Bros Score 1-2 at Indy Hot Wheels IndyCar Jr GP
In addition to winning the all-expense paid trip to California, the finalists also scored tickets to the 102nd Indy 500, and garage passes on Saturday to meet with James Hinchcliffe, the mentor of Indy’s three finalists.
“They surprised me with the tickets to the race on Sunday and garage passes on Saturday,” says Jeremy. “So, I turned around and drove home Thursday night then worked Friday, paid the guys Friday afternoon, and then turned around and drove back to Indy. Stayed Friday/Saturday night and drove home on Sunday. It’s been a long few days, we’re still walking on water, man. We just can’t believe this one race and we’re going to California – it’s just so surreal.”
The Bolen family is turning the September California trip into a complete family vacation, with mom and their two other sons in tow.
“I didn’t take anyone with me to Indianapolis, so this time we’ll have the whole family in their cheering section, instead of me just looking like the idiot in the corner,” says Jeremy.
And how does Jeremy like the chances of his sons taking top honors in the championship race?
“I’m going in with the expectation to win. I expect Jacob to be in first, at least on the podium if not first. I know Joshua’s going to come with his A-game. It’s so exciting two of the nine kids that are going are mine. So now if I can put those two on the podium, out of those nine kids, it just validates their hard work. I’m so excited for them…it’s going to be something that we will never forget. So, no matter what happens, you know, we’re just excited to be a part of it. “
The qualifying round to determine the next three finalists takes place at K1 Speed Arlington in Texas this Thursday, June 7th. The three finalists will win the same grand prize as the three finalists in Indy but will be mentored by 2017 IndyCar Champion Josef Newgarden.
