    My Mom just called me a little bit ago and asked if we wanted to that race. Of course I said yes!!! Dale Jr is gonna be the Grand Marshall,waving the green & checkered flag for the race. Dale Jr,Martin Truex Jr,Kenny Wallace and Clint Bowyer and a fifth driver are going to be there. We think that Tony Stewart will be the fifth driver since Jr will be coming in on Stewart's plane...Info from a good source!
    I put a link to the site and it tells about the race. I think its gonna be a blast!!! Hot but a blast!!! :big_smile::lol:

    Had a great time there. There was over 5000 people at that little place. I did get some great pics but no autographs. I'll get some of the pics up later and have some great pics being sent to me from people that met them all. Sterling Marlin was the 5th driver there...UGH!!! LOL!
    The pics of JR on the flag stand turned out great. I have one awesome pic of JR waving the checker,its my desktop background. I'll post them later.Not all,I took over a hundred pics though. I'll post a few of the better ones!!!
    Stay tuned for pics!!!!!!!! :smile2::smile2::lol:
