Saturday, I took a trip out to Houston Motorsports Park with Tony D. and we met the Oswalt family for a night of racing. The racetrack is a paved oval and the night of racing was a blast.

I was covering Speed Fest ’08 for This Week in Houston and Houston MetBlogs and I definitely will be returning.

One of the cool aspects for the fans is that prior to the last two big races, the infield was opened up so that everyone could come out, meet the drivers, touch the cars etc. (Being a member of the media elite, I already had access.) I grabbed a quick photo with Kristin Bumbera who went on to finish fourth in the main event.
