Marc's Trip to Brians!!

As many of you know...I took a trip to Brian's house (099F350) to work on his truck...and obviously since he lives near daytona...take a vacation!! Below are some pics of the trip!!

sunset over the front stretch


Daytona Victory lane from the skyboxes (our track tour was up into the skyboxes instead of onto the track due to the fact that the track was leased out to a carshow that weekend)




Me in front of Daytona USA


Me in front of the Daytona Speedway sign and the speedway



Car of tomarrow exhibit



The daytona 500 winning car (notice the bump drafting effects on the rear of it)





What the banking really is!!! (notice the cable between the bulldozers in the second pic!!)



Dale Earnheart memorial statue


Random pics of the trip........

if you see a light at the end of the tunnel, it's probably just a photon torpedo
