SCCA @ Homestead-Miami Speedway

Since I haven't posted since Thanksgiving, I am going to start with what we are doing this weekend and work backwards to try to get this blog caught up.

On January 1st I was browsing on the Internet trying to fin out if Homestead-Miami Speedway offered tours. They don't, but they did have an SCCA (Sports Car Club of America) race put on by the Florida Region of SCCA. A very nice gentleman returned my email on the same day and said we would be welcome to join them. Oh boy! We were quite excited.

Just a peek of the grandstands sticking out over the top of the trees.
Main Grandstands

Beautiful, Palm-lined drive up to the grandstands.

Look! A pace car.

And another one!

More cars waiting to go on track.

Check out the yellow sticker. Had to have a shot of it.

I found a quilt!

Love my Cameros.

Tom and I in the Registration and Credentials building.

Me on Sat morning in the pits getting a selfie. Wet hair don't care.
Bob Ricker, this weekend's Race Steward and our boss. He works for Guest Services for the track.

We spent Friday, Saturday, and Sunday selling t-shirts for the event. Not bad duty at all.

We are having a great time here and meeting a lot of nice people. It is so interesting to learn some of the behind-the-scenes activities and duties. We couldn't be in a better group. Thanks so much to the Florida Region SCCA for including us in the crew for The Palm Tree Majors.
