We’re big IndyCar fans around this house. One day, ONE DAY, we’ll make it to the Indy500 (taking free tickets from anyone who is giving them away).
It was sad for us when Danica Patrick jumped over to NASCAR. She may not have been the best Indy driver (consistent, though), but she did do a lot for the organization’s image.
Henry loves her. He’s been smitten with her since he was small. He’s not pleased about her move to NASCAR either because he doesn’t like watching the “slow cars” race.
But he wrote her a little piece of fan mail at school. I’ll be sending it, like the one I sent to Jimmy Buffett, to her fan mail address and maybe she’ll respond.
She did tweet at me once, see?
So, for your reading enjoyment, I present to you the letter to Danica Patrick.
Translation for those who don’t speak first grader writing.
Dear Danica Patrick,
You are my favorite Indycar and NASCAR driver. I like your commercials. I have two toys of you.
Please write back.
Maybe she will, son. Maybe she will.
