Our Petty Experience

WOW!!!!That is all we can say about today. Rolled out of bed at 6am to be at Disney World by 7:30 for Bob's birthday present to himself. He was going to DRIVE a Nascar for 8 laps.

We were ushered into a room, filled out forms, watched a video, he suited up
and was taken on a van ride several times around the track with his classmates. He opted to take a ride with a driver around the track at 145 mph. That is him standing facing us by the back tire.

While I took a ride in the van with the kids. :)

He then waited his turn (he was last) to actually drive.
Click on the video.

After he finished he talked me into taking a ride in a car, so I got suited up
and did 3 laps at the 145mph. It was fantastic. It was a bit of a struggle getting in & out thru the window, but I did it. Check this video.

We are trying to figure out what next and exciting thing to do. Skydiving is least until our 80th birthday
