Pocono Traffic Report

1: minivan – bump and run
1: driver that got lost trying to find the airport
0: speeding tickets

A police escort last night to the Wilkes-Barre airport had fans departing the track wondering if the Cup teams 100-car deep escort only added to more chaos and traffic jams around the track. What can we say? No trip is short of an adventure when you throw Red Bull Racing into the mix. After miles of an SUV trying to stick its nose in and one feisty female driver making sure that didn’t happen, the window of the SUV rolled down – only to have Jimmie Johnson’s crew chief Chad Knaus behind the wheel! Apologies were exchanged and Chad was let in…but not before he took down several orange traffic cones. Knaus dragged the cone for miles, so it was only fitting we got a picture for the blog (see cone near right rear tire). Excuse the blurriness – taking pictures during a high speed chase through Pocono mountain roads is not an easy task!

Your driver drives like me! (The one leaving the track.) Hey, it's every man for himself when leaving the track. I've seen people get run over, hit or sideswiped by overzealous drivers trying to stick their noses places. I say stick to your guns. Or SUV.

I feel their pain. We packed up from the infield at 8:26pm we didn't get out of the infield until 9:40pm. We only live 25 minutes away from Pocono Raceway and the traffic diverted us miles away from home. It was some crazy traffic, along with some very crazy drivers.

It's every man/woman for themselves after a race. Talladega track is the WORST! Y'all be careful.
