    Kidding (well, not about football), but years ago I had to help out at our Daytona store for Dale Jr's booksigning during Speedweeks out there....it was the most incredible event I had ever been to (including some big name booksignings at my own store at that time). Fans--of ALL ages and backgrounds--lined up 12 hours before...we had security all over the place...and I was part of the crew "guarding" the back door where he was supposed to enter the building...and he pulled up in his gold Suburban...and the crowd RUSHED the barricades to get to him....luckily I wasn't trampled...but I mean after people got their book signed girls were crying...geez...it was a little bizarre. I know NASCAR is big, but he isn't Brad Pitt or anything. :D

    He was lucky. I hate races decided by gas mileage rather than performance.

    As Richard Petty once said, "I'd rather be 'lucky' than 'good' any Sunday."

    Jr. did have at least a 5th or 6th place car all afternoon, but it was good to see him have some "luck" too. :D

    We sold our motor home going on three years ago. For 16 good years we drove to and camped at three NASCAR Cup races a year. Now we do our 'attending' in front of our 46" HDTV. :) Between the new 'rules' (since '02) and now the 'spec' cars we don't think it is worthwhile to go to the expense and traffic to attend anymore because NASCAR had taken the racing out of racing.... :(
