A to Z Challenge: R is for Race Cars

R is for race cars
that zoom 'round a track.
They race right away,
but always come back.

Even as a girl, I loved racing those little cars around my brother's race track. It was fun seeing them zoom around the oval, or figure-eight--whatever configuration my brother came up with. But that's where my fascination with race car ends. Today, you couldn't pay me to go to a race track and watch actual cars race around a track. Maybe it's because I'm purely a spectator. I never liked that part either as a child--I always wanted to have one of those control sticks that let me drive one of the cars. I guess I'm not the spectator type.
How about you? Would you rather be a spectator? Or a participant?


  1. Spectator for me. I'm too fragile--I break, just like the cars do when they crash.

  2. Car racing is the most popular spectator sport, but never really appealed to me. Fun to take part, not so much to watch.
