From the hip

Radio Shack 500 Weekend Photo Recap

The spring NASCAR weekend was an absolute blast. Tony Stewart won the IROC race, Kurt Busch (unfortunately) won the Busch race, and Kasey Kahne won the Cup race. Dad and I got lots of quality male bonding time. How can you not love a sport where it’s so loud grunting becomes your primary form of communication? It was the perfect “guys’ weekend” recipe, in my book.

Anyway, I only took about 6 million pictures — most of them pointing the camera through our binoculars. (I’m still shocked this works so well.)

Below are links to the picture galleries. Many of the photos have hi-res versions available if you’re craving new wallpaper for your desktop. And if you’re not digging my color commentary on the slides, I highly recommend the “view as a slideshow” feature on Flickr.
