In the hours preceding a NASCAR Nextel Cup Event there are tons of fans with their garage passes around their necks and cameras in hand, wandering through the pits and the garage area looking for that one picture that says, "I was there!"
or "Look who I got my picture taken with!".
But mostly it's "Check out the picture I got of this car,"
"or this one,"
"or this one!"
Obviously some cars are more photographed than others.
Popular in the Garage area this weekend the 24 car of Jeff Gordon and the 8 ride of Dale Jr.
Everyone was taking pictures too.
From the ladies dressed down and baited to trying to land a million dollar catch, from the quasi-exectutives that run around the garage pretending to be busy.
I even saw a TV Soundman taking a picture or two. I missed the shot of that, and then lost track of him.
All in all life in the pits before an event is quite the event itself.
