My son LOVES classic cars, he gets that from my dad. It’s just in his blood. He can name the make and model of most classic cars, sometimes even the year and engine type. He has been to the Daytona 500 four times now and is really hoping that we can go again in 2019. He has car posters hung up all over his room and his career goals are to own a mechanic shop chain one day. Needless to say, he would absolutely LOVE the Daytona Turkey Run, but you don’t have to be as big of a car nut as him to enjoy all the fun and happenings going on this Thanksgiving weekend.
