This weekend involved Champ Car, Atlantic Series, CASCAR, and Drifting demos. Unfotunately I was tied behind the security fence on turn one/pit exit, so I couldn't get out much to see the booths outside of the track (ie. no photos of hot chicks ).

With the amount of drunks falling around with heat exhaustion, I considered where I was located a good thing. It was a great event, and especially even better with an all access pass.

Awsome Shots John, I was also there with an all access pass, I got to spend my time in the air conditioned media center with free food and drinks and got a bit of time to wander the fairgrounds, It sure was an awsome weekend.

I asked one of your co-workers about you and they told me you were stuck in the nomex suit all weekend! looks like you had a good time though.

Ernie, the message was passed on to me and I was waiting at the end of the event at the medical trailer to see if you would show up. I could've showed you around Champ Car's own medical trailer. It's a complete emergency room on wheels. They sure don't hold back on the pocket book for anything out there. It truely was a great weekend.

Great pic's from the Champ Car race. I take it your a Paul Tracy fan. Wish there was more Canadian and American drivers in the series. Honestly I have been slowly driftng my attention away from Champ car races. Missed he days of the Andretti's, Unsers, "Team Target", "Team Kool Green" and such. Last season we had one driver dominating the entire series. At least this year there is more contention in the standings.

Why buy?? when you can borrow and no return

Awwww. sorry I missed you John, Where were you waiting. I was down at the medical trailer at the far west end of the site and the Big EMS bus kinda in the center and didn't see you around. I was looking at around 4:30 that day, the Cascar guys were still running at the time so I figured you might be a while, I would have loved to see that trailer.

I wasn't allowed to move out of position until everyone was off track at 1800hrs. Too bad you didn't mention attending sooner so that I would've known. Hopefully you weren't stuck working the media center that much.

Unfortunately I couldn't get to far into the pits to get the photos of the other pit crews. I was manning the pit exit/turn one and they don't give you much warning over the headset to when the cars are ready to go out. All you hear is green flag and before that is even completed, cars are already in gear and speeding away. I would be out of position to man my station. They stress very strongly that if you screw safety up once, you get banned from working future events. I was already pushing it by going into the pits to get the photos that I did.
