It's a beautiful day here in Las Vegas. Lots of sun and warm temps. We're in between Sprint Cup practices on Saturday. Dale Earnhardt Jr. was fastest in the first practice. Greg Biffle was second, Mark Martin was third and pole-sitter Kyle Busch had the fourth fastest speed. Next practice, Happy Hour practice, starts in 15 minutes.
Friday was fun here at track. We spent the whole day in the Neon Garage where fans watch the teams work on the cars and take pics of the drivers. This year many of the drivers signed autographs through the bottom of the windows. I got autographs from Jeff Gordon, Carl Edwards, owner Jack Roush, David Reutimann, Joey Logano, Bobby Labonte and Robby Gordon.
We heard on the radio on the way to the track today that several of the Toyota Cup drivers will have to start at the rear of the field Sunday because of an engine change. That means Brian Vickers will have start way back like last week at California. Pole-sitter Busch is starting at the back too, but because he had an engine problem during practice on Friday.
That's all for now. Looking forward to the Nationwide Series race later today.
