Arizona is a nice state and has a lot of cool desert vibe / southwestern scenery.

I’d like to sit on the mountain in turns 1-2 (old 3-4) next time I go to Avondale.
I love it here. After the rain earlier today, the air is so clear. The desert sky at night is indescribable. So cool. Can't wait to get to the track tomorrow. First time at the track since COVID....

I am the crappiest photographer in the history of the world, but I so love watching the cars get set up/torn down. I love this sport.

It had been so long since I had been to a track. That desert dust got in my eye when I walked in. I live for this....and I can't believe that I am going to be watching the Championship in person. Truck race was good (if not disappointing for MY Toyotas). Ty was lights out in practice.....I think this place might come apart if he wins today. C Bell lost yesterday, but Adam is plugging in Denny/Kyle set up. If he qualifies well, he'll be okay.

Ty got it done....and the place came apart....kinda....only one beer made it to the track. Hell of a race. The kid is different. Visibly brilliant on track.

Ty Gibbs is being groomed by the Gibbs organization to be the champion he is and will go on to be in other series.
His youth and simple fact he has been spoiled slip in one in awhile but he will grow with maturity. Right now he has had instant success and is a shooting star that will be slowed down a bit.
Some of the brashness crept through even though he said all the right things during the on track interview but has to improve to come across a real champion than the one we saw step up in Martinsville. He'll get there. His passion is real and his ability seems natural. What he must learn is to accept defeat as part of the game.

I think as such, he has done what many 20 year olds have done...."Yeah, yeah, yeah....I get it," until they realized they don't, and Dad takes the car keys. Thing is that Ty has millions watching....No excused, but typical of many 20 year olds.....some are exceptional....Chase Elliott as an example, but many (maybe most) have their heads up their asses.....I mean as I was watching the Champion's stage....He is flanked by Monster Girls....I mean, really....20 years old... champion....fame.....He hasn't handled it as well as he should have, but I do think we will look back in 20 years, and say, "He was such a ****head," but look at him now.

More pics later peeps, back to the grind today. An amazing weekend.....of course, the Cup result was a little disappointing....kind of....more later. Let me just say this before I have a chance to post more later. Phoenix gets it. The fan experience is epic. My seats were amazing (Start/Finish, high up), and the infield experience is as it should be.....I will be watching cars navigating Turns 3 and 4 today in my head today while I am supposed to be working.

My Bride and I decided at the last minute to go to the inaugural Phoenix race and bought tickets that were touted as "great seats up above the track and right on the start/finish line !"
Turned out it was first row and we got all the rubber and sand flying in our faces!

Despite the mini sandstorm and barrage of rubber chunks, we were up close and personal as Alan Kulwicki won his first ever NASCAR Winston Cup race and did the Polish Victory Lap.
The nest year I was involved with a team and had much more comfortable race watching arrangements. ;)

The Grand Canyon does not suck. Go there if you haven't.
