What are your top 3 bucket list items: (1) being happy, (2) helping others, (3) making a difference

If you could have any superpower, what would you choose: See-thru vision would be pretty awesome and perhaps a little bit disturbing! LOL

Anything else you would like to share: I was an SCDA virgin in May of 2004.  A 1995 Mazda Miata complete with Hard Dog roll bar, Sparco 5-point racing harness, Jackson Racing headers, exhaust, and a supercharged engine was my gateway drug into HPDE.  I am now a nationally licensed, two-time championship winning driver with the SCCA.
