Brian Kudlicki, a resident of Carrollton, Texas, was treated to a unique experience on Saturday, November 2. He won a “Money Can’t Buy It” experience. A promotional contest that ran for thirty eight weeks for Season Ticket holders at Texas Motor Speedway. Kudlicki became an Honary Pit Crew Member for a day on the No. 11 team of Elliott Sadler.
Kudlicki, and his son, Mike, were picked up Saturday morning of the NASCAR Nationwide Series race in a golf cart and driven to the infield to the team’s motorcoach. There they met, Elliott Sadler, who sat and talked with him in his home away from home. “I don’t know that I will ever get to do anything like this again, truly a once in a lifetime experience” Kudlicki said.
Sadler was gracious enough to spend time visiting with Kudlicki and his son before his busy day began. Earlier that week, Sadler was tapped to drive in the NASCAR Cup Series AAA Texas 500 race as well as his regular ride, so he had a full day of practice, qualifying and a race ahead of him. After having a nice conversation, the Kudlicki’s walked out with autographs and a picture with him inside Sadler’s motorcoach. After the meet and greet, they continued on to the #11 team hauler for a tour. Another first time experience as race fans and season ticket holders since day one at Texas Motor Speedway. They also had garage area credentials and spent some time walking around seeing various teams working on their cars.
Another big treat the Kudlicki’s expereinced, was spending time talking to Travis Pastrana in the garage area. “Another really nice guy” Kudlicki exclaimed. Following their garage experience, they made their way out for another experience near the stage for driver intros, which was up close and personal. “We spent the rest of the day in the garage area and then watched the race from the pits rooting for Elliott and the team,” Kudlicki said.
After the race, Kudlicki and his son walked away after having a great time, thanking Texas Motor Speedway for this once in a lifetime experience.
