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

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.
