Sometimes, kids say the darnedest things. Other times, they predict future victories at the Daytona 500.

After Denny Hamlin narrowly won the NASCAR race on Sunday, his mother tweeted out a handwritten letter from his elementary school days.

Here's what the now-35-year-old wrote:

My wish is to win the Daytona 500. If I won the Daytona 500, I would like it to come true on Feb. 17, 1998. My car would be red, white, blue and gold just like Bill Elliott’s. If I do win the Daytona 500, I could win 1,000,000 dollars. … The reason for all of this is because I love racing.

How cool is that?
