Denny Hamlin's childhood letter proves dreams come true

Do you remember that assignment when you were in elementary school? The one that asked you, "What do you want to be when you grow up?" or "What is your dream?"

Well, Daytona 500 winner Denny Hamlin's response has surfaced, via his mother on Twitter:

The letter reads:

"The Daytona 500

My wish is to win the Daytona 500. If I won the Daytona 500, I would like it to come true on February 17, 1998. My car would be red, white, blue and gold. Just like Bill Elliott's car. If I do win the Daytona 500, I could win 1,000,000 dollars. My crew chief would be Gary Barden and my tire changer would be Ernie Elliott. The reason for all of this is because I love racing."
