My First NASCAR Experience... at the Milwaukee Mile
I went up to this race to work for my client, GunBroker.com -- the car's sponsor. The reason there are no pics during the actual race is because I ended up being part of Jason's pit crew! I was the guy that handed the 20-gallon gas cans over the wall to the refueling guy.
Believe it or not, it was one of the coolest things I've ever done... I know that sounds crazy, but until you're there, with the fumes of burnt race gas in the air and the electricity of the event itself surrounding you, you won't be able to get a feel for what it's really like. Television doesn't convey even 10-percent of what you feel/experience when you're there in the middle of it.
Experiences like that are one of the best things about my job. I don't have 'em every day, but when they happen, they're awesome!
