I thought I'd share some of my pictures from Five Flags Speedway during the next few days.

I don't really know what kind of caption to use on this picture - pictured left to right are some of the fine pit crew members for the Alexander team: Brad Bush, Doug Homann and Roy (krusty_rusty) Frasier

A-Rocket,

 

I just talked with Chris Davidson. He is driving the #96 PLM, not Greg.

 

By the way, the weather is totally awesome today. I know it will be cold in the grandstands tonight, but it's really nice here this afternoon. Let's hope this beautiful weather holds throughout the weekend.

Brad aint been there long and already has a busted lip. Guess the wafflers already had to slap him back to reality.

We're finishing up our last practice session now. We had to take a break for a funeral (funeral home and graveyard adjacent the racetrack). T. Wade Welch is having some bad luck today - has spun out and hit the wall a couple of times. He has some damage to the right rear, but it looks like his crew will be able to get it fixed. An anoymous team member said, "He's hit everything so far, except for the pacecar!"

 

I'll post the last practice times soon - session ends around 4P.

This is an awsome track and they sure do have the pits packed. Chris was telling me that Gregs knees were hurting too bad and his hurt hand so Chris is driving the car. I'll take some pics and post them tomorrow. And this weather beats the hell out of the PA. snow this morning, it's been two months since I had a tee-shirt on. I love it.
