Today is the All-American race day, the annual 1100 miles of racing during Memorial Day weekend.
I’m cooking today – beer brats, corn on the cob, potatoes on the grill, salad, homemade fried apple pies, and homemade ice cream.
PS- I’m pulling for Danica Patrick in the Indy race, and I’m pulling for my driver, Jimmie Johnson, in the Nascar race. The Coke 600 is at the Lowe’s Motor Speedway, also known as Jimmie Johnson’s house, mainly because he has won 5 of the last 7 races at Lowe’s (and his sponsor is Lowe’s Home Improvement Warehouse).
And one of my favorite quotes has to do with Lowe’s Motor Speedway (it is from Nascar.com):
Jimmie Johnson, driver of the Lowe’s Chevy has made the Lowe’s Motor Speedway his own personal improvement warehouse.
