Drags


071.JPGYesterday was my grandson Cooper's 12 th073.JPG birthday so I took him to our local drag strip for some fun times with my best buddy,, My oldest son Chris is the crew chief for his Father-in -law with a Nostalgia fuel dragster,   spent the whole day having a ball,, They qualified well and will have the finals today  ,, Coop had a blast and didn't want to leave kinda early, but his mom had some plans for his B.D, but we did stay till they got in their final qualifying run,  Think they will do good today,

If I could have sat in a car like that at his age, I would have exploded with excitement and joy. Even as a jaded old fart now, I'd love to wiggle my fat butt into that seat for a moment.

From the smile on his face, he was either so giddy he could not express his excitement, or he has a tremendous amount of self control. I would love to be able to do that again.

Yeah  Cooper is a 1 in a million kids,, well mannered, works hard, expects nothing from anyone, and is just a ALL AROUND kid,, that smile was as serious as they get,, he's a real gear head for sure,,,

I just got a note from my son that works on the car,, he is going to  start practicing driving that car next week so he can get his NHRA license,, and start doing the driving , AND making it run,,   PAT (car owner and chris's Father-in- law) just don't have what it takes to get the job done,, bad reaction time don't know squat about racing etc etc etc,  so we'll see how Chris does I guess  should be great entertainment anyway,,,, we have always seemed to be involved in some kind of racing,, mostly circle track , Quarter midgets, late models, sprint cars or some thing to throw money at,,

Quality "COOP" time - - - I envy you Amigo - - - not only is he an exceptional young man but he's also from some damned good stock. The acorn don't fall far from the tree and you should be proud, as I know you are.

Happy Belated Birthday, Coopster,
Em
