Honeymoon Day 2 Homestead
We woke up early on our second day of honeymoon and Jason went to rent our car for the day! It was a Shelby mustang:
Extremely powerful throaty car. You could raise the front end up off the ground really easy. It was fun to drive. When Jason was bringing it back to the hotel, I could hear him a block away. We got in and drove to Miami Homestead speedway.
Indycar season opener! Yay! We had good seats for the race and there was a lot to see at the track. We got to go in the pits. We could really get right up to the cars. Hence, this picture or Jason's carbon fiber ring on the carbon fiber mirror. There were all of these sheriffs on three wheeled segways. We saw one of them try to put it up on a sidewalk by popping a wheelie, and he almost turned it over. Later we saw another and I told the guy that it looked like fun. This is the result:
After that we sat to watch a great race. The highlight for me was when TK said that it didn't matter that one of his wheels was hanging by a thread, he was going to restart. He eventually had to pull in, and the question you're all asking, where did our guy Vitor finish? 10th, not too shabby. The next day, on to the boat!
