    So my brother and I decided to take Dad to the Daytona 500 for his 60th. He was very surprised when he opened that xard last year. But life catches up with ya sometimes at the weirdest times and I ended up not being able to go (wife is 8 1/2 months) ((also Dads first grandbaby so he’s freakin stoked about that too)) So anyway my brother and dad are there. We always watched the Daytona together growing up so we thought this would be awesome!

    Looks like Dad is having a total blast!

    Our first Daytona was 1993. We thought we'd just go to one NASCAR race so we could say we'd done it. We ended up going to Dover, Michigan and Atlanta in that year.

    27 years later, we've been to all NASCAR Cup venues but New Hampshire, Watkins Glen, Pocono, Kentucky and Chicago....

    It was pretty crazy seeing the presidential motorcade bring the cars out of the pits and run a lap around the track! I think I've seen it all now.

    My fault I guess. Worked Sundays for many years. First year in a long time I've been able to actually sit down and watch the 500, screwed it up for all.

    That happened literally right in front of my dad and brother!! It was like 20 min after the race was “over” that they finally got him out of the car!!
    I have no idea how that spewing fuel didn’t ignite with that fire but somebody’s got some favors called in! Hope the guy is ok....last time I saw a police escort leading the ambulance from that track....
