Fathers Share Best Car-Related Memories Involving Their Kids

It’s common on Father’s Day to hear daughters and sons talk about their fathers. Share stories of growing up with them. Pay tribute to them.

It’s less common, we think, to see or hear fathers talk about being fathers. So we teamed up with our pals at Summit Racing to ask this question on Summit Racing’s Facebook page.

Per usual, tons of people had tons of great responses.

We grabbed some of our favorites that included photos, and are sharing them here.

Please don’t forget to extend Happy Father’s Day wishes to the dads in your life, and to all of you fathers and fathers-to-be out there, we wish you a very happy Father’s Day.

“What is the Best Car/Truck/Racing-Related Memory You’ve Had with Your Son or Daughter?”

Barry A.

Best of show and Top 20 1st place on my sons birthday.

John O.

12yrs ago giving my 16yr old son a 64 Galaxie for Christmas.
7yrs ago…bringing home a 1966 Mustang for my 16yr old daughter’s 1st car.

Mike H.

Been 4 1/2 years now but brought my daughter home from the hospital in my 70 Monte Carlo.

John M.

Helping my son build this.

Blake D.

This past weekend I took my son to his first Dirt Late Model Dream at Eldora Speedway.

Steve B.

The night she got her first win, and I won the same night.

Mac B.

I was working on my 1970 Cutlass when my daughter came into the garage. She said she wanted to help daddy so she grabbed tools and handed them to me and say under the car and watched me work.

Gregory W.

My son registered my 69 Camaro under his name at a show and he won a trophy.

Tim W. Jr.

The drive home with our project. My son kept a tally of the thumbs up he was getting from cars passing us by. At every stop he had to brag about the deal we got and even turned down cash offers to buy it from us! Can’t wait to cruise with him driving it!

Albert B.

I would have to say the best moment in our family racing history was last August at the Bonneville Salt Flats. My son Pat Brown set the record in A/FRMR in Cole Cutler’s Flying T.

Brandon C.

When my daughter straight up asked to take senior Prom pics in front of my truck!

Tom F.

Taking my boy to car shows with his truck every summer he gets excited to get it out and go to shows now.

Ben L.

Building derby cars!

Dave A.

Her first trophy.

Tommy K.

My son starting his first race in a Super Street dirt car. Lots more to the story related to my dad but definitely had a lump in my throat….
