(NEW YORK) — A fleet of Hyundai cars were used to send a sweet message from a teenager to her astronaut dad who is working at the International Space Station.

Using 11 Hyundai Genesis sedans, stunt drivers helped create what Guinness called the world’s largest tire track image — spelling out “Steph <3s You!” in Nevada’s Delamar Dry Lake.

The image measured 59,808,480.26 square feet and was able to reach Stephanie’s father in space. While Stephanie appeared in the Hyundai video, the company did not identify her father.

Astronaut Terry Virts, who is currently the commander of Expedition 43 has a teenage daughter named Stephanie.

Virts, who conducted several space walks during the previous expedition with then-commander Butch Wilmore, is set to return to Earth next month.
