Last Wednesday, July 5th at Elko Speedway in Elko, Minnesota, my son and I had the surprise and pleaure to meet David Stremme. He was at the track for a promotion with four other Nextel stars for a match race and feature race with the locals, my son being one of the drivers. Much to our surprise, David is standing by our Super Late Model and looking over the car and saying "nice car." We proceed to talk with him for some time and then he gets a phone call and has to leave. My thoughts are several. Why did he come to our car and look it over. He was checking out the car earlier in the day but I didn't know who he was.Why would he come over to a dad and son operation that only has one win in seven years? Also,
David knew the chassis and front end set-up we were using and gave us several new ideas on this. A professional, kind and sincere young man I will always remember. Team 40, you picked a true winner. Remember, at all levels it your people that really play the game and keep you in business. David, thank you and may God be with you always.

Your racing friends,

These forum's are great only if David sponsor's, car owner's and
crew people around him get the message. I've been in business over 45 years so I really know the importance of good people and feedback communication. Remember, it's not always money, a slap on the back with a job well done is right up there. Let me know if David has received these messages. I really want to know if you believe in your people???

To whom it may concern,
My husband, Tim Fujawa, is the cousin of David. Tim's Godmother was Debbie Nowak (born Debbie Stremme). Unfortunately she passes away some years ago, but due to some other family emergencies, I realize how important family is. Anyway, David and Tim haven't seen each other since they were kids, but we now live in Arizona and I would like to see if there would be any way to get David and Tim together for a short visit during the race in Phoenix. I know Tim would be very happy to see his cousin again, even if it's just for a few minutes.

Please let me know if there is anything I can do to make this happen.

Thank You,
Megan Fujawa
