LUCKY TICKETS

Why I pack it: "In 2009, my uncle Johnny called me about attending my Nationwide race at Talladega. I bought two grandstand tickets only to find out that he couldn't make it. Well, I won that race, my first Nationwide victory. Now the lucky tickets just sit on the dash of my motor home, 24/7."
