Missed his birthday so to make up for it I took Finley, my 5 year old nephew to his first race,
the Pirelli World Challenge (PWC) season finale at Laguna Seca
The kid likes fast Nissans, good on him. Soo stoked
PWC racer James Wilson was kind enough to let Finn hop in his car.
Couldn't even bother him to look at the camera, kid thinks he's already pro like his old uncle - I'm busy Uncle Ken!
Monitoring a 5 year old is tough work. Didn't have much time to snap pics of the race but here are some beautiful shots taken by others
Was awesome to see KPAX, a local team based out of Sonoma take the crown
Also ran into some friends while at the track
This is Mike, an old coworker from my days at the Department of Veterans Affairs, hugely passionate about motorsports,
and GriffeyDreams' #1 fan since I said screw it and left everything to go race in Canada. Mike, you're the man!
A couple days before the race weekend, I was at Laguna helping PWC driver Tom O'Gorman with some car setup..
Was awesome to see him and the car do well over the weekend as Tom took home two 2nd place finishes and secured himself the championship.
Congratulations Tom and thanks for all the advice. From grassroots to the pros, that's what racing's about. Love it
Quick pitstop to the beach for some ice cream and a swim before heading home after a day at the races :3
