Dega Baby

No, this post is not at all about babies, don't let the title fool you!

A couple weekends ago, we went with my father-in-law Bob to Talladega Motor Speedway where he was able to drive an actual Nascar race car. I must admit at first I didn't know what to expect, I was just going to show my support, but it ended up being a lot of fun and a neat experience.

We got to go onto pit row which is in the infield of the race track. None of us are big Nascar fans, but there is something neat about being on such a famous race track and seeing just how big it is!

Bob took a short class about driving the car and then waited for his turn to drive the car. There was an area where family and friends could hang out and sit and watch their 'drivers' while they raced around the track. We brought chairs and drinks and tailgated while we waited and watched.

Ryan, Matts brother made a sign that said "Go Ricky Bobby". It was hilarious!

This is Bob driving--he got up to 170 mph!!

So if anyone is looking for a unique and thrilling gift for a loved one in the Alabama area, they may want to get them this Nascar Experience (aka the Dale Jarrett Experience). Bob loved it!
