Good morning from Barber Motorsports Park and the Honda Indy Grand Prix of Alabama. We have been here for a while, but there was a generator problem in the Media Center this morning, meaning there was no power or internet. That problem was fixed around 9:30, so I was able to come in and type

Well, there’s good news and bad news. The good news is that it’s been a great day here at the track. The bad news is that we were able to record an episode of One Take Only beside the track this afternoon. I will work on it tonight and post it either late tonight or first thing in the morning, assuming I can get the software on my laptop to cooperate. If not, it’ll have to wait until we get back home.. You’ve been warned.

By the time you read this, one of us will be well on our way to Barber Motorsports Park for the Honda Indy Grand Prix of Alabama. I say one of us, but I guess I should say I’ll be on my way. Susan has some work to do and will be driving down to Birmingham later today. In order to not have two cars to deal with for the weekend, I am riding down early this morning with my One Take Only cohort, John McLallen; who is driving down for the day to watch practice with his son Jack.

For those of you that have Facebook, you know there is a relatively new feature called Memories that shows you where you were or what you posted on a certain date, so many years ago. Last week a photo popped up on mine that was from exactly two years ago at NOLA Motorsports Park, when Susan and I were there for the Inaugural Grand Prix of Louisiana.
