Well its about that time! Last week at this time we were keeping a close eye on Irma as it looked like it may come up the east coast. Fortunately for us it did not but let us remember all our friends down in Florida that were affected by this storm. A lot of Division 2 racers are from the areas affected most by the storm including alot of Division staff members as well. We will continue to keep those folks in our thoughts this weekend.
Now for some racing, I hope everyone has had time to get over their Indy hangovers so we can have some great action this weekend! Looks to be a beautiful late summer weekend with low 80's for highs but a bit humid. Temps should be in the mid 60's in the mornings to make for some quick times during the qualifying runs, hope everyone remembers to take it off kill if you were at Indy.
In true fashion I will not be there till late tomorrow since I'm going to wait for my little girl to get out of school before I leave. I feel guilty for letting her skip a whole day for racing so its best to not make it 2. Ok my wife said she could only miss 1 day!!!
Should be a great weekend and looking forward to seeing some great racing. If you're in my neighborhood stop by and say hi, I'm normally parked in the low rent district on the opposite side of the Pros.

Well after about a 5 hour delay, we are back on the road again! A little problem with the trailer, but hopefully we are good now! I hate driving in the mountains in the rain and dark, but maybe all those creatures of the night will stay out of our way! Thanks, Gary Jennings for your help today! And Joe Tysinger and Michael Volkman for your info!

Thanks James. I am one of the fla people waiting for power to be restored. We appreciate the thoughts. It's healthy for your kids to do exciting things with their parents A couple days off school is not a bad thing when they are with their family. The kids here in Fla missed an entire week from the storm. Kick some butt this weekend.

Well we still are not to the racetrack. Got as far as Asheville and had a blowout on the trailer. Then discovered that the leaf spring is broken. So now trying to get that fixed. This has turned into the trip from hell!

More later!

Well we finally arrived at the track about 1:00 this afternoon safe and sound!
We got parked, got our credentials and then took a nap because we had big plans for this evening. Alice and Joe Tysinger's daughter Wendy and her husband Buddy threw a surprise 50th Anniversary party for them tonight!! Their actual anniversary is not until December so it was a real surprise! Dinner and dancing at the Speedway Club here at the track. I think there was about 130 people in attendance from racing friends, hometown of Thomasville, Wilmington and other various places. I was crying along with them as they realized how many people love them and wanted to celebrate that marvelous milestone! Here are a few pictures from the festivities. As you can see, this group cleans up pretty well!!


Alan Rhinehart with the honorees and Wendy


The Band Oz provided the music for the evening and they were really great playing all the music from our youth!


So who knew that Joe was a drummer from way back??

Joel and Karen Warren


Larry, Joe, Wendy and Dede Layer
It was so good to see Dede!!
