Back Home Again…In Tennessee

A very quick note, as I just got back into Nashville. I’m tired, but still on a high after the weekend I had. Between all of the personal highlights I experienced this weekend, I’d have to narrow it down between having a beer with Roy Hobbson or chatting with Donald Davidson. Sorry Roy, but Donald wins out. My greatest accomplishment throughout the weekend was not getting arrested during the time I spent with Mr. Hobbson. I was afraid I would be guilty through association, but I managed to avoid that.

Don’t forget that final answers to the Oilpressure Indy 500 trivia contest are due at noon (central time) today. it’s your last chance to try and win an polo shirt.

I had promised pictures and more thoughts on the qualifying weekend first thing in the morning. Being so tired tonight, I am changing things up slightly for the next couple of days. This afternoon, I’ll announce the winner to the trivia contest, along with answers. Tomorrow (Tuesday) morning, I’ll have a more coherent article along with some pictures from the weekend.

That’s all for now, I’m going to bed.

    Thanks very much for the great stories and in general reportage, most especially for always maintaining a keen eye peeled for the human interest side of the many storied IMS, during the ofttimes inordinant pressure and stress of qualifying.

  2. Thanks for being eyes and ears for those of us who can’t be there; it’s appreciated.

  3. For those of us who weren’t there, and could get it, Versus did a great job this weekend. Sure, there was filler and time-killers, but all in all, a bunch of action and many, many hours of televised programming. Good interviews with the Rahals and R. Bernard. And the drama at the end with Fisher, Kanaan and Tracy was great.

    Made me realize that one of the smartest things Indycar does is to not guarantee any spots in the field like Nascar does. Making some sponsor happy is important, but the drama of having to make that race on your own merits, no matter who you are, is awesome and exciting.
