Hold My Beer Watch This

You just can't make this stuff up, gotta love the south! I was reading my Google start up page and saw this headline: "Spanky Spanlger in a preshow at the Charlotte Motor Speedway crashes his RV with the words, Hold My Beer.... Watch This spray painted on the side.
This only grabbed my attention because my poor husband has to cover this Nascar race twice a year, and comes home with stories that could fill a book. I think Gerry has been covering this race for about 30 years now. One year I ended up in the infield hospital with a stomach bug and later stopped Richard Petty at his pit and got someone to shoot our picture together. If you have never been to a Nascar race, it is a thing to behold. It's really scary how many simple minded people can fit into one place at the same time :)

you ain't gonna believe this sh*!-
I know look where I love!
I have to figure out how to blog about our afternoon- we think it all started when the neighbor tried to burn brush......
we were not concern- maybe a little- until Mark heard the explosion.
Seems he blew up a car....
Like I said...

...Freudian Meredith?! hahaha!
That picture is sooo funny! We've got our share of hillbilly-red-necks up here believe it or not in Wasilla (where Sar@ P@lin is from...).

Meredith, WTF!
Cindy, I think Sarah is about as hillbilly as they come!

Lori Buff said...

Tracey, that's an insult to the intelligence of the hillbillies...but I do wonder if Sarah enjoys nascar. Great picture.

What a crack-up! Before moving to the coast, we lived in Bakersfield - well-known for loving NASCAR and, of course, Sarah Palin.

I've been to one racing event at the track... enough for a lifetime.

and then there is Maine... my ex is from maine and i went to his high school reunion at a local country club... i couldn't believe that NASCAR was on a big screen tv and half the attendees were glued to it. Ick.

Well you guys, many in my family are hillbilly/rednecks and I have friends that love Nascar, but Gerry sure does come home grumpy after being around the Nascar crowd for a week. Maybe Sarah Palin should start racing cars :)
