For those of you who are looking for a road trip blog, or something racing related, you're going to be disappointed because this isn't either. Well, maybe it is in a way because it is a true story, and had life taken a few different turns along the way, maybe I wouldn't even be posting this here. Go grab your favorite beverage and start reading. I promise, this will be as interesting as any Road Trippin' blog I've ever done. Ready?
To start this story, I need to back up the clock to about 1974,
Blog time again. This time it's from round 2 at Dodge City Raceway Park in Dodge City, Kansas.
The trip began back on June 10th at 5:00pm. I knew it was going to take roughly 20 hours to complete, and since you can't check into hotel rooms until 1:00pm in most cases, I tried to time it so that the waiting period was as close to zero as possible. Added into the mix was a time zone change where I gained an hour in Indiana. I also figured that a quick 2 hour catnap in a rest area would help make
First things first...
The weather down here flat out sucks so far. In the daytime, I'm working inside on video stuff, so I don't notice it too much. But when I get to the track... JESUS CHRIST it's cold.

The only salvation was that there was no wind. I saw this morning on the local news that the Gecco Lizards
Something a little different here. On most of my road trips, someone usually comes with me. That's kind of cool (if they stay awake) so that I have someone to talk to. I generally don't have a problem staying awake. I get so excited about going someplace new or different, that it'd be impossible to sleep anyway. But having someone to talk to and swapping racing stories is always cool too. It helps make the travel time go by faster.
Every once in a while I travel solo. Just after Super DIRT We
I am finding it impossible to believe that the '09 version of Speed Weeks is here already. In fact, I am finding it extremely difficult to believe that the 2008 racing season is over. Part of this is because I am still editing video from 2008, and much of it is stuff I didn't shoot which makes it new to me. I am trying to get it all done before I leave so that I'll have fresh 2009 video to work with when I get back home again.
My brother Dan called me last night on the phone which is what pro
Just trying to iron a few wrinkles out of the section. Anyone want to write a blog? I'm sure we could accomodate a few more. Also... it would be appreciated to know what everyone thinks about this section... not only by staff members, but by the bloggers themselves. Pro or con, the comments are needed to justify the value of this section.
