I Raced at Sonoma Raceway, Took the Cars 3 Pit Stop Challenge and Learned the History of NASCAR Racing

#Cars3Event Sonoma Raceway

You know your day’s going to be amazing when it starts out with your bus driving straight onto the race track at Sonoma Raceway. No, this wasn’t a dream. Nor a video game.

ABC’s ‘The Toy Box’ Overflows With Ideas, Enthusiasm and Imagination

#TheToyBox #ABCTVEvent

Thinking back to my childhood, I never actually owned a legit toy box. I kind of just tossed my toys in piles. Marvel Secret Wars figures in the closet. Hot Wheels under the bed. Uno cards on my bookshelf. You get the picture. In a sense, you could say my entire house was a toy box, with ample playability just an arms’ length away. Now as an adult, I still don’t have a real toy box, …
