Gentlemen, start your engines...

Dick 'wannabe Petty' waiting for class to begin...

Paper work all done, all instructed, suited up, and now ready to go....

Zoom, zoom....he topped out at 143.25, just under son Brian's personal best of 147 mph...

Big grin...Dick said it didn't feel like six laps, but that's is what it was.It was fun, but no need to do it again. Actually, Dick said that driving the mountain road over Neel's Gap is almost as much fun.......and a heck of a lot cheaper!!! End of story!

I got to see Lynne today at the card class that Haley taught. We had a good time. Sounds like Dick had a SUPER time! (But if driving on that track is anything like driving over Neel's Gap, I will pass on it!)
Hugs, Joy

Sable, Molly, & Ink said...

Wow! Race cars, huh? Has he tried drag racing yet?

Sandy & Dick said...

No way on the drag racing! Flying airplanes is enuf trouble to get into:-)

Brian said...

Um, driving over Neel's ISN'T cheaper when you wreck the vehicle. Now is it dad??? Glad you did it and had a good time, and didn't wreck!!!

Sandy & Dick said...

Weeellll, we came out sorta ahead with a newer vehicle and a little bit of 'boot,' but the aggravation wasn't worth it...not that the wreck was intended! And, he didn't get any points. We don't want to repeat that particular ride...xoxoxo
