Lane, thanks for posting the photos. I'm sorry we weren't able to meet up over the weekend. I had my middle brother and my kids with me
and we did not spend too much time in any one place. Never made it up to the corkscrew or the outside part of the track. I'm glad to see
you had an opportunity to meet Chad though. They sure had the Trans-Am cars packed in like jelly beans, which I don't think anybody liked.
I suppose that's the new reality of how things are going to be since they expanded the amount of race groups for the weekend. I saw that
they added speed readouts on top of the bridge on the main straight, which was pretty neat. Saw quite a few cars in the 120+ mph range.

No worries Jon...wanted to hear more about your car....I saw a couple of people that looked like you however Wink
The speedo was neat and the large TV screen on top of the tower worked this year as well with live feed.
The first picture I took is from our camp at Rainey curve fwiw...

I saw the Yunick car go in..wondered what was wrong...looks like they were lucky from your photo..one of the Penske cars also went in with a lot of smoke...not sure if they ran later or not..

Thanks, Lane. The view from your camp site is a good one. By the way, pictures from the Historics have been posted now on the Historic Trans-Am website. Yes, I'm in a few of those pictures too.

Thanks for the kind words about the family, Dale.   I really appreciate it.

We had a great time with you, Craig and Scott, and we hope to meet up at future events here or there.
