Special Appearance
The #52 Limited Late Model made a special appearance at Lincoln Elementary (Nathan's school) on Wednesday, April 21, 2010 for "show and tell".  Kindergarten through 5th grade were able to get an up close look of the race car and hear the roar of the engine.  Phil answered questions from the students about racing and race car safety.  The Texas Roadhouse Armadillo Mascot also arrived to greet the children during their lunch hour and recess.
