Just a couple short months ago I had the chance to attend the Travel Media Showcase conference in Charlotte, a couple things happened while I was there. I met with so many amazing different people and learned about their fabulous travel destinations and I had the chance to tour Charlotte Motor Speedway, take a ride in a NASCAR and really experience what’s involved in driving at top speeds around a track.
I came home knowing that I had to try and get my Son to a race. He’s a 14-year-old boy who still believes he’s going to grow up and be a professional driver. Let’s be honest, if I could get Joey to a NASCAR race, I was going to get the “Coolest Mom of the Year Award”! So, I started planning and with the help of Visit Cabarrus & Charlotte Motor Speedway, the surprise trip reveal was in motion.
Check out the video below where I told him we were going AND we were taking my Dad along! He’s not a kid that shows a lot of emotion, so his reaction was priceless!!
Our trip will be filled with everything that Cabarrus County and NASCAR have to offer and we’re doing it all in three days! This trip will include everything from Race Shop Tours to the Bank of America 500 on Sunday. We’ll be sharing it ALL on Instagram Stories over HERE so be sure to follow along and be sure to follow the #WhereRacingLives on social media for all the great photos and updates from the weekend!
This surprise bucket list trip is going to be an adventure my son will never forget! I cannot wait to see him light up with his first glimpse of Charlotte Motor Speedway!
