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.
My picture with Reed at the 2008 March race.

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 leave the sunny shores of Florida and head to my hometown Atlanta to spend the weekend immersed in Nascar. Reed Sorenson Charity Golf Tournament Friday morning, festivities at the Track Friday night, Saturday ohhhh my volunteering with Speedway Children’s Charities, Qualifying (Nationwide and Cup) Nationwide Race. Sunday, Sunday, Sunday… Track Walk, getting to visit the pits (have I told you all I HAVE A PIT PASS and I’m so excited I can’t stand it) and then the big event Sprint Cup Racing under the lights. Then Monday morning breakfast at the track on Bruton Smith. So with 18 days to go I must post a picture of Kyle Busch and tell you my personal tale of Kyle. I hated Kyle Busch. Hated, despised, deplored, booed him at the track, wished him to crash (not get hurt just wreck the car). I did not like him here or there I didn’t not like him anywhere. But knowing it was wrong to hate someone sooooo much I prayed that God would help me not hate Kyle Busch and it worked. I’d still be hard pressed to say I’m a fan but I don’t cringe everytime I see him or hear his name. I actually hope he wins a race now and then and was glad to see him win the Nationwide Championship last year. Love him or hate him you’ve got to admit the boy will flat sure drive the wheels off a car to win a race and as I am fond of saying to my son, not only would he (and he has) put his brother into the wall he’d put his own mama in to the wall to win a race. So here’s a picture of Kyle at Atlanta Motor Speedway the year of the Snow, 2008.

It’s only twenty, count them twenty days until I’m on my way to Atlanta for a weekend of Nascar. So how could we do day 20 without the two most recent drivers of the #20, Tony Stewart and Joey Logano. Haven’t had the chance to get anywhere near Tony at the track so I had to find a picture of him, but the picture of Joey Logano is from Track Walk for Speedway Children’s Charities at Atlanta Motor Speedway last year. Looking forward to seeing Joey there again in just a few weeks. So here you have it. 20/20 the past and the present drivers of the #20 Tony Stewart and Joey Logano.
