The weather certainly has not cooperated with the Summer Nationals crowds this weekend, but the gray skies have just put an overall damper on the event rather than making it a total washout.
Earlier today I took my (pedal) bike for a ride downtown to check out the scene prior to 3pm when they would start charging admission. I was down there about noontime under some gloomy skies, there were pockets of people hanging out at the tunnel watching about a half dozen motorcycle dudes who were hanging out and putting down various tricks and stunts.
I rode my bike around and thru The Crowne Plaza and looked over the pockets of cars that were downtown rather than at Green Hill Park. Everyone that I saw was on their best behavior with plenty of motorheads and lots of fathers sharing their passion with their young ones.
And speaking of fathers, Happy Birthday Dad!! I took pics of both GTO's that I saw to send to my father who has what I think is a 68. His is in sweeter condition than the two that I saw today, but he will enjoy the pics nonetheless.
