NASCAR recap

A little recap of my NASCAR weekend, "in pictures..."

This is one of the first things we saw on the way in to the track on Saturday...

Notice his hind leg and what exactly he's doing to Kyle? HA - I love it. The real beagle was there too, but I didn't snap a pic. However, a little later we met this most adorable big guy...

Duke_NHMS_908

This is Duke, a 160 pound, 3 year old Great Dane who was out for a leisurely stroll with his owner when they encounter NASCAR-arazzi! Duke was a huge hit and I swear he had his picture taken more than Jeff Gordon that day! Awww... I just adore big dogs!

Okay, so yeah... we did finally get in to the track and see some actual race cars too!

Aric Almirola & Tony Stewart during Happy Hour...

The very overcast sky on Saturday...

And the melee that went down after the Craftsmen Truck race (click here to see a video) ... directly in front of us! This was the first time I've seen a real brawl on pit road... real punches and all!

The on Sunday, it was all about the rain... and puddles...

Fortunately, once the green flag flew, the rain stayed away! I didn't bother with too many pics, but here are a couple...

Awh... did you bring Duke home?! He's darling, but I'd settle for one of those beagles with great judgement. ;)

That beagle is too funny! LOL

And that Duke is adorable! :)

The beagle pup is hilarious, but I too am a sucker for the really big doggies!

Whoa! That is a big dog!
But so lovable, see he just wanted to give his person a hug!
I bet he could eat a Nascar for lunch too if he wanted.

Love the beagle sign too!
I need a "watch out for the Basset Slobber" sign. LOL!

Your knitting is beautiful too. I like the birthday cowl pattern.
I am so behind in knitting and think I have a serious case of the knitting blues.
I might need to get some 'therapy' for it at my LYS!
