The post said to first register to win, second to write a post as to why I like NASCAR, and third to upload a favorite NASCAR related picture of mine, and it was a that point that I said that the prize which consisted of a 4-pack of NASCAR tickets for Sunday's race was mine. Well, at least that's what I told myself.
I just kinda laughed when I told Abby cause I had been waiting for that call all week as if I was certain I would get it.
My daughter Nikki is a pro at winning contests and immeadiately she sent me a text congratulating me for the win. When I suggested that maybe now it was time for me to start buying lotto tickets she said: "Trust me dad, I have done it and it doesn't work". Talk about a harsh way to burst my bubble. Well, I can't no longer say I never win anything right!
So, we recruited a couple of awesome kids to fill the other two seats, Diego and Loyiel Jr. a.k.a. "Ducky" were only too happy to come with us. So after picking them up we headed to P.I.R. which fortunately is only a few minutes away from the house. Being that NASCAR is attended by thousands of people streets get closed and traffic gets re-routed but I know the shorcuts. He he he!
|Ah! Victory is mine... not the bike though.|
We got there a bit late so we missed a lot of the exhibits and stuff but we did get to see the F-16s fly over and the fireworks. The seats were right before turn #1 but we were only the third row from the bottom and the view wasn't the best, when the cars passed in front of us they were just a blur and if we turned our heads to the right to see them go they were already dissapearing on turn one.
|Oh yes! It was loud and the kids had ear plugs and fingers in their ears.|
All in all, Abby and i had another fun and succesful outing, this time with two of the g-kids.
