“Stay in your lane.”
I first learned this lesson prior to my first race at Watkins Glen a few years ago. It helped me learn how to stay the course, avoid the other drivers, and keep the race moving smoothly. You need to trust other drivers to do the same. It also prevented crashes. And yes, there were times when I drifted out of my lane.
Kate Donovan (Stapleton) taught me this lesson again as we started to build Dealer Teamwork LLC. She taught us to trust each other, avoid things we didn’t need to be involved in, and keep the pace moving smoothly.
And yes, there have been many times when I drifted out of my lane. Getting better with every lap.
