Winner: Sue Herron Ellison! Congratulations!
J-Man has a need for speed! Anything fast and fun is his idea of a wonderful time. And because of that, he has been a Hot Wheels fan since he was a little boy.
I’ve played with those little cars with him, making them zoom along the kitchen floor, for as long as I can remember. But now, he’s found a way to make them go even faster, do even better tricks, with the Double Dare Snare Race Track!
So what exactly is this super speedy contraption? Well, it’s only the coolest thing to happen to Hot Wheels in a very long time! It consists of a double racetrack that allows two Hot Wheels cars to to race side by side down the track, through the loop and jump over the edge of a canyon! The winning car is scooped up into the snare and the loosing car must make the jump or fall! How much fun is that? This amazing race track was actually inspired by the real life crew of Team Hot Wheels, and they hit the bulls eye on tons of summer fun! And to celebrate, I let J-Man invite a few friends over to get in on the racing action! We prepared some snacks, set up the Double Dare Snare Race Track outside and got ready for some good old-fashioned races!
From the first moment, the boys were super excited (and competitive)! And it was so much fun that even some of the girls wanted to join in and, hesitantly, the boys let them. Because the squeals of delight and desire to win was contagious. And the pure joy that came from watching the cars race down the track and make the jump was quickly felt by all!
And race after race, the excitement built as the children waited to see who would come out on top. But in the end, it didn’t really matter who won because a fabulous time was had by all and that was what mattered. So we declared everyone a winner, cooled off with drinks and snacks and planned a date to race the day away again tomorrow!
And while J-Man will have this track to play with in the coming weeks, something he is just as excited about is that the Double Dare Snare Track will be coming to life this year at the X Games on June 30th! With a real life track measuring over six stories tall and two real life racers attempting this never before seen stunt, it’s sure to be memorable! We’ve got our calendars marked to watch all the action on ABC starting at 11:20 PDT on Saturday, June 30th! Here’s a little teaser to get you as excited as we are!
Woo Hoo! That’s going to be one amazing stunt to watch! So are you ready for the action? Well, to help you get ready (and make you an all star in your little guy’s eyes) Mattel is going to be giving a FREE GIFT with every purchase from the Mattel Shop between June 25th and July 1st! So not only can you get this amazing track for hours of summer time fun, but you can also get a free gift as an added bonus! Thanks Mattel!
