Governor Palin shared the following message and photo on her Facebook wall.
Our friend Parnelli Jones celebrated his birthday and the 50th anniversary celebration of his epic Indy 500 win. And he graciously shared his celebration (and cake) in little ol’ Wasilla with Trig after a caribou hunt earlier that day! We had such a fun time with this amazing American whose accomplishments are ingrained in our memories and even our hopes for tomorrow. We were honored to share this day with him. Fellow motorheads and productive capitalists know what I mean. His work ethic must be emulated. Bless Parnelli Jones and the Greatest Generation.
