Those who know me, know that I am a NASCAR fan.  And those who know me also know that I am a Jeff Gordon fan.  So while we were planning our trip to Charlotte, NC to see the NASCAR Hall of Fame, I discovered that Hendrick Motorsports (the team that Jeff Gordon drives for) was just a hop and a skip away.  Since we were that close, I HAD to go! 
It was SO COOL!!!!!  I mean you are there, in their shop and garage.  We also just happened to be in the right place at the right time to see Kasey Kahne's pit crew practice.

Jimmie Johnson's 5 championship trophies

Their beautiful facilities

Barely fitting in the cockpit of a race car.  I got in but I was a bit concerned about getting back out
