R+L Racing

This paint scheme is just in five races throughout the year.

I know it's been done before and I have blogged about it before but hey what can I say, it's a recurring good time. R+L is a trucking company that I use at work and they are co-sponsors of the NASCAR #17 Ford Fusion racing car driven by Matt Kenseth. Twice a year they bring it to a nearby company and we get invited to go see it while enjoying a catered lunch. Yep, a NASCAR racing car and food all in one outing, if you ask me it's a win win situation.

Add to the excitement that Matt won last Sunday in Daytona. Daytona is the one race everyone remembers, granted he was driving the DEWALT Ford, but we all know R+L sponsorship is still there.

When you see the cars up close they are not the most exciting thing to see. There is nothing fancy about them, the engine just sits there looking rather small in the engine compartment, the interior is a cage and only one sit rests there waiting for it's driver. Perhaps the best part is the paint job. But make no mistake the most exciting thing happens when the fire the engine up and the engine roars like a wild animal. Those things are loud and when the car runs you realize how much power is in those engines.

Watching NASCAR on TV is fun but to really appreciate how fast the cars go you must see them in person. My niece once asked me what is so fun about watching a car go round and round in a circle, well all I know is that it just is.

Here's me congratulating Matt for his Daytona 500 win.

These are neat photos! I think the way you set up the photos is more impressive than seeing them on the track!
