WOOHOO today I'm taking my Sunday Selfie
from behind the wheel of a moving race car!!!
(And the 2014 Sprint Cup Champion's car at that...just sayin'.)
Since she always calls my zoomies the "running of the Mudpie 500" I decided to start hosting an annual giveaway to celebrate this national holiday in our house!
This year Mommy and I each chose a couple items for our prize package: a feather mousie and package of Nip Nibblers for the kitties, and a wooden "Best Cat Ever" box sign and Lake Champlain chocolate bar for the cat moms.
In the event that more than one of you pick the winning driver, we will draw a name from a hat. If no one picks the winning driver, we will move on to second place, etc., until a winner is chosen. Last year no one chose the winner Denny Hamlin, but my friend Cathy Keisha chose "the guy from NJ" (Martin Truex Jr.) who finished second, so she won the prize!
Here are your driver choices:
Here's the thing about the Daytona 500: it's a total crap shoot so you don't need to know a thing about racing in order to predict a winner. It's known as a "restrictor plate race" which limits speed and increases safety, to provide an equal level of competition. The cars all run in crazy scary packs and winning is more a matter of luck than anything.
Back in 2007 our driver Kevin Harvick won the race. My grandpa's boss at the time stood to win $1,000 if Mark Martin won, and Martin was leading until the last turn of the last lap when Kevin came from 7th place to win by fractions of a second. It was a thrilling finish, but grandpa never told his boss that Kevin was our driver! Check it out:
Good luck, have fun, and may
the best man Kevin Harvick win!!!
