Living the racing life.
Just got in from the GoPro Motorplex in Mooresville for the Little 600 event. It was really cool and most of the drivers were really awesome to hang around and chat with. The racing for the most part was close and fun. The only thing that I did not care for was that some of the drivers just plain ignored the fans, the worst of which were Kasey Kahne and Danica Patrick. They could not be bothered for a picture or autograph all night. Kahne, Patrick, Stenhouse, and to an extent Larson just stood around behind a barrier and talked amongst themselves all night long. In a particularly jerky move, as the drivers were heading to the drivers meeting, they all stopped and took pictures and signed autographs except for Kasey. Denny Hamlin was running late and at least acknowledged us and said he would get us after the drivers meeting. True to his word, he came back out and hung out with the fans when he wasn't racing. Kasey got there on time and just walked by all of the fans. Then, when he left the drivers meeting he was taken to task for that by some vocal fans and responded by shaking his head and walking away... sorry to vent about Kasey, but it was just so out of line of him to act that way to kids and little old ladies that just wanted a minute of his time. The rest of the drivers were great and it was fun. I'll post pics of my over-autographed hat later...
