daytona 500: A Feel Good Story From Last Nights Coca Cola Speed Experience - 02/17/07 01:05 AM
It's official Coca Cola Speed Experience was a hit!
And I am beat up and wore out. I really don't know how people put shows like this thing on all the time.
I would like to thank Mickey Jones, Pat Travers, Kyle Petty, Jamie McMurry, Fiddling Jessy, The Lauren Ellis Band, John Boy and Billy, The Georgia Satellites and Rick Derringer and everyone else who came out, and Coca Cola for making all this possible!

I have to tell you a story about Mickey Jones, and a father who was with his son:
I walked into the VIP tent at some point in … (7 comments)

daytona 500: You Can Feel The Excitement In The Air - 02/11/07 12:29 PM
As you drive around Daytona. You don't have to be that close to the Speedway to know its Speedweek. We were doing our errands yesterday, a good 10 miles as the crow flies from the Speedway and saw two planes pulling banners heading west following International Speedway Blvd. Later in the afternoon we were about 5 miles away and I look in the sky and saw the 2 planes circling the Speedway, one pulling a HUGE banner advertising the new DALE movie and I couldn't read the other one. Heck I never realized how close this intersection I was at was … (3 comments)

daytona 500: Possible Shakeup @ DEI? Latest from Daytona International Speedway - 02/09/07 09:38 AM
Biggest news out of the Speedway today was about what Dale Jr. had to say last night at a news conference about DEI and how he would like Majority Ownership. I guess I've been under a rock the last 6 years, I thought Dale JR and Teresa were pretty tight since Dale SR died, that's what I get for thinking.
Apparently Teresa had some not so nice things to say about Dale JR back in December and Dale Junior said the comments "stung" Now, I do know that while Dale Jr. was growing up the relationship between him and his famous father … (2 comments)

I will be taking the day off from Century 21 Sundance and spending it at the Speed Experience taking photos of the VIP winners with Kyle Petty, Mickey Jones and the 2001 … (3 comments)

daytona 500: The Budweiser Clydesdales Are In Daytona For The Daytona 500! - 02/07/07 12:57 AM
I love all animals, as far as the domesticated animal goes the horse is the most majestic. There are several different breeds and everyone has their favorite, in fact for Christmas Steve got me tickets to see the The Lipizzaner Stallions. Honestly it was an OK show. Because the Ocean Center was small the horses were unable to do a lot of the spectacular things they are trained to do, and I didn't like the double bit system in their mouths that caused them to drool during the entire performance, to me it took away from their beauty. Getting off subject here, … (6 comments)

daytona 500: BOOGITY! BOOGITY! BOOGITY! LET’S GO RACING!!!! - 01/10/07 05:41 AM
Daytona Beach is all abuzz with talk of the "Thunder" being back in town the last couple days. When you hear "Thunder" mentioned this time of year they aren't speaking of the weather or our 2 yr old Arena Football Team, The Daytona Beach Thunder, they are speaking of NASCAR Thunder! I've been hearing that Thunder for the past 2 days here at the office as the cars come up on Turn 2 and head to Turns 3 & 4, our office is about a mile from the Daytona International Speedway, as the Great Blue Heron flies off the backstretch and heads south. usually I … (2 comments)
