Watkins Glen

Yesterday I attended the Nextel Cup race at Watkins Glen International. It was the best sporting event I have ever attended.

I took a number of pictures of the action, and a few of them turned out pretty well...

#01 - Mark Martin

#7 - Robby Gordon

#12 - Ryan Newman

#21 - Boris Said

#24 - Jeff Gordon (my favorite driver)

#99 - Carl Edwards

The Goodyear Blimp (I didn't think to take a picture when it was close!)

My view from the Green Grandstand:

After the race, I made it home in 22 minutes. To say I was lucky would be an understatement; some folks waited two hours in the parking lot!

In all, it was an excellent day. (despite Gordon spinning out of the lead with three laps to go!)
