I’ve been waiting since I left the track last year to go back and the day has finally arrived. I leave today after work to head to Atlanta. Leaving my son here at home. Everyone asks why are you going alone. I’m not going to be alone. Last year there were 111,000 plus in attendance. I do have several people I know who will be there and always make new friends. So in just under 11 hours now I will be on my way for my annual trip to Atlanta Motor Speedway. A great day to celebrate my 100th blog post. Will try and blog while I’m gone but no promises. So here are some racing pictures to celebrat the day.

Thanks for supporting my blog through my 100 often rambling, sometimes senseless, hopefully entertaining posts. Stay tuned for more fun in the next 100 posts.

Until I’m on my way to Atlanta for the Labor Day Weekend and racing at Atlanta Motor Speedway.
So for day 42 we must add a little bit of an international twist to the post. Nascar’s one and only Juan Pablo Montoya. I have to say that I am not a big fan of Juan the driver, but Juan the person is a very nice guy. Got to meet him at the golf tournament last year and he was very friendly and very gracious. Not to mention the fact that he’s supported Reed and his charity golf tournament from the beginning, even after they weren’t teammates. So Our picture today is me with Juan Pablo Montoya driver of the #42.

Until I’m in Atlanta for Race Weekend.
Okay here’s a picture from the Reed Sorenson Charity Golf Tournament at Eagle’s Landing Country Club last year. It was a beautiful day, the course was beautiful, the club was awesome. It was an all round fabulous day. Larry McReynolds , Kasey Kahne, Juan Pablo, Elliott Sadler, Kelly Bires and Rutledge Wood were some of the celebrities there. It was the perfect way to start out an awesome weekend. To top it off I got to spend some time with a friend I hadn’t seen since high school. SO in honor of day 43 here’s me with the #43 car that was driven by Reed Sorenson in the fall race last year.
