Thoughts While It's Hot


Random observations while pacing a steamy pit road at Dover:
+ Popsicles, the kind where you either bite or scissor off the tip, make men in firesuits look like kids again.
+ Seventy-pound Goodyear Eagles make for a nice seat during long green-flag runs.
+ Some fans apparently think that fanny packs are still cool. (Were they ever?)
+ Red Bull Formula One driver David Coulthard, a winner of 13 grands prix, went unnoticed to the untrained eye. What a shame.
+ Loud. Loud. Loud.
+ Imagine what it used to be like racing for 500 miles here. They last did it in 1997.
+ After the 11th time, lost count on the question, “Do you have any Red Bull in there?”
+ The “Big One” arrived from Talladega on lap 15.
+ Still loud.
+ Chicken wings and brats don’t seem to be the healthiest of choices for chubby crewmen a few stalls down.
+ A speeding ticket sucks.
+ A second speeding ticket sucks even more.
+ Note to fan: Ask for an autograph before or after the race. Not during.
+ It’s gotta be hot as %#@^ in those cars.
+ Do we really have to go to Pocono this week?

Well, if I had been there, I would have asked DC for his autograph and a picture. Quick question, are we going to get quotes from him and how he liked his weekend at Dover? I've seen the pictures and am SO jealous still. By the way, popscicles make this woman happy too. It's a hot, sticky day in Alabama. 94 degrees outside and it's only June. I'm worried!

Mmmm... Popscicles... I think they make just about anyone happy. And as far as asking for an autograph during a race, does any one else remember the drunk guy at Watkins Glen last year who stuck his head in Matt Kenseth's car asking for an autograph during a red flag? That guy takes the cake!

I forgot about that guy but I thought it was so funny when it happened. Matt's expression had to be priceless under his helmet.

I would've signed it though, just to make the drunk guy look cool.

Bull Rider really meant fans asking for autographs of prominent team personnel and over-the-walls guys.
