 Husbands and wife’s have different views on many thing.

One of these instances happened Saturday at the Jeffersonville Sportsdrome.  Dean Riley, a regular FWD racer and figure 8 driver, was turning the wheel on one of his figure 8 minivans. While running through the intersection, the rear of his red #56 van gets clipped. That impact sent him into a driver side roll over partially on the roof, but with enough momentum to lay back on all four wheels.

At this point in time his wife, Gina Riley, said she was scared to death. Later she said, "It’s the scariest night of my life.”

Dean's reaction is quite different as he climbs out of the van to the roar of the crowd, gets on top of the van and dances. The race restarts and Dean wins.

When ask about it later Dean says, “I have so much fun. You got to have fun.” Gina, however, had a different prospective, "I didn’t have any fun.”
