Meet the newest driver in the Nascar garage!
Don’t let my presence in the #18 fool you, I am not a fan of Kyle Busch.
It was the only car available.
Tomorrow I will be meeting Kasey Kahne.
Lord have mercy!
This is where I am.
Infineon Raceway in Sonoma, CA. The heart of the wine country.
Just off the raceway there are lush vineyards that produce world famous wines.
The track itself looks like the Sahara Desert.
And it is just about as hot with very little shade.
It can also be a wee bit hazardous to your health, and I’m not talking hearing loss (although nothing, and I mean nothing, compares to feeling your sternum vibrate when those machines rev their engines…).
I had just a mild case of dehydration and it wasn’t very pleasant. Fatigue. Headache. Nausea. Fuzzy thinking. I thought I was hydrated, but apparently I was mistaken. Two liters of water and one baseball cap later, I was fine.
Yeah, I had to wear a baseball cap. I never wear those things. I look like a dork. And I didn’t want to wear it earlier because my hair was just so and I didn’t want to show up on the SPEED channel with squished hair.
So, tomorrow I’ll wear it.
After I meet Kasey Kahne…..
