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.
