Our second year attending this fun fundraiser!

The start.

Also for the second year, we participated in the Home Depot Car Show
in Scottsboro AL on the way to Atlanta.

Scottsboro Home Depot Show

The Corvette section.

Some of the rest of the show.

Then it was on to the Atlanta Motor Speedway.

Gathering and registration in the garage area.

For each $25 donation you got 5 (paced?!) laps around the track in groups
of no more than 15 cars. I paid for 2 sessions.

I had a camcorder on the dash, positioned to not only capture the track ahead
but also the head up display to show speed and RPM. Of my 10 laps,
I saw a high of over 130 mph on 7 of them. This was the high!

After the 2 back to back sessions, I parked to just hang out,
visit and watch the action as the sun set.

Then I headed off to Bremen GA for the night.

This was the scene in front of the Microtel as I returned to the car in the morning!

Back home again.
