At last it is race season! The Daytona 500 had a great ending as I had expected. I was very happy with Ryan Newman winning the race. He is a good guy. A little trivia...Eddie Carswell sang at his wedding a couple of years ago. I spoke with Ryan at the Atlanta race in October and he spoke of what a great guy Eddie is. Of course, I was so star struck even standing beside Ryan Newman that I really couldn't hardly concentrate on what he was saying!
Anyway, it was fun to watch the race today while snuggled up on the sofa after months of waiting to hear those famous words to start the beginning of the Race season.....racing to church just as the race is about to finish hoping to hear the finish before 6:00 when the service starts....sitting out in the car until you just HAVE to go in before the lights come back on after the baptismal part of the service as not to be such a obstacle walking to my seat in front of all those people! Then, possibly having to get a text message from Deanna telling me who won the race if it ended after 6:05! Another part of race season...seeing just how many of the PASS (ProAllStarSeries) races I can make it to without my sweet preacher husband totally disowning me! Those are the races that Jake and Deanna's car runs in. And then there is our own little racecar driver, Carson. He drives a quarter-midget, so some Saturdays when we are not away at the PASS races we get to go to Cumming and literally spend the day with him and the other great little NASCAR drivers of the future.
I guess you know by now that I am not at home in Woodstock to be able to watch the entire Daytona race. I am at the beach and it has been a great time. The winter weather has been great for a 'race retreat'! Yesterday was very very warm beach weather and today was very very good watch the race on TV weather. Thank you husband for letting me take this little retreat!
