Beyond the Uniform: Navy to NASCAR

Beyond the Uniform: Navy to NASCAR


Most racers, most professional drivers;
A lot of them start their racing careers as early as age four or five years old.
I didn’t start racing wheel to wheel against people until I was 27 years old. Crowd: (I haven’t seen you since orange show) I’ve been racing I’ve been all over the place. I just decided that I wanted to
go in this crazy journey while still being in the Navy and racing NASCAR,
literally 2015 was like when my story when everything really this
journey started. My name is Jesse Iwuji and I’m actually lieutenant in the Navy I went to the Naval Academy and played football there for four years. and while at the Naval Academy at academics, I had football, I had our other military duties that I had to attend to while being there so there’s a lot of time being taken up
by that stuff and then you do still have free time, so I managed to, on my free
time be able to also pursue my hobbies and my passions and things like that. You know I’m gonna have football, racing, military stuff and racing was the one that really got me. Once I graduated from the Naval Academy, I was on two different ships from my first four years, deployed with both of them. In
between all of that, on the weekends that I didn’t have any duty or anything like
that that actually had a full free weekend, I spent it trying to find some
way somehow to get to some type of track to do something that was car or motor sports related. Being in motorsports and racing now and just you
know being somebody who’s in the service still and also doing that, you know I’ve
gotten a lot of love and a lot of support from our vets out there, people
who are still in the service whether they’re in the reserves or active duty
and it’s been cool to see that support from them and and it’s inspired a lot of
them to also go after their goals and dreams. I think it just shows them that
you know look at this guy who’s going towards something that everyone would
normally think is impossible to go after he’s going after it and he’s achieving and
he’s just making it. He’s continue to grind every single day, every year to
continue to move up. You know, why can’t I do it myself.

  1. You can join the military and then become a race car driver. Not really but it's better than the reality. Military propaganda is gross.

  2. Military's version of you got either a wicked jump shot or you can sell crack rock. Military ruins generations of Americans

  3. All military kids should do 23 and me. At least 30 percent of you have different biological fathers than your mother admits. Yeah thank the troops and their families

  4. 兄弟,我说真心话,憋屈了好久,我是个普通的中国学生,我安分守己,但是我很小就崇拜美国。高中的时候逐渐理智,我也为中国崛起而自豪,也时长感到中国古人的治国和处世的智慧,可我对美国的深爱已经刻入我的骨髓。我没办法抛下这个深沉的信仰,你也可以说是罪孽。我只希望当三年后我大学毕业,能靠自己一点一滴挣来的钱,和我的成绩,移民我的精神家园。我真的很难受,我看到任何人诅骂美国,任何侮辱美国的新闻(很多都是真事,美国并不美好),我的心都像刀割的。我真的不是崇洋媚外,就是单纯的爱,我无法割舍的爱。我经常看一些经典的美国的爱国电影,比如黑鹰陨落。我真的相信,美国是人类唯一的未来。因为他们是唯一一个敢于颠覆世俗规则,寻求人类革命的多种族的民族。从第二次工业革命,到计算机革命,再到下一代的星际革命,他们不仅仅走在前面,还守护着人类的梦想,真正的。但凡是反美的国家,我不懂什么民主啊共产主义啊的政治,但我知道一点,它们都数都是不肯创新,只在现有的物质世界中寻求狭隘利益的国家。他们只看见了美国是霸主,他们看不见美国在守护和孕育的梦想。他们眼中的世界第一,只是他们看见的美国的霸主地位,却从未想过保卫人类的理想,守护人类的未来。
    这就是我对美国的爱的原因。其实,如果有更伟大的国家的话,我也不会觉得美国怎么样,但是,此时此刻,她在风雨中为人类的未来而奋斗。spacex的火星计划,intel下一代的自旋芯片,google的人工智能,美军开发的动力外骨骼,NASA的空间站,美国的各所大学。。。他们,他们都在日以继夜的为未来而战。火星计划能打垮中国?谷歌的人工智能会奴役人类?因为美国民众反对美国政府就彻底封杀媒体?真的,任何有理想的人,都应当明白,也许美国做出了太多罪孽,但至少,我们得尊重他的巨大担当和坚守。
