Saturday night young Connor Lynn got the thrill of his life at his very first race ever! Earlier that evening his parents decided to visit Highland Rim Speedway to see for themselves what all the talk in the community was about. Years ago they had visited the facility several times.. However now they had been hearing a lot of good things about how the place was Alcohol Free and now Family friendly and wanted to see for themselves so they decided to carry their son to his very first Stock Car Race.
Connor took right to the fast cars picking his favorite car/driver out of each race and cheering them on. He was seen jumping and cheering on his new favorite drivers with all the other children and families.
Right before intermission time Connor was offered the chance of the young mans life… He was asked if he would like to take a Ride with the King… Connor was a little unsure at first but he had been having a great time and now out of nowhere he gets the chance to ride in a real race car… WOW… He said yes but was not 100% ready yet.. After taking a few minutes to talk with James (The King)Climer Connor jumped into that 55 chevy of The Kings and buckled those big seat belts up tight and away they went down into turn one and then through turn two, then they raced down the backstretch into turns three and four and then out onto the front stretch… WOW Connor was suddenly having the time of his life as he and the King Raced several more laps towards the checkered flag.
When the King stopped that 55 Chevy Connor removed his helmet, got unbuckled and climbed out of the 55 and jumped off the door only to turn around and look at the King and he reached back into the window to shake the Kings big tough hand.. Safe to say Connor got the thrill of a life time for a young man only 9 years old and King James Climer won himself another lifelong friend.
Thanks for visiting us at Highland Rim Speedway… See you next week!
