Jp gets his hot-diggity-gigitty-boogity on..Y'all.
I had a girlfriend in College named Diane Gudmunsted. A free spirited lass from Sveltstad Norway.
She had an AMC Pacer and the back deck (boot) was kitted out with throw rugs and pillows and exotics oils.
A veritable tantric knocking shop, as long as you were prostrate...I STILL have that welt on the top of my head from the big back window.
She taught me everything I know.
That Pacer went up in flames at the cast party for LAVC Theatre Arts production of Cabaret after my assistant, Lacy Overall, threw her highball into the front seat along with a lit Sherman cigarette. The words she murmured were something to the effect of... 'He gave her class / she gave him sex.'
A few years later I went to Riverside Raceway to see my first, and to this date only, NASCAR race.. The Budweiser 400
I got a call from Diane's father asking me if I was driving her to the race...
I said "What?..Diane? going to the race?..First I had heard of it."
Oh Yes..She's the trophy girl, has been for 3 years.
And so it was, on the occasion of RCR's first ever victory Diane stood proud in her flimsy blue wraparound skirt and flowing Norse mane.
Now the good news...(and keep it under your hat)
Jp has been surreptitiously recruited by the GeneralRegionalOperationsTeam or GROT to keep an eye on the proceedings,the fortunes of RCR and, a few certain persons of interest. So then, Je Suis your man on the ground at Daytona. That's right folks..Stand by for another thrilling episode of Jp's Trackside Reports ©
Yee Haa baby..
Fast forward one week..
Ok so... The other day I was in Miami and had to spend $14.34 for a beer.
What a poser frickin waste of space that town has become.
It used to be a super destination.. Well, not anymore.. it's all posers and over priced bull$hit.
I went to the credentials office this morning and was ushered through faster than any other series I have ever..BOOM Hot pass for Jp.
Once I got in the first thing I saw was.... a Mclaren
I was confused.
Then the second thing I saw was.... Am I in some bizarre parallel universe?
Jeff Gordon was in the house, early doors, and has a following as big as Jr.
Poor guy is gonna HATE the farewell tour.
To his credit he went straight to the car and asked for engine changes
Ya know, I Love these Krashlowski fans..To a man they are eriudite and peacefully thoughtful just like BK's muse Eleanor Roosevelt...Look at the love beaming in through the 'fan window'
Stopped by at the Champs pit . He was in a jovial and courteous mood.
Then he saw the newest member of the $hithead club and he went all ...meh.
Noticed that the press corp is getting younger. These kids are either unpaid interns or on work experience for class credit.
All of a sudden I saw someone I knew..!!! I asked this hipster guy standing next to us to snap a pic so I could send it to a mutual friend but he was more interested in taking pictures of himself then focus on us. I finally got a security guard to take the shot.
Soon enough it was Time for the NationBuschFinity race and the drivers made their way to the grid.
I hung with Brendan as he was born in the same hospital as me Cedars of Lebanon.
Meanwhile BK was gittin' giggy wit it
EVREYONE in his stall turned when a whacko came into the pits...
But he's a regular and has a hot pass for life or something like that.
Soon the race started and I ran into an old friend...
She seemed perturbed and unhappy but it may have just been my proximity to her that soured the moment.
Brenden thought his tyres were a bit ...under performing
The action suddenly became furious .
As soon as I snapped THIS PIC
IT ALL WENT SOUTH
Traffic out was a breeze...we will see what happens tomorrow...
RACE DAY here in Daytona.
It's packed and hot and ATT cell service is like an ice cream cone in hell.
But hey..I'm already having a good 'ol time.
EDIT: Yes, I am tuning in. Fingers crossed for no injuries.
That's what I thought this morning as the throngs invaded the pitlane..
Man oh man, This kind of human schlamozzle would send the F1 Jizzeratti into a tailspin
JP can you get a closeup of Kyle's aircast?
He and Sam send you regards Deluxx.
I'm one year into my last rethink. One thing had led to another and I somehow ended up editing a real life magazine about fish feed.
I is hungry too..
Time for a look at the hospitality lunch menu..
I think this race has been great. It has been "pure".
I followed the 48 for the whole race and damn it has been exciting for me.
Here's an autograph for ya RT
Now? Now we cry.
I know I'll do, if Logano wins. Can't stand the kid.
Ha..That's YOUR hatewagon departing the station then.
$hithead was awesome today...glad I joined the club.(see one of my previous posts for hysterical link)
Edit: And in Gordon's final 500, he gets wrecked by the 3. Now that's funny.
Edit: Irony is the best racing resolution.
Ok so the sound of the pack as they roar past is a prerequisite for any of you so called race fans to experience.
The end of the race, with 3 wide lap after lap, was worth all my effort to get here..
I scanned 'your favorites' on the fanvision radio during that section and heard mostly silence.
Hendrick have it together...Not only are there free massages in the garage anytime the car is out...
The crew chief does the child minding!!!!
I hear she's a handful.
My little side project turned out well
See about 1:26-1:33 in.
No Amber Lounge for this victory...
What a fun weekend
