Our first race weekend of 2009 has come and gone and it was once again a very exciting one. Some of the highlights from the weekend for me were:

~Meet Miss Sprint Cup-Monica Palumbo and Kyle Petty at the AutoTrader.com Gears & Greens Charity Golf Classic. Kyle did an amazing piece on the tournament that you can watch at http://www.nascar.com/video/cup/2009/04/04/cup.tex.unleashed.nascar/index.html?MostPopular

~Seeing all the kids come out and have such a great time at the Aaron's Fish & Fun at the Races. I was also excited that I got to meet & have my picture made with Digger, Aaron's Lucky Dog and Sparky!!

~Meeting the Jagger Mafia from 105.3 The Fan and all the walkers that braved the cold to come out to our walk on Sunday.

I want to thank all of the wonderful volunteers and friends of the Texas Chapter of Speedway Children's Charities that helped make the weekend so great.

I can't wait for our next event on Saturday, May 9th-Laps for Charity & Mini Lemans Challenge. This is truly my favorite event of the year! Getting to see how happy people get driving around Texas Motor Speedway is always exciting.

I hope to see you there!!
