Race Car Driving

Last weekend was incredibly busy.  In addition to graduations and parties, we also had a fun filled Saturday at the Kentucky Speedway.  My father-in-law’s birthday present this year was to drive a real race car!  He is a Nascar fan, so we figured he would love this… which he did!  There were a few others in our family who got to drive as well, and at the last minute I got to be added in for a ride!  Yep, I took a ride in a real race car, with a real race car professional, going 165 mph!  Fun!  Here are some pictures…

My boys didn't know I was going to ride.  When they saw me in racing gear, their eyes got HUGE!
