2008 Rolex Series Finale
Miller Motorsports Park, Utah
September 19-20 2008
This is it. Last race of the year. It was bittersweet as I packed my bags one last time. My Rolex Corporate ID had been in three countries and at a long list of tracks since January and the year had gone very well. It will feel weird not seeing these teams next year as I really get along well with a lot of them. Most of the teams are really cool and I will miss it.
That being said, Miller is an INCREDIBLE facility. The 2009 NASA National Championships are there and who knows, maybe I'll make it to that. Incredibly long track with a serious front straight, more turns than a Caldwell Run (well, it seems that way) and a HUGE paddock with multiple garages and plenty of room. Awesome, AWESOME track.
I found a nice place to shoot my little point-n-shoot at the cars as they negotiated a little chicane on the backside and got some really good tail shots (I think...) and then of course my typical ADD-randomness-with-the-camera that always seems to happen when I'm at a track.
Those are HUGE flags so that is quite a bit of wind

I wonder what race he got that watch from...
T1, Lap 1. You can't win the race there, but you CAN lose it.
Ok wait, this track has HOW many turns?
Wakey wakey, eggs and bacey!!
OMG FTW! (yes, inside joke)
