As the lights switch from red to yellow to green, a weird kind of silence wraps around my brain and time feels like it stops.

Release the paddle. Release the brake. Release the second paddle. Hold the gas pedal steady at 1,700 RPMs for half a heartbeat. Then floor it.

The air whooshes out of my lungs from a breath I didn’t realize I was holding as 1.8 Gs press me back into my seat. In seconds, my speed tops 100 mph.

Release the gas. Slow it down. Breathe.

And laugh.
