ihra-drag-racing-crowd-shot-mirrored-reflection.jpgJim has started his annual summer trek across the country racetrack to racetrack from Raleigh, North Carolina to Tulsa, Oklahoma and everywhere in between. Yep, he’s home a week or so, then gone a week or so. Wash. Rinse. Repeat.

If I enjoyed racing more, I’d probably go along with him. There’s just so much down-time spent sitting around the track, and I’d usually rather be doing something… anything!

Anyhoo… when Jim got back from Dallas last week (he got side-tracked with a business meeting somewhere between here and Tulsa), I assumed my “wife of a race car fanatic” role by downloading and then uploading all of his best photos on the websites of the following dragracing drivers:

Turns out he managed to “squeeze in” a little baseball — Chicago Cubs vs Texas Rangers on June 21, 2007.

Enjoy the photos.
