And he’s off….

June 19, 2009

Friday (6/19) will be incredibly busy and exciting!  Hershel starts the day with an interview at 6:00 a.m., then heads to the track for practice (track opens 8:30 – 11:30 a.m.),  followed by qualifying runs (begins at 1:50 p.m.). The fastest top 36 cars will qualify for the race.  

Driver introductions will be held on Saturday at noon with the Bennett Lane Winery 200 scheduled to start at 12:30 p.m. (California time). 

Sunday night, don’t forget to watch the Windtunnel interview on Speed TV! (scroll down for information and link).

    Three guys at the retirement home were sitting around talking and one said, “Anyone want to paly a game of old maid?” The second one said, “That sounds like fun but we need another player to make it a foursome. Where’s McGriff?” The third guy replied, “Better count Hershel out. Last week he had a new race car built and he’s racing at Infineon this weekend.”

    How cool can any one man be in one lifetime? Just last week Hershel test a brand new, never before been raced car and today at the age of 81 he qualified for tomorrow’s Nascar race. When I die, I want to come back as Hershel McGriff.
