Saturday July 13

Saturday was simply incredible. We arrived as guests of the Kentucky Speedway and Fifth Third Bank. We were driven by a police officer via golf cart to the Fifth Third Bank Hospitality Area. We were greeted by our hosts, Fifth Third Bank and were surprised to see a sister race car at the site with our logo on it as well! The Fifth Third Bank hosts were gracious and provided us a lovely spot to see the race, eat snacks and dinner and even a private bathroom. We really felt we made friends with the bankers and other leadership team. We were honored to be featured in the Bank’s internal newsletter this morning!


We got a private meet and greet with Ricky Stenhouse Jr. at his Coach. It was truly amazing to shake his hand, and have a normal conversation about food, golf and his dog. Photo coming.

We then got a behind the scenes tour of the garage and pit area and then joined the Roush Fenway Racing Team with Fifth Third Bank for the National Anthem on the track.


We cooled off for a little while in the General Managers Suite courtesy of Kentucky Speedway and watched our team get the #1 spot for a while. Very exciting!


Finally! The Highlight!! Vanessa visited the Pit Row area with her hot pass, while Jim stayed with the girls at Fifth Third Bank’s hospitality area. The heat, noise and action was incredible.

All in all, it was an incredible experience to remember for a lifetime! Thanks again to all of our friends and family who helped get us the opportunity! Thank you again to Fifth Third Bank, Roush Fenway Racing and Kentucky Speedway!
