Virginia 529 College Savings 250 - Night 1

(Be sure to read about the activities before the race.)

Chuck had learned from his earlier experience inside the track. He got the girls' headsets ready to go before entering. He also packed his stuff so that they could set up quickly once they got to their seats. Still, he still figured the girls would only last about 50 (out of 250) laps before they were ready to go home.

I asked Lucy what she was doing in the top right picture below and she said, "I'm saying, GO Jimmie GO!" You can see Leland the bottom left picture below holding the Sprint Fanview (handheld TV).

The girls lasted the entire 250 laps of the race and absolutely loved every minute of it.

You might want to check your volume before you hit play on this video - it shows you just how loud it was and why the headsets were a necessity.
Of course, hundreds of pictures were taken. After hearing about all the fun they had, I was so excited to go with them on Saturday.


  1. I LOVE THE REDNECK GATES!!!! When Johna and I come to visit next year (can we?!) will you take us to one of these Redneck Reunions?! Love it and love you guys!

  2. Can't wait to read about Saturday! Houston has been really into Cars lately (his potty has Lightning on it) and I think I have watched it 10 times in the last 2 weeks! I consider it as my first step towards becoming a redneck (aka Gates):)
