What to do? What say you?

Some of you may know that my son is a junior racer. This year he is racing in the MBAA series here in AZ in the 17-18 Beginner category. Long story short, he has a 10 point lead going into the final race up in Flagstaff next month. 3 wins, a third and a 5th.
My question to you guys is, what do I do to celebrate this accomplishment for him? Suggestions?

Take him out for dinner. He looks like he could use a hamburger or two.

He pulled it off Couchtater. Not without drama though. As you can see from the pics, he took some damage to the derailleur. Didn't even feel he said. Dropped the chain, put it on and pushed off, dropped it again and he kept pedalling to try and get it back on, wrapped it up and twisted the cage, locking the wheel up. This happened while leading it, with 1.5 miles left. He ran it in, pushing and dragging more like it, to finish 6th.
With dropping the lowest race (this one) he finished with a 4 point lead.

We decided to send him to Colorado for a week long camp riding with some pro's at Fort Lewis College and their collegiate team.

Edit: can't get pics to upload right now.

Finally...

Was able to get the pics to attach.
Yep, wrapped the chain, twisted it and the cage on the derailleur.
Pretty cool trophy.
And up on the podium. He's friends with both of those guys and will be racing this fall in the highschool NICA league with them.

So proud of this kid.
