I was really excited to go to Crystal Motor Speedway, for the Great Lakes Nationals. They had a lot of cars.
Ron let me ride in the truck with him to pack in the track, it was so fun when we were on the high side it felt like we were going to tip over. We got a flat tire so we got to go to our pit crew/repair shop I pretended I was in a NASCAR getting work done. The best part of it was visiting with Ron, he is SO nice, funny and we not only have a love for racing in common but we have a love of basketball in common. Ron is even going to compete in a basketball game in Utah.
I got to meet one of my heroes Dustin Daggett, He is as great as a person as he is as a driver.
I took time to visit a little with Tom Dusen and his cute poodle Pepper (he is kind of old so he looks like salt and pepper, the dog not Tom Hehehe). I also met Brenton Mitcheltree he drives #24 mini wedge (He is Toms grandson).
As I was walking by, I met Logan Nickerson # 21 Late Model, He is a young driver with lots of talent and so nice.
I also got to meet another nice guy and great driver Myron DeYoung #7D IMCA Modified
I ate my dinner which was a delicious hot dog.
I loved walking through the pits and seeing the cars, the people working on the cars and the drivers.
I was so happy I got to see a bonus feature because it was rained out the week before. The racing was terrific.
I like to hear Mark Cowan announcing he is so good and clear,
Mark is so nice and so funny. I have known him for years.
Another driver I had the opportunity to meet was Joey Fowler #19 Street stock
While we were visiting with Joey, Ron stopped by and I got to experience one of the best times of my life, I got to ride along to push off traditional sprint cars, and watch the race from the infield.
After I got back grandstand side, I got to enjoy more great racing and got to visit a little with Mary Jane she is so very nice, she must love to laugh being she is married to Ron.
After the races I made a point to go on the track to say Hi to Ryan (Ron’s son). He gave me a piece of metal that he picked up off the track (It may be a piece of junk but I will treasure it).
Thank you everyone that took your time to visit with me and Thank you so much Ron for making this such a special night.
I can’t wait for next year to go back to Crystal Motor Speedway.
“See you at the races”
