Are Pro Drivers Eternal Optimists?

From Aaron Povoledo, driver of the #74 Compass360 Racing Honda Civic Si in Grand-Am's Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge and SCCA Pro's World Challenge:

Note* THIS IS NOT ME* (but unfortunately it's my co-driver)

Race update: We didn't quite win this one... 
Early in the race my co-driver had this very nasty crash which put us out of the race before I got a chance to drive. Luckily he escaped with broken ribs but nothing more serious. The good news is the car is very fast - I was P3 in the AM practice on very old tires, heavy fuel load and no draft. We will re-group and be looking for victory at at our next race at the Circuit of The Americas!

Broken ribs? 
No problem, those will heal. 
Key thing is, the car is very fast!!

I can say firsthand that Aaron is a fantastic driver coach who can help you shave seconds off your lap time. He invites all enthusiasts to speak with him on his Facebook Povoledo Racing fan page.
