Farmers-Racing

PAKISTAN, Attock : A Pakistani farmer guides his bulls as he competes in a traditional bull race in Khunda village in the northwestern district of Attock, some 80 kilometers from Islamabad on January 3, 2015. Tens of thousands of people gather whenever there is a bull race held in Pakistan which are usually the highlight of festivals organized in rural areas of the Asian country, and attract lots of spectators due to their thrilling nature. The traditional competition attracts landlords and farmers from all around the province where the race is held, and they all bring their fastest and strongest bulls in hopes of gaining a reputation.

I was selected as a winner in a sweepstakes to represent the Army, and to be a guest of Farmers Racing for the Quicken Loans Race For Heroes 500 at Phoenix International Raceway over the weekend. Got to meet Kasey Kahne before the race; as well as tour the pit/garage area.

A very memorable Veteran’s Day weekend! I was able to share the experience with my father, who served 30 years in the Army.
