It’s Your Birthday
© 2017 Adam Kenneth Campbell
John Guehl from Pittsburgh, PA rounds turn 7 in his 1939 Mercury Sprint during a warmup lap Sunday morning on the Schenley Park Vintage Grand Prix racetrack. This car is my son Charlie’s favorite because his birthday is 9-9-9. For the driver, it must feel like he’s powered by Satan himself between the monster roar of that engine and looking down to see “666” staring back from the hood of his car.
My son likes this car because he was born on September 9th, 2009 (9/9/9) so that‘s his lucky number.
