I was the lucky receipent of some vendor tickets to Carb Day. Best way to attend that shit show, stay away from the drunks in your own private suite with a bartender! After the vendor dog and pony show, we made our way to the pits to see the real action. Normally you get this kind of view fighting your way for a photo opt among the swag merchandisers trying to score a buck on a signature.
But once I made contact with my friend who works for the Kanaan team, we got a better view. Other side of the ropes!
Even up close and personal with the car!
It was really cool to see the guys working on the real deal that would be circling the track in just a few days. We made our way around a few more garages to find swarms of people chasing this guy.
I had no idea who it was until I heard someone in the crowd “That’s Roger Penske”. I wondered if I got close enough to him, his fortunes would rub off on me. I could use any portion of 1.4 billion dollars. But a picture would have to do.
Then we found the car my company sponsors. Our logo is probably the first thing to wear off in a crash. Play I spy below…
Just in time for a photo opt with the driver!
