I've been finding it a struggle to fight Satan, now I have the power of the Holy Spirit inside me and there will be no defeating God. I'm not sure what God is up to other then I know He is PURE LOVE and I'm just thankful he chose me to play a part in His plan. Keep in mind the name of this site is PGFracing, which stands for PUT GOD FIRST racing. Right now the goal for PGFracing is to make $77,000 in 2017. How that is going to happen I really have no idea just going to rely on God to make it happen. I've got 0.001 of that. Gonna leave it up to God to 1,000 fold that. We recently acquired www.pgfracing.org and this racing team is like no other. This one is founded on Yahuah. God is the owner of this team I am second.

Today's goal twenty minutes on stationary bicycle with a distance of five miles.
Update: Today I tried to figure out the new bike at the YMCA to get the most out of twenty minutes. The most I've ever done is about 6.1 miles in twenty minutes on a Schwinn Aerodyne. I went over three miles on the bike at the Y, however not sure how far over three miles.
February 16, 2017 Update
The PGFRACING TEAM now has quite a few resources together to help the team succeed. We have a 2016.5 Mazda CX-5 AWD vehicle that just needs a tow hitch to haul the team trailer. We have an older shifter-kart chassis and older S1 Super Pro SKUSA motor that is no longer legal however it will allow us to practice. Recently also acquired by team driver Chad Arndt is a newer Parolin Shifter-kart chassis which we are going to get a Swedetech Motor for. We are planning a gathering of the drivers and team that is still interested in pursuing racing the 2017 Memorial Day Weekend near Denver Colorado, where we will go to Unser Indoor Karting and an outdoor track to practice in the shifter-kart. We will be racing in remembrance of our good friend Jeff Johnson. Jeff always brought a smile to your face with his warm personality, character, charm and his good looks. Later today I hope to have a link to a product you can buy for $0.99 cents to support the team financially. The product is available for anyone that can purchase of Amazon globally.
Update on yesterday's goal and my progress. I did achieve no fast food for the day so won that battle. The goal to bike 5.0 miles on the stationary bike wasn't defined very well. The goal was to get 5.0 miles however I left the in twenty minutes part off. I must complete the Body For Life Challenge twice this year in 2017. There are no excuses left. I am improving in my diet and my workout and already doing much better than last year. Praise Jesus.
I have a dream to be an eight time Formula 1 champion while promoting PUT GOD FIRST part of PGFRACING as I go along. Goal is to own a team that helps humanity along with having a defined presence in all forms of ladder racing all the way to Formula 1. Letting others know that God does provide and provide hope and love for all. I was watching videos the other day on all the problems that come along with Formula 1 and wondering is that really what I want or would I rather be a weekend warrior. Honestly I'd like to compete against the best of the best I believe. Right now I'm around 240lbs and honestly if I want to compete against the best I need to be around 165lbs and really focus on my body to be competitive. Please keep me in prayer that I may get to a healthy weight and maintain that. That is one of my biggest challenges right now. I also believe it will help strengthen my mindset which could use improvement as well.
February 15, 2017 Goal for the day, to not eat fast food or too much sugar. Also get do 5.0 miles on the stationary bike. I've been fighting a spiritual battle and working on getting out of this funk for quite sometime.
