Daytona Pepsi 400, 2000

The 50 car and Ricky Craven had a strong showing in Talladega, until the motor gave out, so we headed to Daytona with high hopes.  The team struggled early and had to find a lot of speed to make the show.  The crew dug in, went to work and found what they needed to make the field.   After qualifying the team had little time to get ready for happy hour and as a result went to the race with a lot of question marks.  The unknowns would end up costing the team a solid run while fighting a tight condition and 2 bad sets of tires.   The team kept fighting and ended up with a 29th finish on the lead lap.  Going into the weekend we were cross cooking with Mary Whitesell on Jeff Gordon's car which was a lot of fun and provided both teams with a change of pace.  After cooking I spotted for Ricky on the back straight, we came back with all 4 tires and no damage so I didn't screw it up this time.

Daytona 500, 2000

Daytona is always an interesting place, all the teams are trying to look their best because it is Daytona.  This years Speedweeks took on a new meaning for me, I was there as a working journalist.  We were wearing 3 hats in Daytona, first we were gathering insight, comments and data for Inside Alabama Racing, our new radio program. We also shot 2  cooking segments for Southern Experience (which can be seen on Tuesday nights on the Outdoor channel) from the garage area.  We were also shooting footage for a pilot for a weekly TV show on the ARCA racing series.  All of these hats gave us a unique perspective of the weekend and an opportunity to talk with a lot of people. We  hope you enjoy some of the pictures from the weekend.
