Canadian Tire Series at Barrie Speedway

Once a year, the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series comes to the Barrie Speedway. My son and I went to the September 11th race this year. It was an awesome show. Four races and lots of extracurricular fun.

156

The racing starts with three track races.

The winner of the Thunder Cars race, Jim Beleskey.

160

That's me at the track. Note I'm standing only 10 feet from the track. Your not allowed against the fence, but you could be 2 feet away from the action.

162

Excellent beer and poutine.

163

There's a racecar tire changing game. Very fun. Not my first time, but I still suck.

JR Fitzpatrick's car. He was in 3 Nationwide races this year and finished in the top 10 twice.

171

Between qualifying and the race, there's an autograph session where you can walk on the track and meet all the drivers.

181

182

Boogidy, boogidy, boogidy, let's go racing boys.

183

Video of the entire field.

Last lap of the race. Don Thomson Jr passes DJ Kennington on turn 2 of the last lap. Kennington passes back coming out of turn 4. What a finish.

Kennington's victory lap.

His fourth win of the year. He finished the year with 5 wins and won the series championship.

189

Some of the cars that were on display. Kerry Micks #02 Dickies Ford Fusion.

168

DJ Kinnington's #17.

The Track Bar

Ever wonder what they mean about loosening or tightening the track bar. I really never understood until I watch this video.

Nationwide Raceday at Michigan International Speedway

Summer Vacation, Day 28, August 14th 2010.

Finally, it's raceday. The Nationwide race. The Sprint Cup race is not till Sunday (the next day). Keselowski dominated and won the Nationwide race that day. My son was quite happy. It's one of his favorite drivers.

Our RV site.

146

The carts that people bring to the NASCAR races are simply crazy. Check out these two.

107

A bicycle bar.

108

What's an outdoor sporting event with the Goodyear blimp.

144

123

Important! When camping at the racetrack, you don't have plumbing. Keep an eye out for these guys and the water truck. I catch them once or twice depending on how many days it is. So I can shower everyday.

127

After the race, there was a free outdoor convert. They had beer, but not food. Kids were hungry.

148

149

Nighttime. Time for a campfire.

159

166

167

My neighbor accidentally set his lantern on fire. Security put the fire out within 30 seconds. Really, 30 seconds. They go around in carts all night. He stopped the cart, grabbed the fire extinguisher and it was over.

160

The orange dots are flying lanterns.  There was sometimes a couple dozen of them in the sky at once.

165

If you don't know what a flying lantern is, then watch this vid. This was the 2nd one I lit. Was a little nervous and almost blew it.

Some pics of cars on the racetrack.

Even from the ground (2nd row), we could see the race.

Awesome National Guard tailgating setup at the entrance to turn 1.

086

Enjoying a beer.

091

Pocono Truck Racing

Summer Vacation, Day 23, July 31st 2010.

The Saturday of the Pocono weekend was the 1st Camping World Truck race held there. Big day. But let's start with breakfast. Like my setup? That's my propane grill on top of my mounted dual purpose firepit-charcoal grill. I have it all.

095

I refer to my kids as ABC (their 1st initials), so when we say ABC hashbrowns, we bought in.

094

Gotta love this bar slash golf cart. NASCAR fans have the greatest golf carts.

156

View from the rooftops. Some of these rooftop contraptions are amazing.

157

158

163

166

Let's go truck race.

167

My tat. LOL! Temp. Lame. FAIL!

189

Awesome M&M golf carts.

196

The neighbors on the corner had the Nationwide race on TV for all to watch. My kids took advantage. These neighbors always occupy the same spot opposite fenceline site #1.

253

They also host beer pong and flip cup games. I rock at flip cup. After the guys lost about six games in-a-row, I showed them a couple tricks, joined in and we kicked the girls asses. I hit my 1st and only flip. I'm king of flip cup. I would've played longer, but I had the three kids.

258

Pics of all the Spring Cup favs during practice earlier in the day.

Darlington Raceway

Guess where I went on July 27th? I stopped by the Darlington raceway. Didn't intend to. The wind brought me there. I was driving thru South Carolina and noticed Darlington was fast approaching. I immediately thought Darlington Raceway. Then a sign from god. Or was that a road sign. Darlington Raceway turn off ahead. I turned off.

066

I think it was 13 miles from the I95. WOOT!

032

Historical plaque located outside the museum.

033

The building is draped in classic images of the greats. Dale and Bobby.

028

Cale was one of the favs growing up. He was winning when I was a kid just learning about racing.

027

Love Darrell. But only after he cried when his brother won the Daytona 500 the day Sr died.

026

The real oldies.

025

Johnny Mantz was the 1st to win the Southern 500.

024

The museum has a bunch of old NASCAR cars. Bill Elliott, an all-time fan fav.

Interstate Batteries Truck
I was suprised last week to find an Interstate Batteries truck painted the colors of Kyle Busch and Bobby Labonte's #18 NASCAR. Racing is not a popular sport in Brampton, Ontario, Canada. I doubt anybody in the parking lot understood the significance of the paint job.

No EASports NASCAR 10

Last month, I found out that EA Sports is not working on a NASCAR 10 and is no longer interested in the NASCAR license. There is  no NASCAR specific game currently in planning. NASCAR will now be part of the Grand Turismo game, but won't have a game on it's own. I think this is a big mistake by NASCAR. Video games are a great way of creating young fans. Without a game, with current cars, drivers, etc., young fans will flock to other sports.
