Good week on the road, even got to see Jackson and fire up a 1956 Jaguar XK 140 at a friend's house Tuesday night. I don't think my SCCA license is renewable so it's not going to be my ride.
Found this in the files,again, the best dog ever.
I was online with an old racing buddy Thursday night and found this. It's from the 1979 Old Dominion 500 in Martinsville. I was taking pictures for the NCMS, Darrell Waltrip blew his engine and came into the pits and exchanged his engine in 11 minutes. It was the fastest engine change during a NASCAR race, and may have been the last one as NASCAR stopped the practice shortly after. I was in the pits, Darrell never got out of the car. I handed him some tools to disassemble the gear shifter and then got the heck out of the way. See if you can find Waldo (in this case Waldo would be me). Buddy Baker won the race under the red flag, sitting on the track with a flat front tire. It was his day. Find me yet?
We heard an amazing speaker last night, http://bush.tamu.edu/faculty/jolson/ . Hire him if you want to hear some great stories about espionage, real-life not James Bond, although you may confuse fiction from fact if you listen carefully, and I'll bet you will.
Off to the factory next week for planning meetings, and then a little side trip to Austin Friday, I heard they're trying to have a little car race there next weekend. http://circuitoftheamericas.com/
Look for me, I'll be wearing a cap.
Fishing tomorrow, we're going for the bigguns..............
