Speed Week - Daytona 500

Trip to Daytona for the race was exceptional.  We departed a very cold, 5 degrees F, Dayton on the morning of 15 Feb.  Ray put out an edict that we should drive until we hit at least 32F, so we ended up pushing for 14-hours until we reached a rest stop outside of Savannah, GA!  825 more words
