But today as I turned the corner heading home I saw this sitting in their parking lot! Yup that is a Matt Kenseth #17 race car. It is a car that was raced a few years ago. Matt seems like a nice guy and has even won a Championship. He isn't Tony Stewart. But still a very cool way to end my work day. They had just finished serving lunch to all the Bilstein employees and where getting ready to load it up and head out.
Yup that is Jeff with the hauler
This is the little room at the front of the hauler tha the driver and crew can relax in. I was in a different Hauler a few years ago for Buckshot Jones' 00 car and they more of a dining room table set-up then the living room set-up this Hauler has.
Did you notice that Jeff was with me right after work? Yes that is not the normal. This morning I was heading out to my car when I found that I had no headlights. Leaving for work at 4:15 am makes having headlights a must. So Jeff had to get up really quick and drive me to work this morning. It was really nice getting into his already air conditioned car on this 100 degree day rather then getting into my car that had been baking in the sun all morning. He wasn't able to locate the broken light switch but with a desire to not get up out of bed so earlier tomorrow he just took the one from his Passat and installed it into my New Beetle, so tomorrow I am driving myself to work. It is kinda cool how many parts are shared between our cars.
