Short Story: Nice Car #BlogShorts

by Tom B. Taker

Hitting turbulence, Ricky buffeted out of the groove.

There was … contact.

Bobby spun once; rubber left the ground.

  1. If you left the driving to the ladies this would never have happened… speed kills… did anyone check that guy for opients???


    1. Bobby and/or Ricky may very well be ladies! 🙂

      I think opiate checks before races are pretty standard now.


    1. Heh. Thanks. I had a little fun with that bit.


  2. I loved the words you chose for this – they definitely convey the sense of movement and the sounds involved.


    1. Thanks! I kind of liked how this one turned out.


  3. Like MT, I love the Ricky Bobby nod! 🙂 Good one.


    1. I was asking myself, “What are good names for race car drivers?” Then I realized someone else had already done their homework on that. 🙂
