Nathan, Dad, Mark, and I made the trip to the Nashville Superspeedway today and had a large time, despite the weather. We got totally drenched about 4:00, and another thunderstorm shortened the race, but we had a lot of fun in between. Everybody said, at one time or another during the outing, that this should be the start of something. Hey, I’d love that. I just hope Nashville is on the 2009 IRL schedule.
It’s a marvelous facility, and the competition was excellent. Danica had a strong car, and was one of four or five drivers with a good chance to win. She ultimately finished fifth.
I didn’t take my good camera because I didn’t want to babysit it, so I made these with my go-anywhere. They’re not great, but they’re real.
