Courage to GoStuart Jones To accomplish anything we must first decide to begin the journey. The green flag drops and drivers in the race know it’s time to push the pedal to the metal and take off on the journey that will last many laps. The driver knows the race will be difficult. There will be accidents, possibly some serious ones. He knows he will be pushed mentally and physically to the edge. But he goes when the flag drops because rewards await. It only takes one driver at the start of the race to hesitate and not move forward to cause a crash that endangers other drivers and mar the race. Have courage to go when the flag drops.
