Queen to Cup Race?
Or so goes the rumor around the NASCAR paddock…Queen Elizabeth arrived in Richmond yesterday to mark the 400th anniversary of Jamestown (America’s first permanent colony for the non-history buffs out there). The Red Bull Racing crew landed at the private airport just moments before the Queen herself. We thought the heavy security, cops stationed every mile down the I-64, and the road blocks downtown were for our arrival - our mistake! The Queen is jetting over to the Kentucky Derby tomorrow morning and Richard “The King” Petty is getting the honor of meeting her, so she must be a NASCAR fan, right? Maybe she’ll stop by the Jim Stewart 400 tomorrow night. We’d even let her sit on top our pit box.
