From Holly Nemec in Midland, S.D.
My husband Randy and I were about to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary in June of 2005. For Christmas in 2004, in anticipation of this event, I surprised him with tickets to the race in Las Vegas. We took 10 days off work to take our time driving there, spending a week in Vegas enjoying the sights and of course the races, and driving back home to Midland, South Dakota. Our kids thought we were never coming home!
While we were there, we had pit road access and a VIP suite on Saturday, courtesy of a friend of ours who worked for Sprint at the time. My husband was ecstatic the entire time we were there. We’ve been back three times since then, and once to Phoenix. We have been huge fans of Matt since 2002 and will continue to support him, cheer him on, and hopefully make it to more race tracks and ultimately be able to see him win his second Championship!
Attached is a photo of Randy in the VIP suite at Las Vegas in 2005. Best of luck to the #20 Team in 2015. We will be cheering loudly here in South Dakota as we rearrange OUR schedules to fit the NASCAR schedule!
