Default Travis Pastrana

Went to my first race ever today at Watkins Glen. I met my favorite racer Travis Pastrana. He was waiting to go on stage for an interview and I was the only one to notice him standing there. I shook his hand, got his autograph and he even took a photo with me. He is one stand up guy. Not often enough do you see celebrities go the extra step to make someone's day. I will post a pic tomorrow night or Monday.

Here is the autograph I got from Travis Pastrana. I also met my second favorite driver Joey Logano. Here is his auto as well. What a great time going to my first race. I met Ms. Sprint Cup as well.

I met a few drivers a few years back at Pocono id say Juan Pablo was the most sociable real cool guy, I believe it was carl Edwards was real cool as well he was just hanging out with his daughter. I met Joey Logano and Jimmie Johnson at the casino id have to say the person who seemed to brush people off the worse at the track was- Dale Jr/Jimmie Johnson they wouldn't let fans get anywhere near them Diva-ish and of all people Joe Gibbs wasn't to pleasant.

Thats cool. I found of all sporting events I've been to, that the race is the most friendly from the drivers to staff and even the fans. Ill have to tell my brother in law about Gibbs. Hes huge on him and the Redskins. Ive seen the above video before. Its so great when this happens. Its a heartwarming video.

You have to visit Daytona for speed weeks. The town turns into race city. Driver appearances, races and a lot of people in town.

I used to like Nascar, then I realized that it is the most boring thing to watch...then I found F1...go watch real men race.
