Wayne and Anabel Knapp's son, Estal, came in the evening of May 6 and stayed all night with them. The next day he drove to the Richard Petty Driving Experience at Kansas Speedway, in Kansas City, Kan. Those attending could either ride or drive. Estal chose to drive under supervision of professionals. Each driver made eight laps and came in for further instruction. Then each driver went back for 10 more laps. Estal's speed was 94 miles per hour at the end. Each successful driver was awarded a graduation certificate. He really enjoyed it.
