Of course I washed that hand silly. I'm not a crazy fan like that! LOL I was more embarrassed for being terrified to jump out of the back of the truck so I was beyond grateful for the hand to get down. I just wish I was a little more graceful but oh well, he'll never remember anyway thank God!!! In fact, unlike most, I think he's one sexy man, it's a turn on to see him handle stock cars and dirt cars with such talent and passion, love his philanthropic side and admire that greatly, but obviously from my ability to beat the "Tony Affect" I'm not crazy or madly in love (or infatuated) with him. He's a little out of my league even for fantasies...!! When you've given up on love, it's easy to control yourself. I just appreciated the fact that he's willing to talk to his fans and more importantly to talk to insignificant me. He autographed two of my trading cards. One was from his rookie season and his win at Homestead in 1999 (which I was there!) and the other was a more recent one. I guess I've watched him long enough now that I was excited to meet him for #### sure, but I was MORE excited to get the whole experience at once. I wanted a taste of what it was like at every race for these drivers and I got it. From meandering through the garage area to driver intros to riding around my hometrack to meeting my hero and experiencing what its like on the other side of the fence for once.

There's nothing like sitting behind him on the front stretch next to the fence and seeing and hearing all the fans screaming his name. It was at that moment that it finally hit me that I'm sitting behind the reigning Sprint Cup Champion and I must admit, it was both amazing and humbling at the same time. Did I mention I LOVE this sport? Well I do and I hope someday I can find a way inside. That would be the number one thing on my bucket list.

The rides were done by the NASCAR Foundation. They have all types of auctions for experiences that you can bid on. Check out their website by googling their name. They also have a FB page and Twitter account.

WOOHOO!! :D :D :D :D

Way to go, MLWW!!! Wow, both Tony AND Ryan. Maybe it worked out better that your first trip to MIS got rained out.

I'm so glad you got to realize your dream!

What IS next on your bucket list? ;) :lol:

Thank you. I don't know what is next. I would like to live on this 'high' for a bit before jumping into the next one. It's going to be hard to top it!! I still look at the picture and shake my head because it doesn't feel real. :) Time will tell the next adventure I take.
