Matter of perception, I am just irritated that I did not stick with my original pick where the 29 came in for third. That would have been the ultimate night. I changed my picks before posting. Oh well two out of three is not bad.

That is 255 points in two weeks. Look out H, I am coming for ya :twisted:

What I want to do is rent a big motorhome and stay in the infield, so I would have the whole week experience...be there for the duels, practice, qualifying, and anything else that might go on. That would be the best....Now convincing the other half,a whole week would be fun..........not as easy, but not impossible :lol: :lol:
Our nephew is a junior at Embry Riddle and I am sure, he and I could have a great time. He loves racing and spent last summer in the Indy wind tunnels.......My racin buddy!
:idea: :idea: Maybe I should do both!! :lol:

Not sure if it's the same at every track, but when you want to do all that at the 500, they call it Speed Weeks in Daytona. You can get a pretty good package deal when you're doing everything there. Much, much better driver meet & greets when you do it that way too.

I stopped using the magic mixing bowl...I figure the old tricks we were using does not work on the Gen 6 car. So now I go and stand on the dock and throw a bunch stones into the air and then stare into water and see what appears. Only been doing it for two weeks. I like the results....two first places and a second.

We stopped in at Daytona's track Saturday & stopped to make a sign for Race Day, but I don't know if they got our signs in or not. I have mine with #14 in a circle in to top middle & said SHR Garage Gang & put my name SHR's screen name & my 2 boys SHR screen name on it. Had #14, #39, & #10 listed on it too. I had on a white T-shirt with a red, white, & blue #14 on the front. I'm short & fat. My boys, one had a #14 sign he made & the other had a #24 sign made. He had to be different. He likes both, but siblings like to be different sometimes. I'd have to look back to my pictures to see what color shirts they had on. I think one had a bright orange shirt & the other a blue shirt on or a yellow shirt on.
07-11-13: correction, their shirts are white & in tan shorts.

Thanks Annalee.

I thought the boys had on colored T-shirts, I just pulled my camera out & they're in white T-shirts, tan shorts. One son has on a red #14 sun visor, the other a black #24 sun visor. I think I still had on my red #14 sun visor.
