Homestead, Florida - November 20, 2011 (3:54pm)   I had lots of fun at the Ford 400 NASCAR race, which took place at the Homestead-Miami Speedway.I am next to a 2010 NHRA full throttle funny car Ford Mustang that was driven by 15-time champion John Force. As a teenager, I became extremely fascinated by race cars and in fact I wanted to grow up to become one! It’s a good thing that I didn’t because it’s such a dangerous sport. Back then, I was also into art: During my classes, I often drew pictures of funny cars and these were my own original designs. I think I still have most of them somewhere. The drawings of my hot rods were funny indeed but my teachers (except for my art teacher) did not seem to think so because I rarely paid attention to them as I was too busy goofing off, LOL! I just couldn’t help it that drawing pictures of racing cars (and superheroes, too) was so much more interesting to me than listening to my teachers’ boring lectures!
