My oldest daughter just called to tell me she could get tickets for the Richmond NASCAR race for my three sons and I (next son moves in tomorrow). It is a night race at the end of April on a 3/4-mile oval and arguably one of the best tracks in NASCAR. The tickets are for Iraq/Afghanistan war veterans.
If my extension does not go through, I will have just one more year to score this kind of swag for currently serving veterans. Chalid, our new son, said he would like to go to a race. I did not know when we could go, but free tickets made the planning much easier!
