JENNERSTOWN, Pa. — An 81-year-old Pennsylvania woman celebrated her birthday by taking a ride in a speedway race car.
The Somerset Daily American (http://bit.ly/Xb9w6N ) reports that Betty Evans felt zooming across the Jennerstown Speedway track was the perfect way to celebrate her milestone year. The speedway is about 60 miles southeast of Pittsburgh.
Family and friends brought her to Jennerstown Saturday to take a 100-mph ride in a mid-1990s Chevrolet Monte Carlo race car. Evans crawled in through the car’s passenger-side window instead of opening the door to make the experience as genuine as possible.
