Some might wonder why I decided to post our pictures from the Honda Indy Grand Prix of Alabama on a Tuesday. The explanation is simple. We wanted to get home Sunday night. It takes time to load photos, especially when your wireless connection comes and goes as it did in the Media Center. As you can tell, we took lots (and lots) of pictures at Barber Motorsports Park. I hated to not post any of them, but we had a three hour drive in front of us – so there you go.

There was probably enough gushing from me yesterday about how happy I was to finally see Nashville native Josef Newgarden earn his first win in the Verizon IndyCar series.

Susan and I will travel back tonight and I’ll watch the DVR broadcast tomorrow night. buit I’m thinking it played out as well on television as it did in person.

Barber is usually the beginning of our racing season. We changed that a little this year and went to NOLA first, but we always look forward to Barber (we do hope next year’s NOLA is drier). Speaking of dry, before the deluge came, I decided to take you on a tour through the Barber Motorsports grounds, not through the pits and the paddock area, there are hundreds of driver and car photos scattered around the internet, but this is where a casual fan would go.
