Alright this has been hard to post. Each time I get through it I'm then somehow logged out. First off I will say this is my first bfest since Denver when my wife and I had been married a month and I had just lost my job with Circuit City and been rehired with VZW set to start when I got home. I also took up my lawn care business. A couple of years later it would be up to 25 accounts so I was working 5day at vzw and mowing 2 days a week which meant no time for bfest. This year I switched everything around and went full time lawn care and part time vzw because I have made much more money as a business owner. That also allowed me to set my schedule this year to come to bfest.

We arrived in Indy thursday a little after 4 to find I booked at the wrong hotel. We got shifted to the right one and somehow saved money. We then went to the gokarts which was amazing. I give the guys props that are in shape. The track was so intense that on the 2nd heat race I got so out of breath and hot that I woud have to take a lap or two off to cool off. You were literally flat out from the bottom right of the screen u turn all the way around the top floor to where you make the turn to go back down. I ran a 25.2 and a 24.9 would have got me into the finals. I think most the people that beat me had autocross experience. to continue on post below so I don't lose it again

So Friday morning the bread and butter of the Bfest. They teased us with the car just on the other side of the counter. They had us pay and head right out for our tour. Tour was awesome we got taken all the way around the speedway and stopped at the bricks for a photo op. We also got full tour of media center, victory lane, and other buildings.

Once back inside we got to start taking photos of the indy. Many people were abusing the blockade put around it, climbing under the car with cameras to document exhaust and engine and tranny. It was quite amuzing. Then the fun started. Pauly asked them to pop the hood in which we were told it would be 45min as someone was out to lunch. Yet 5 min later this guy comes out of no where and pops the hood and the trunk. After 10min while I have my hand buried over the engine bay taking a video you hear the guy order us to the corner. I think someone was on a power trip personally. While I also found the photos in the photo store, which I highly advise doing if you are ever there, the guy never once told us they can be purchased. I don't even feel that he knew. I bought a couple of photos of the indy at the bricks, but the car is different than the ones in the photo I bought. In my pic the car did not have duals or tach or extra clusters on dash. Something else must have stood out on that car then the other 2 pace cars.

battery gooing dead will finish tomorrow
