It is my first big win with my sweeping hobby (not the broom kind, I never touch those.) I was selected as the National Grand Prize winner of a trip to Daytona Beach courtesy of the upcoming Cowboys and Aliens movie. Since Daytona is only a couple of hours drive for us, we were taken by limo to our hotel.
We enjoyed our night in the hotel hot tub, had a nice dinner, and got a great night's sleep in the very comfy Marriott bed. The next day we went to the track to pick up our tickets to the Nascar race, and were treated to a very big surprise! We were going to spend the afternoon with the race team.
We went in the hauler and met the driver, toured the pits, went on the track, and Bear was asked to be the official sign guy for the day!
|Everyone should go see Cowboys and Aliens!|
|These gas cans are huge!|

Thanks to Universal Pictures for sponsoring the Sweepstakes, and special thanks to Mike Wallace and the people at JD Motorsports for helping to make this a sporting event we will never forget. They Truly went above and beyond to make the day special.
