The vice president of marketing from Pirelli World Challenge gave out free tickets to military members for the weekend races. Unfortunately they were only for the service members and not their families. God provided though and Mathieu was given an extra ticket from some random people who weren't using theirs and someone from work couldn't use theirs either. So not only could I and the kids go but Mathieu's Mom who was coming in town Saturday could go as well! We had a wonderful time, the kids got to see any car they wanted and the hospitality was amazing! We were truly blessed!
