Very tempting my friend, but I'm signed on for the whole weekend at Winchester. So much racing going on there, and we've got a lot of friends were getting together with throughout the weekend. Over the years, we've went to at least 10 of the 400's at Winchester. During that time, we've met some great racin folks.

It's pretty neat, you end up sitting in the grandstands with a lot of racin personalities, drivers and media people, and just great race fans, and it's different each day.

Have fun at Eldora!!! We're at the track real early Sunday morning, maybe I'll see ya then!!

What a GREAT weekend!!!

Erik did it, he won his 3rd Winchester 400 in a row, and collected the $100,000 bonus for winning the 3 triple crown races. Man that kid can drive!!

Another kid that can drive (not such a kid anymore) is our very own Jon Beach. No one came close to turning as many laps around that wicked fast half mile than Jon, no one even close....

Jon competed in the CRA/Jegs Series 100 lap race on Friday night, then he competed in the CRA LM Sportsman 50 lapper on Saturday night (5th place finish), and then he started 37th out of 38 starters in the Winchester 400, and stayed running right until the very end and ended up with a 13th place finish!!! Not too bad at all, ESPECIALLY CONSIDERING HE DID ALL THIS WITH JUST ONE CAR!!! Jon and his Dad, Mike, were the ONLY pit crew, and did all the work to make the necessary changes for each class, all by themselves. All weekend long they were getting the car ready for the next class. Amazing dedication.

GREAT JOB BEACHES!!!

You may not of heard us, but Linda and I were cheering for ya!!

Thanks for the kind words Big Ed. A lot of work went into this weekend! We were glad to be able to load the car in the trailer under its own power at the end of the weekend. This weekend was something we talked about doing all winter then all summer long. With Winchester Speedway being one of my favorite tracks it was pretty cool to have a race to be in each day.
Race each race as if it would be your last!
