My Time with Joe Gibbs Racing
 
As many of you know, I am very active with all kinds of motorsports.

However, this past weekend was the first time I was invited to "The NASCAR Big Show".

A good friend of mine is associated with Joe Gibbs Racing (JGR).

We were able to tour the pits, spend time with the team and the crew, go to church with the drivers and just generally get into trouble. [woot]

Here are a few photos from the race this past weekend.

Enjoy!

Well, we had a bit of an inside track (pardon the pun).

I didn't know it at the time, but I went to high school with Joe's son JD. My friend (who got us the passes) knew him and is also friends with JG personal assistant.

We spent about 10-15 minutes with JD and Denny Hamlin - I'll get those up as soon as Ken sends them to me.

If you ever get the chance to get passes again, I would definitely do it.

The goings on behind the scenes are a lot more entertaining than the races (my opinion).
