Go Tony!  

Posted by Stephen Lowe in , , ,

Well, we made it through the off season and Racing is upon us again. The Budweiser Shootout is Saturday night at 8pm and I couldn't be more excited. Time to get the orange gear dusted off and make sure Ethan still remembers how to say Go Smoke Go! I have got to get to the races at Atlanta this year. I used to go all the time but haven't been to the last 3. There is nothing like the sound and the smell of standing on the inner fence at the exit of turn 4 as the cars come out of there, wide open throttle down the front straight.

My most memorable Nascar moment was the 2005 Brickyard 400. I was actually at that race in Indianapolis thanks to a vendor based there. Indy is Tony Stewart's home track and he had never had a win there. Thankfully I was there to root him on and he finally got the victory he had been chasing for so long. I got to go to the same race again in 2006. We had pre-race pit passes and I forgot my camera (idiot) but luckily I had my Treo camera phone and got this pic of the 20's pit box. Here is the story of the flag in the picture.

I love the smell of race fuel in the morning. Lets go Racing!
