In case you had not heard-- the Daytona 500 was kind of wacky.

Incase you have not heard, we finally got our little race in here in Daytona. It was to say the least, a bit unusual. It took about 36 hours to get it in and was over around 1:30 this morning.

Have a great week and hope everyone will come see us in July for the Pespi 400.

Now if we can feet a little sun it will be time to take a few photos of my nearly new 2010 SLK 300 and do a little top down riding. High today should be 76 degrees,

Happy Motoring

I was awake at 1:00am watching the finish. Can't say it was that great. Hate to see so many good cars either out or damaged so early in the race. More like wreck 'n effect. I read in the past week 60 cars were wrecked. Couldn't tolerate all those delays in person. Give me a comfortable sofa and TV. Poor Juan Pablo Montoya, has the worst luck in the world.

If NASCAR follows the tradition of bootleggers racing through the back woods why can't they race in the rain?

Really, Cowboy up or go sit in the truck.

It was good to see no one got hurt in the crash with the blower truck, (or the race in general).
