Nascar Race

Some of our blog friends are, no doubt, fans of Nascar Racing - My nephew Craig who works for Harlequin (one of the sponsors for Car No. 99 - Carl Edwards) invited me and a few of his friends to the Michigan International Speedway this past weekend ..............
Carl Edwards is one of five drivers that make up the Roush Fenway Racing team - They are as follows:

Carl Edwards - Car No. 99
Jamie McMurray - Car No. 26
David Ragan - Car No. 06
Matt Kenseth - Car No. 17
Greg Biffle - Car No. 16

Saturday's Race.............The Nationwide Series Race - 200 Miles was won by our driver Carl Edwards (a very good start to the weekend)

Sunday's "BIG" Race......The Sprint Cup Series Race - 400 Miles was won by our driver Carl Edwards (a very good finish to the weekend) ..................The rookie David Ragan Car No. 06 finished a very respectable third, just behind the points leader Kyle Bush!!

I'm attaching some photos of the Roush Fenway Cars that make up the team being worked on by the various mechanics etc. - they all get the TLC which is required if you want a winner!!

There is also a pic. of Craig with Carl Edward's accounts manager Randy Fuller and a few photos of Carl Edwards himself, which I snapped in his "Driver's Trailer" (where they have a bite to eat, hold meetings etc).

I'll be sending in photos of the actual races - The track, the infield, the pits and some of the individuals who are connected to the entire enterprise of Nascar!!


Thanks Win S.
