Another Random Image From The Library

I have been sorting out some of the over 4,000 images in my library, and yes, most of them are auto related.

Anyway, this olelongrooffan came across this image of the Daytona International Speedway's backstretch from May 2009. We had some torrential rains down here and the track was severely flooded.

That rainwater is about 20" deep on the topside of the track.

This olelongrooffan can't help but think those rains contributed to this and this.

By the way, International Speedway Corporation is repaving their flagship speedway, to the tune of $20-22 million, starting right after the July 4 NASCAR race and it is scheduled to be complete by the first week in January.

All events at the track have been cancelled making me wonder about the Turkey Rod Run this Thanksgiving.

Anyway, ISC is setting aside a section of the bleachers for the general public to view the process.

And it's free admission.

You can bet this olelongrooffan will be blogging about that as I

Celebrate Life.

Barngoddess1 has already started the "trip planning" process.
And your trips have a great influence on how our trip is developing. NO Interstate highways. Boy will that be fun to blog about.
