Sylvania 300 Nascar, Loudon, New Hampshire

My dad and I went to the Sylvania 300 in Loudon, New Hampshire over the weekend.  We went last year which was my first Nascar race.  We enjoyed it so much, that we went back this year.  We also got the pre-race pit pass, which was a complete joke for $100.  Anyway, some drivers were doing appearances at their souvenir haulers, which we didn't know about because we were in the pit area.  By the time we made it up to the souvenir alley, the tickets(75) for Keselowski, Biffle and Logano were long gone.  Brian Vickers had a signing as well, but they held 25 tickets back for anyone who bought a car for $50.  I told my buddy that I would try to get the auto for him, so I figured he would be ok with getting the car signed.  Robby Gordon was also doing a free unlimited signing at his hauler so I jumped in line for that too.

Here is the Brian Vickers car that I got signed for my buddy.  Vickers had a great day racing near the front for most of the day and finishing a very good, 5th.
I was able to slip him a card to get signed for myself.
Robby Gordon signed this card for me.  He was great with the fans.  Laughing and joking around with everyone.  Unfortunately, he had some brake problems early in the race and had to retire to the garage.
Mark Martin strolled out on pit row and was the only autograph I got for my $100 pit pass.  He was great and signed for everyone who requested a signature.  I think he may be retiring this year as I know Kahne is taking his spot next year with Hendrick's motorsports.  Mark led for a good portion of the race early on but finished 24th, 1 lap down due to some unscheduled pits.

  1. Great autos!

    I've always been intrigued with NASCAR autographs. The only one I own is Jeff Gordon, but I think I may try to pick up a pit-pass next time they come to SoCal.
