Indy Cars in the Bay Area

This past weekend we watched the Indy Racy League series at Infineon Raceway in Sonoma, California. This was the first-ever road course race (aka “natural terrain course”) for IRL and the first top-tier open wheel race in Sonoma in 35 years.

As a bonus, we had a chance encounter with Danica Patrick, this year’s hottest star in IRL. She came running out of the Argent Mortgage pre-race event and hopped on her scooter, signing only one autograph in the process. On Monday, my dad noticed a picture of Danica in the Stockton Record and spotted me in the background.

The Record doesn’t put their pictures online, but here’s a scan from the paper. Click to see the larger image — I’m the goofy looking guy in a white shirt in the background:
