Here is today’s “Daily Dilemma”:

Hey Guys,

I’ll try to keep this brief, I’m a freshman in college and I’m miserable. Ever since I was little the one thing my Dad always made clear was that I would be going to and graduating college. He saved all my life for tuition and it is very important to him.

The problem is I am miserable and I really feel like I’m wasting years and a lot of his money. When I was little I got into racing, I love cars, engines and driving. Unlike a lot of kids my age I didn’t get into racing because of my Dad, it was actually an Uncle who got me into it. My Dad, thinks it is a fools folly at best and always tells me I can never really be successful without a degree.

I know there is a good chance I may never be rich I probably wont be racing in the Sprint Series any time soon. I also understand that  a lot of people at the track barely get by or even go into debt just taking care of their cars. I really am fine with getting by if that’s what it takes to stay in racing. I know I can at least do that, I am really good around engines.

So what do I do? I know even if I finish college I will be doing the same thing I’m doing now, there will always be grease under these finger nails.

We’d love to get your opinion on this one, just leave your comments at the bottom of this page.
