Plane problems for Tony

Tue Aug 16, 2011 8:13 am

Got to see Tony really close up but no autographs this weekend at Watkins. He was speaking at the Sprint tent with the Sprint girl. He walked right next to me to get up on the stage. He was looking good.

He said he wrecked 3 planes the day before. He first had engine problems and had to stay over on Thursday in Tennesee then when they landed (must be close to Watkins) they lost the brakes on his plane and crashed into Ryan's plane and another driver's plane. So he started the weekend with 3 planes he had to fix.

Was not the right eventful weekend Tony needed. Hope his luck changes at MI.

Great race. We watched Denny take that hard hit right in front of us and saw Reagan and Ruitemann crash too. They were lucky someone didn't get more seriously hurt.

Hey there, I wish I had known. We were in turn 1 on the new bleachers, row 32.....
How did you get his autograph. I was close enough but he didn't sign a thing neither coming or going off the stage. Where were you when you saw him?

Sorry I missed you.

Maybe Ryan's plane was blocking.
