4/22/2024: Radford Racing School

Bella O -

Last week was a bit different than my usual day at Classic Promenade. I had the opportunity to attend Radford Racing school for a tour and some hot laps on Thursday. I reached out to them a couple weeks ago telling them what I’ve been up to in regards to my senior project as well as my desire to pursue a career in motorsports. I was not expecting a response, however; they informed me that they would love to have me come down to the school to take a few videos to use for my final product. I brought Sarah along with me, because I knew she would enjoy this experience as well and so that she could help me record videos.

At 8 A.M. we showed up to the track and were welcomed by Christine who was interested to hear about my project. She introduced us to Danny who gave us a brief history and tour of the school. He drove us around in one of the Dodge cars and took us on a ride for some hot laps. That was easily one of the coolest things I have experienced, as we had to have been going at least 150mph. Everyone their was very welcoming and kind to allow us to wander the grounds and learn about what they do.

    Wow, must have been exciting to experience speeding on the track firsthand.

    Bella, I am so proud of you for stepping up to the challenges for this project! I want to go visit this place and see all the skid marks you left on the track! :) Your presentation is getting so much better each step of the way. You are a treasure that has been a thrill to work with and get to know. I'll miss seeing you next school year, so you'll have to reach out and let me know how you are doing. Let me know if you need any ideas or thoughts that might help you...or just to talk track "stuff." PS...I'm rooting for Lando Norris! Season #2 100 Days to Indy starts tonight 8:00 on CW. Yes, I'll be at the Indianapolis 500 next month. Woo Hoo...
    That sounds intense!
