Well its official... Josh and Payden (along with Payden's dad Mike) bought their tickets to the Las Vegas Motor Speedway for the NASCAR race on Sunday! I admit... I'm jealous... after all it was me who took Payden to several of the races at Rocky Mountain Raceway... and helped to develop his love of racing... shouldn't I be going too? Maybe next year... (hint.. hint... honey!) They are pretty excited to be going and Josh promised to get a picture of him with Dale Jr... for his scrapbook!
Here's a few things they can do while at the track... for only $109 each they can "ride-along" in the Richard Petty car for 3 laps...just to get the feel of what it would really be like to drive 180 mph...(the Petty car can only go 160 mph) what a rush or they could attend the wedding of a couple from Logan who will be getting "hitched" in the "Neon Garage".
Josh has always been a Tony Stewart fan from our NASCAR beginnings back in 2000... I still say... Go...Dale... but this time... I will cheer for Tony too! Remember he drives the #14... Office Depot car not the Home Depot #20... ;-) Boogity... boogity... boogity!

Let's go racin' boys!
The Daytona 500 is the "superbowl" of NASCAR.... yes us rednecks have our Superbowl at the first of the season... instead of the last. Five years ago (2004) Dale, Jr. won Daytona... I was hoping for a repeat. Not this year! I love Dale Jr... go #88 and I'm starting to warm up to Jeff (my Uncle Larry will be so excited to know that I have seen the light!) Well here is the first of 37 weekends of racing... Go Hendricks! Make sure to CRANK IT UP!
