RESPONSE FROM THE CANADIAN
Ken Symes: Zoom! Zoom! Ken Symes from Australia is a great guy and I wish him tremendous success as he supports Jordan Symes’ need for speed! I love auto racing and I’m a big fan of NASCAR, my favourite drivers being Jimmie Johnson and Jeff Gordon. I once had a friend who was going to start racing and asked me to be in his pit crew, but that never happened. So while the Australian Ken Symes is a race car crew chief, I, the Canadian Ken Symes, am just a NASCAR fan who blogs about Christianity and culture (see Ken Symes’ Samaritan XP) and posts daily readings from C.S. Lewis at a devotional site called Mere C.S. Lewis. The pic below is from a Canadian Tire Nascar Race I went to with my son. We love racing! And we would love to visit Australia some day and see Jordan Symes in a V8 Supercar race! That would be awesome! I wonder if my same name could score me a pit road pass?
