One of my favorite events since moving to Charlotte is Speed Week. For my group of friends and me, it means a week of activities – culminating with Sunday night’s big race, the Coca Cola 600. I’m working on my Race Week blog post. It will include some fun surprises including the definition of “yupneck,” a portmanteau we created. That post won’t be ready until midweek due to travel back to Boston and work. For now I give you a preview. This is video of our neighbors at Charlotte Motor Speedway setting up camp. It’s 8 minutes of video condensed into one minute. Enjoy!

I didn’t get my book published (yet!) but I did get my first article published. I have to tell you, I’m pretty jazzed! It’s about how I fell in love with NASCAR when I moved to Charlotte. It was such a neat writing experience. I wish I could have used more exclamation points to express my genuine enthusiasm!!!
Anyway, here’s the link to the online version of the article and here’s the link to the online version of the actual magazine (go to page 44). You can pick the format. And of course you can just pick up a hard copy, that would be fun too!!!
Warning… in creating this video… I changed out of my work clothes (suit!) but forgot to remove the work make-up (a heavy coating!). I also realized, after the fact, I placed myself in front of a blank wall. Rookie mistake that I know has my photographer friends cringing!
