A friend of mine, who is far better to me then I deserve, read Lea’s comment and started working to find tickets. He called me last week and said, “I got you two tickets to Friday night’s race and two ticket to Saturday night’s race, plus room and board are covered for your trip. You just need to take care of your plane tickets.” I think we can handle that.
Bristol tickets are the hardest to get in NASCAR. From what I understand, they sellout years in advance. Now you know why I’m pumped.
Lea and I love sports. Major League Baseball, NFL football and NASCAR have always been sports we like to watch. But Lea’s real love is NASCAR. We’ve made races at Texas Motor Speedway in Dallas the last 6 years. We even celebrated an anniversary by flying to Richmond, Virgina, a few years ago, and catching a race there. But Bristol has just been a dream … till now.
So, the kids are lined up, the plane tickets purchased and we’re less than two weeks from the green flag dropping. Bristol Motor Speedway here we come.
PS – It worked for Bristol tickets so I thought I might also mention here that I’d love to go to the Super Bowl, the World Series, Hawaii, the beach and those new Chevy pickups are really cool. 😉 Just kidding.
So, have you ever been given a gift that just “overwhelmed” you?
