Boogity, Boogity!


  I never thought I would say this... but, I love NASCAR. 

Last Christmas, my family got my dad a NASCAR "Driving Experience." Basically, he got the chance to sign up to drive a real NASCAR on a real NASCAR track! Perfect for a big racing fan, right?! It was actually pretty difficult to get on their calendar, so his December gift turned into a July happening.

We headed down to the Atlanta Motor Speedway early Saturday morning (read: EARLY! As in, check in was at 7 AM and it was 1.5 hours from my parents' house.... 5:30 AM was EARLY!). But it was totally worth it. We had the best time watching my dad train and then race around the track at 150 miles an hour.

 Yes, this is actually him driving around the track!

I'm pretty sure he was in heaven.

And don't worry, we yelled out SHAKE & BAKE!! about a million times : ) Ricky Bobby, baby.

 It was a fabulous day, especially when my dad told us that this was the best gift he's ever gotten!!! : )

Hope all of you had as fun as a weekend!

  10. Fun! Hubby is an instructor at Road Atlanta for BMW Driving Schools (hasn't done one this year yet) and LOVES it. I've only been on the track with him once...let's just say I get car sick, and after about 5 laps I'd had enough!! LOL My brother did the driving experience and loved it.
