“Shake and bake!”

Ricky Bobby, Cal Naughton, Jr., Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby, Sony Pictures, 2006.

TIME:  7:29-8:37 PM
PLACE:  Belle Clair Speedway
SUBJECT:  At the stock-car races

I volunteered to help at the “Battle at Belle-Vegas” that my work sponsored at the Speedway this evening.  We signed people up for a raffle (Cardinal baseball tickets) from 5-7pm then we were able to stay and watch the races.  I was given extra tickets, so DQ, SD and several of my cousins joined me.   We were able to sit in the enclosed VIP viewing tower.  The speedway gave us t-shirts and also served us chicken, beef and shrimp kabobs, baked potatoes and water – it was all good!

They had late models, midgets plus 600cc micro sprints.

It was still loud inside the tower!

Of course only I would go to the races and come home with a picture of stacked milk cartons.
