Simba and Gizmo’s Blog
We are so excited because it is November which not
only means it’s time for the holidays, but also the end of another great
NHRA Full Throttle season which means Dan and Ashley will finally come
home! As in, un pack their suitcases and put them away in the
cupboard…home! Gizmo and I are so excited to have them back as they’ve
had a very crazy last few months with the Countdown to the Championship.
Ashley and her team did an amazing job this year (in my feline opinion)
and even though they didn’t end up the Champion, they’re #1 in my book!
In my blog this month, I decided to do a little re cap of my favorite
moments of the 2010 season. Just so you know, I have no idea what Gizmo
will write about. I assure you in won’t be as structured and readable as
my blog, and there is a chance it won’t even have to do anything with
racing or our owners. If he writes about dried salmon, don’t be
surprised! Below are my top 5 moments of the 2010 NHRA Full Throttle
#5- Cats 101 on the Animal Planet. This summer, Gizmo
and I became celebrities as we were featured on the television program,
and became quite famous. We can’t sign autographs, but lets put it this
way, if we could, our paws would be tired!
#4- The El Monte RV Road Trip. Dan and Ashley rented
an RV and took us on the road for 3 weeks to Seattle, Sonoma and Denver!
It was awesome! We got to go the races, attend the D Team dinners, and
cheer our driver Ashley on, from the front window of the RV! Go D Team!
#3- John Force’s Pomona Winner’s Circle- John won the
first race of the season and we were there so we got to take part in the
Winner’s Circle pictures. Our furry cheeks were tired from smiling!
#2- Halloween 2010- We got to dress up and do
Halloween in Las Vegas, aka: Sin City and it was great! Ashley’s dad won
that race as well, and we all dressed up in our costumes to celebrate!
#1- Queen of Hearts Tribute to D Team Car- This is by
far, my favorite part of the season. Ashley did a special car and
surprised her team, and Gizmo and me by doing a paint scene with all of
us on it! How cool is that? We are on a car that went over 300 miles per
hour. I definitely think Gizmo and I are the quickest cats on the
Where should I start? This has been a cool year so
far! Simba told me to write out my top 5 favorite moments of the race
season, so here it goes!
#5- When we got to have a treat after filming the
Animal Planet show.
#4- All the fans petting us in the winner’s circles
we got to be in.
#3- Taking OFF my Halloween costume
#2- Getting cat milk every night before bed. Yummy!
#1- Getting to be on the side of Ashley’s race car…
and getting dried salmon treats.
