Labor Day Weekend
Thanks to LJC posting a message on her blog that she and some of her co-workers from Kodak would be in LA on Saturday to give out Nascar tickets, I was lucky enough to not only make my way into Hollywood to meet her in person, but to also get my hands on two tickets for the race. Seeing as how my youngest brother is such a fan, I took him to yesterday's race out in Fontana, California. At one point, the temperature in the parking lot was 113 degrees before the race started! Since neither of us had ever been to a Nascar race before, we weren't going to let a little heat keep us away. The seats were great! Stevie Wonder was the Grand Marshal. What a treat that was to see him in person, let alone a Nascar race too! Kodak's very own #12 car driven by Ryan Newman was in first place for one lap and stayed in the top 10 for quite a few. Here's a picture just before the green flag. Thanks again, LJC!
