Monday Mischief: NASCAR Style

We're not quite sure where the weekend went, but the calendar says it's Monday.  It was an exhausting (but, yes, fun) weekend for the humans.  The lapdogs think there must have been some mischief going on yesterday, since they weren't home to facilitate the daily critter watching.  Instead, they were doing this...

We passed out a whole bucket full of @caseyjonesbones #dogtreats samples yesterday at #NHMS during our #uslegends Invitational Race before the big #NASCAR race! #8 #HooliganMotorsports #CaseyJonesBones #BestSponsorEver #dogstagram

Yup, they were at that racing thing again.  The Lapdogs' Daddy was invited to take part in the US Legends Invitational Race before the big NASCAR race yesterday in New Hampshire.  And as much as the Lapdogs think we gave away all of their Casey Jones Bones, that is not quite true.  Yes, we gave away a whole bucket full of samples, but those are supposed to be given out to race fans, thanks to our fabulous sponsor (and not to worry Teutul, we have plenty of CJB at home for you and your siblings)! 

After our race was over, we got to have some fun.  Besides meeting and greeting hundreds of new race fans (Matt literally had a line in our pit area for quite awhile after the race), we got to take in all the NASCAR fun as well.  We caught the very end of the Recycled Percussion pre-race concert...

Then took a leisurely stroll down pit road...

Happy Harvick! @kevinharvick @nhmotorspeedway @stewarthaasracing #NASCAR #Harvick #newhampshire #smile #racing
 
Just after the big race started, I had the pleasure of bumping into the honorary pace car driver... Julian Edelman! 

Went to the NASCAR race and met @edelman11 Guess it was worth getting there before 6am....well, that and the #uslegends race at 9am (too bad he didn't come over then... could have let him try a Legend car)  ;) I'll get the real pic off the camera this wee

For those of you who are not football fans, that's New England Patriots Wide Receiver, Julian Edelman!  Yup, I went to a NASCAR race and managed to meet one of my favorite NFL'ers!  And, yes, that's my quick Instagram pic of a pic from last night because I still have to sit down and download my real-camera pics.  (not-so-great-hair side note: I had finally just given in to the hot sun and put a hat on, thinking all of the pictures were done for the day... darn it)

Less than 2 minutes after my Edelman encounter, this happened right in front of where we were standing...

Then we got a very up-close look when they brought Jimmy's car off the track and switched it from the tow-truck to a flat-bed.

Awww, shucks. #JimmieJohnson @jimmiejohnson #NASCAR #NHMS @nhmotorspeedway #48
