On lap 165, NASCAR brought the race to a standstill... stopping cars on the front stretch while all of the crew members lined up along pit wall to observe the 3:00 pm National Memorial Day Moment of Silence for our fallen heroes. This was truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience to see and I'm so proud to have been there!

Hey - that one of the choppers flying over is very cool. Why have they had such bad luck this year with weather? Seems every weekend I watch one it is either called, delayed or rain is eminent!
