Today Shane and I went to the NHRA Nationals here in Phoenix. Quite an experience… There is nothing like standing at a vendor booth, looking at tires, when all of a sudden you realize your soda is sloshing from the noise of Top Fuel cars racing. Not often do you get to feel noise move through your body and your soda! And let me tell you, the people watching…out of this world! You’ve got your young families, you’re hard core race groupies, rowdy guys and gals, and those geeky people like me who are trying to figure out the physics of finishing under 3.9 seconds. We didn’t stick around long enough (nor did we leave with a Harley Shane was in a drawing for) to see John or Ashley Force race, but we did get to see John Force zoom through the Midway on a little motorcycle going beep beep. We had a fun time and I bet Beau would have loved seeing all the racecars…if it wouldn’t have hurt his poor little ears.
A great big Thank You to Mirandi and Todd for watching Beau and to Grandma Jude for giving him a much needed haircut!!
