I have met Jeremy in Crandon, at the truck races and he is a very considerate and understanding guy. Jeremy is such an inspiration and a role model. Jeremy still had some competitive edge in him and he proved his speed. The time makes a big difference in this book.

He wants to help people as much as he can.
