Thanks, John! That was fun to do, although folks who know better will find several mistakes we made. We were SO wiped out by that time! Had our last day breakfast together this morning. The gals found an interesting German restaurant that had a breakfast buffet plus German food. I'm in Bowling Green, Ohio. Just dropped Emily off after a nice dinner. Her first week went great. I'm going to do some draglist updates and then hit the sack. Got to drive back to Maryland tomorrow to get home in time for our Racin' & Rockin' show with Frank Hawley and Frank Bradley! bp

Hey everyone made it home about 7pm and started to download everything - trimmed it down to 497 - too tired to figure out smugmug tonight. Should get stuff posted tomorrow night. Just want to say, was great seeing BP, Zappy, LL, RRB and meeting everyone else. Hats off to Boyd for coming in from the left coast. Good times and good racing. Keep watching over the next few days.

Gary Spear's banners and the t-shirt design were VERY well received. We got tons of signatures on Danny's banner and he and his wife and daughter were so touched by it. He proudly put on his draglist t-shirt on the spot and rolled around the pits checking out all the funny car activity. Thanks to all our draglist guys and gals who came out again. What a great family. And to you who could not make it, we will try to capture a little bit of it for you over the next few days... Check out the audio feed here for a taste of Saturday night's action... bp

Oh one more thing, I sat 16 or 17 hrs watching races, and NOT ONCE did I see a car Launch hard then fall on it's face, idle for 200ft, then take off again.
Another reason I'm NOT going to Indy.
