Charlie's son Joe got his hands on the starting of a Dirt modified racecar.
Charlie has dreamed of driving on dirt and even though he won't race all the time, he would love to go try it out. He used to race on dirt in figure eight racing and loved it!
Joe built the racecar and gave it to Charlie for a Christmas gift. Everyone around the racing complex had to keep the secret and they had to keep hiding the car from Charlie because he would make the rounds to talk to everyone, needless to say it was quite an effort to keep it a secret for 6 months!!
Lots of people donated time or money to help get it built, mostly Joe doing all the work and buying parts when he could....
So 2015 will find Charlie and Joe racing their brand new awesome dirt car!
|Joe, Charlie and the Dirt car!|
|He can't stop smiling, no really, he can't....|
|Still needs a little work to finish it but Joe wanted to give it to him before Christmas trip.|
In other news, we took Ethan to see the Christmas lights they set up at the racetrack...Elvis, and Dinosaurs...how is that for Christmas Lights!!
