I had the opportunity to take a media pace car ride on Daytona International Speedway this afternoon with none other than Brett Bodine.
Being able to go around Daytona International Speedway in a Ford Mustang Official Pace Car, hugging the backstretch wall, going a 130 mph was an incredible experience!! I was also treated to what other media members call a “Brett Bodine Special” - Bodine drives around Daytona International Speedway with ONE hand on the steering wheel, going into the turns!
Going that speed at the 31 degrees of banking in the turns really makes it look as though you are driving up a hill and boy, those G forces…..! Bodine actually brought the Mustang to a crawl in the turn just so I could feel the 31 degree angle. Amazing!
I got out of the car and couldn’t stop smiling! I told Bodine “It might be 104 degrees out here, but I have goosebumps!!!” It was an overwhelming experience I will forever treasure!
