TEXAS/CHARLOTTE

25th Anniversary Trip

 


******* A very sincere thanks to my brother, Brad, for suggesting

that Tambra and I take this trip for our 25th instead of Hawaii..I don't

think anything could top this!!!!!! ******

Day 10

Here we are in the Charlotte airport getting ready to head home. It's been a blast, but

we are also ready to get back home and see the family. I'll put together a

"greatest clips" video soon and post it. Chuck, thanks again for the use of

the laptop!!!!

Day 9...

we went to Michael Waltrip Racing(looks like they had a crappy day

at qualifying) and Joe Gibbs Racing... Michaels shop was awesome and the only

one that would actually let you see inside each area... this was our last day.

We have had a great time and are actually looking forward to getting back home. I have

a new appreciation for what all is involved in racing and really feel for teams

such as Michael and Dale Jarrett when they don't make "the show"  All 3

cars from MWR are coming back home. That's gotta suck and be bad for moral

around the shop...hope they get it together...

We went back to visit the Gordon/Johnson buildings at Hendricks..
