Daytona did not end up like we had hoped.
|#88 Dale Ernheart - who we want to win!!!|
The rain would just not stop. For the first time in 52 years, the Daytona 500 was canceled. Rodger, Michael, Nanna, Yasmina, Uncle Steve, cousin Jake, cousin Natalie, cousin Laura, cousin Anthony and Aunt Janet all left at 9:00 in the morning and sat around all day in the rain.
The only thing they got to see was a few fire trucks and some really big blow dryers that were trying to dry the track. But the rain refused to cooperate.
The officials finally canceled the race about6:00pm. So they all walked the 2 miles back to the cars in the rain and headed back to Aunt Janet’s house. It was not a total loss however; the girls got to spend some more time with the family and finally got to meet Uncle Steve.
It is now Monday night and the race is on!
We all have front row seats right here in the family room!
Go #88 – Dale Ernheart!
