Dreams of Race Car Driving

Category: sonsadmin @ 10:17 am

On Saturday Night the Native Dads and Sons headed to the Painesville Speedway to see what it’s like to be a Race Car Driver.  With each race the excitement grew and everyone waiting to see who could pass the lead car or which cars would spin out.  When the Green flag dropped the cars were off and its not until the checkered flag do we find the winner.  Everyone was amazed at how young some of the drivers were.  There was a 17 year old who won over a dozen of races last year.  Also there was a 16 year old who won his race and then finally a 14 year came out racing and took second place.  We didn’t know you didn’t need a driver’s licence to race.

At intermission they had a Big Wheels race with all of these little kids racing around the track and then they opened up the gates and let all the kids in with a chance to win some prizes.  Our boys will always remember this event, for what little kid doesn’t imagine getting behind the wheels of a race car and winning the race.
