Thursday's Things in a Row

I saw many things in a row last Sunday when my son and I went to the Phoenix International Raceway and watched the NASCAR race. You can read part one of the post here. Part two will be featured on Friday.

Looking up at the stands from the pit, I saw the flags and the lights, plus the row of bleachers AND the fence posts all in a row. This was two hours prior to the race starting, so the stands are quite empty.


These are the cars parked on the racetrack in the order that they qualified.


Rows and rows of tires at the ready for Dale Earnhardt's race car.




Race employees



And last, but certainly not LEAST, the racing cars!


Do you have anything that will "rev" up my engine this week?

Those are the best kind of things in a row, Pat. You make me envious all over again this week!

But this is a wonderful post. Thank you. Oh yes, were there any autographs for you?

No shortage of rows there! Great theme (I never realized how many tires one car can go though). We love the races~ Drag racing mostly. Going to Rt. 66 here in Joliet is a yearly advent for us.

You got some great things in a row at PIR. I love seeing all the cars lined up.

Your photos from the pits in the post below are great. You got up close to the real action. I'm going to have to show hubby your photo of Robby Gordon's Speed Energy truck. We know Robby from the Baja.
