Food City Race Night - the aftermath

Hmmm, I thought that they'd have cards. Nope. Lots of cars, great music, sponsor giveaways, but I didn't see any trading cards.

Carwise, probably the highlight of the show was the Trevor Bayne 'We Back Pat' car honoring Pat Summit.

Oversized food was everywhere.  Vienna Sausage was sponsoring a Pit Crew challenge.  You had the opportunity to change a tire with an air wrench.  I didn't try.  But I did eat a sausage.  Yum.

Who doesn't like the General Lee?  Cooter's Place is just up the road.

Ah, baseball.  A respite in the sea of gas fumes.

Dale Jr.'s car.

Andy Armadilo, the Texas Roadhouse mascot.  If that doesn't scare you...

... maybe Twinky the Kid will.

Or a real live mermaid.

Local short tracks provided a few drivers.  This is Robbie Comer's car.  He races at 411 Motor Speedway, just down the road from my house, about five miles.  He graciously gave me two tickets for an upcoming race.  He's got a new fan.

I was invited to the show by my friend Darrell Webb.  Here's a video I shot of him performing with Cody Shuler and Pine Mountain Railroad.

All in all it was fun hour and a half. That same day my cell phone died, so had to get a new one. While I was at it, I made arrangements for my wife to get one as well. Of course, nothing is easy when people and stores are on the other side of town.
