    Sticking my head inside getting some pics.
    We had full access passes to the entire track that day.
    My nephew got them from his work.
    Fed Ex took good care of us that day.

    Nothing like enjoying a race from the pits! Never been to a Nascar race or their pits but have been to the Summit Nationals ain Norwalk Ohio. Spent time in drivers hospitality tents and got to watch them ready the cars thanks to Sandvick tools. Nothing like standing there while they tune an 10,000hp top fuel dragster. Sure is awesome, congrats!

    Just a fun day I thought some of you might enjoy seeing up close.
    I'm a dirt track fan myself. Lucas Oil Speedway in Wheatland Missouri about an hour from me.

    You know Jeff Gordon doesn't drive the #24 car anymore right? What you have is a Chase Elliott lug nut.

    The bottom guys name is Brady Bacon you got to like a driver with the last name of Bacon. Don't you?

    Just noticed in the top picture she is wearing her Brady Bacon shirt that she is holding in the bottom one.
    She grew her hair out real long to donate it (it had to be over ten inches) so the bottom picture is the oldest.

    Lol it was a gift to my wife's brother and when I got it for him Gordon drove the car. These are pictures from the past not current.
    I found and old phone of mine in a drawer and they were on it.
    I had forgotten I even had taken them.
    So just renewing some old memories for myself and thought some others might enjoy them as well.
    But thanks for the update as i don't really follow NASCAR.
