    Here's my Daytona pics

    Hey guys
    Now that I'm back, I've been going through about 800 pics from the Daytona speedweeks. I thought I'd put a few out here for you guys to enjoy.
    I will probably put a few out here each time I go so you guys can get a good behind the scenes at the track.

    Hope you like them.

    camera pods

    To answer the question about camera pods on the roofs. NASCAR/TV does not put one in every car. Everycar does get the housing to put one in so there will not be an aero advantage to the cars with them. Years ago on the superspeedways, they found that by having a camera pod, it would deflect some of the air over the rear spoiler which would reduce drag and the car would go faster. That's why you would always see Dale Sr. with cameras at Daytona and Talladega. He was one smart cookie!

    Oh, by the way....if anyone else wants to have this much fun, be prepared to not be home for 22-30 weeks of the year between all the races, meetings and shows.

    Thanks for hangin with the new site. So far it seems to be working.

    I have myself seem Lincoln sponsored teams with nicely painted red machines that I am unable to find in a Lincoln website.COUGH dynasty COUGH.

    O Andy that isnt bad what is bad is if you tell some people you are going to spend that time under a car greasy, Dirty and having a hard time hearing your own self speak. That the only thing you see is Hotel room, Airport , Shop. When you can describe in great detail all the major airports in the United States and what ones have the best fast food. Or the kicker when you tell people what you do and they respond can you get me a Dale Jr autograph. Cool pictures but im sure the storys you have are even more intresting.

    A Very BIG Thank You Andy . . for posting the pics. they do give us a better idea of Nascar and what happens in the pits.
    Andy you are a great guy to think of us and share the photos with us.

    I am so proud to have some of the Best welders out their (Miller), the ones the Pro's use.... Those Miller welders make those cars look good sitting their.

    I have quite a few shots at the race teams building the cars too. I'll be trying to do some build awareness posts of actual parts and chassis. Thought it would give a better view of what goes into these things so look for this soon.

    Great pics, whata job..........Where is the winner?? or did I miss it? Go 12...

    I'm pretty sure they all have the place for the camera but dont think they all carry one. I think they made all the cars a few years ago with the camera mount so all aero-dynamics would be the same. Andy, correct me if I'm wrong. Only been to Daytona for a track tour and was cool. Been to several cup races but all at Dover, De. I live an hour from there.


    Thanks again for great pics

    Thanks for sharing the pictures Andy. Yup thats motorsports allright. We are very dedicated Nascar fans & especially like my Fords. I am almost positive we will never get there in real life ourselves, so Thanks again for making it a little more realistic here.Sure you don't have room in an extra bag we could hide in & get there We could weld our way to afford a trackburger.
