road trip to emporia

What a freakin week. I didnt think it could get any better, but it definitely did! We left for NC at 8am this morning and had planned on stopping in Emporia, VA, the hometown of my fav, Elliott Sadler. Around 11ish, we made our way thru town, and discovered that his family owns a gas station/travel center. We filled up the gas and then saw a sign for the official fan club souvenier place. So, we drove the mile there and it was this little building just behind their car dealership. We walked in and all of elliott and hermies trophies were in there, including the ones from elliotts 2 wins last year (they’re huge!) AND his overall 9th place trophy for racing last year. There were also hoods from wrecked cars, and tons of merchandise. We were the only ones in there, and we started talking to this lady. I was wearing my Carolina sweatshirt and she was talking about how Elliott was a big fan and how Hermie actually graduated from UNC. She talked to us for about 10 minutes, and then she mentioned blah, blah, blah they were her SONS. All this time I was hanging out with Elliott’s MOM!!!!!!!!!!! weiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiird! it was SO SO SO Rad. We took some pix, talked about their family, and talked for over 20 minutes. I bought a die-cast car and she said she’d get him to sign it and they’d mail it to me. SO RAD!
Anyway, we took a few pix with the hoods & trophies. I’ll post them when I get back to VA on sunday.
YAY ME! Best week EVER!
