My husband, Phillip, turns the big 3-0 this month and I put together a really big surprise. I told him we were going hiking and renting a cabin in Northern Alabama. He also was supposed to get a 55 minute foot massage. Why would he believe that? What we really did was go to Talladega Super Speedway. He is not really a huge NASCAR fan, but has always wanted to be the driver on the car commercial where it says "closed course, professional driver." This is the closest I could get. So, Phillip took a class and got to drive a race car 6 laps around the track. It is all through the Dale Jarrett racing school. I also surprised him by inviting some family and friends. He had no clue. It was so nice for everyone to come out and wish him a happy birthday. We have some great people in our lives. Don't worry LAS didn't miss out. She was there and I even made her a cute NASCAR dress. I tried to google one to buy, but had no luck. I like mine better. Phillip's top speed was 176 mph. He did great and we had a lot of fun.
Ready to ride! My shirt is the same picture from the ivitation.Lu and Momma M
