Fueling up with Ethanol (alright it’s 10%) and having a Bobby Unser moment as I head out of the Land of Enchantment for a midnight drive.
Sunrise just outside of Oklahoma City, OK…okay? Looks like we’ve brought some California & Arizona sunshine toward the Speedway, so hopefully we’ll have some action on the track! Of course, I’ll miss it because I still have a lot of driving to do today myself…right at 1450 miles logged so far, averaging over 39 MPG in the IndySoup Special. Looks like I’ll make it there by Friday-see you there!
Man, do I suck at Planking, but it was so cool to be this close to the Johnny Lightning 500 Special! (pic from yesterday, photo by Joni)
Running on empty-hope the pits are open! (somewhere in Oklahoma)
Oklahoma is merely OK…
Missouri at last!
IndySoup arrives in St. Louis-the Gateway to the Speedway!
May 16th, 2011:(speaking of 16th, I’ll be @ 16th & Georgetown in a few days!)
Fake Firestone commercial-shameless pitch for sponsorship…
Scottsdale, AZ-home to IndyCar drivers Arie, Danica and The Gas Man…

Driving puts a smile on my face!
