Yesterday afternoon I received a phone call. It was from our local radio station. Last week they were advertising for their #cokezerohero contest. You nominated someone who was your hero and why.
Well I nominated Jonathan. I told them he is my hero because he does not let anything stand in his way of what he really wants. That his dream job is to be a flagman for Nascar. I told them how he practices flagging on the homemade flag stand his father built for him. He flags each one of the Nascar races that are on television.
Well they called to tell me I won. So he will get to go the Subway Firecracker 250 on July 4th at Daytona International Speedway. He had just told me about a week ago that he wanted to see about going to the race with his father. Well now he officially can because we have the tickets and they also gave him sprintzone fan zone passes. Which means he can go to the cars being worked on, meet the drivers that are at the area. It has been 2 years since he was at a Nascar race.
To tell you how excited he is…at the dinner table last night he brought out his “official” Nascar backpack with his needed supplies. What are his supplies? Ummm,..his American Flag, Sunoco checkered flag, Dale Jr. lanyard and race pins.
