Smoke Pit

Is anyone else on here a member of Tony's fan club and going to Fan Appreciation Day at Eldora next month? I'm seriously thinking about it since he'll be racing that night, but... not sure since I would have to do it alone. Blah! It sure stinks when no one else in your immediate circle of family and friends is a TS fan! LOL

I'm a member, but live in Phoenix. A little too far for me :(

Re: Smoke Pit

Have they ever done that before, going to Eldora. I was a member for two years and never knew about a fan appreciation day.

I have no idea if they have ever done it before because I just joined at the beginning of the year. I usually don't join fan clubs but I decided to try something new this year. I got an email yesterday about it with the details and the ticket prices and what is going to happen. Tony will just be racing there that night, that's it but they have other things planned.

Re: Smoke Pit

It's a first for the club as well. I'm not a member & the only thing they've done is a picnic the Monday after the Brickyard race. I haven't been a member in 2 yrs. I live 67 miles from Eldora, but won't be going, $50 kinda too much as a non member. I was a member from 2006 until 2010.

Thats kind of weird that Tony's fan club doesn't usually do things like this. There are other fan clubs that have annual events. Even if the driver can't be there they have gatherings so the fans can meet each other and just have fun. Well, I'm going. My friend has agreed to go with me so I don't have to make the 3-hr trek home by myself at night. I have to do all I can between now and 8/28 since I'll be starting the last two years of my bachelors degree so I won't have much time for fun! ;)

Re: Smoke Pit

Just bought my ticket today! Might as well see how well they do with it! Plus getting to see the race that night will be fun!

Re: Smoke Pit

I wish I could go to all these things. I wonder if I will ever get the chance to even meet Tony.

Well, I'll tell you what. I've done everything short of stalking him this year and I STILL haven't met him. So, set your mind to it and try. If anything, I've had a blast trying!! Wouldn't have gone to SHR or Darlington if I hadn't decided this year I was going to meet the man! IT's only taken me 13 years to even get this close!

Tony does autograph sessions at Office Depots usually in the area he is racing. Don't know if he is scheduled for MIS, but I think you can find out either on the Office Depot website or I think maybe even on this website. If other avenues fail this might be a possibility. Do you still remember what you are going to say to him? :lol:

I know exactly what I'm going to say! LOL Practice makes perfect! If I have the time to say anything. Depends on what they decide to do in August. Might not have any other time but to say "hello" and "good luck", "stay safe" and "thank you"!

As for his autograph sessions, trust me, I've been watching closely and he just hasn't done any in an area I've been or can drive to this year. I've been lucky enough to see him many times though but that's not my goal!

Re: Smoke Pit

If Tony will ever be someplace that you really don't want him to be....INVITE ME. I swear that things only get cancelled when I ATTEND. The Fan Appreciation Day at Eldora this Friday was cancelled. My friend and I are still going because we bought tickets for that night, but still... of all the dadgum luck. :x
