Wow! What an incredible day my wife and I had at the “Get your Heart Racing” Henry Ford Health System benefit event at the Dearborn Test track! THANK YOU FORD, FORD SOCIAL, TEAM DETROIT and HENRY FORD HEALTH!!! When Ford does an event, every thing is top notch. The absolute best cars and trucks to see and drive, great people and wow, what a location. This facility is second to none in the world, and the cars show it. We were so amazed with the constant punishment these cars and trucks would take, and not a rattle or squeek…even when sliding sideways at blinding speed! I was also impressed to hear some of the history of the site going back to the early days of Ford. Then after getting to drive a 2013 Raptor, Boss 302 and a hot little Focus, Vaughn Gittens and Robbie Buhl really heated things up demonstrating how WORLD CHAMPION DRIFT CAR drivers do it and the Mustang GTR’s they do it in….phenominal! The Monster Energy pit party was excellent! Food was great and the auction items were things we could all enjoy. In order to do our part to help the Vascular center, we purchased tickes for the silent auction and the door prize (a beautiful little “hot rod” Ford Focus). We didn’t win the Foucs or any of the auction items, but it felt good to help such a worthy cause and we appreciated just being there. We were also tempted to bid on the one-of-a-kind Mustang GT500…but we still have kids in college….so the GT500 will have to wait a while longer….Our 2011 F150 Raptor will have something to look forward to in the garage….LOL.
Everything was great, from the food to the shuttle busses, and especially all the people we met throughout the day…truly a CLASS ACT for a great cause. FORD, you all get a “10.”
