A coworker of mine posted a note on the office kitchen wall that she has 2 tickets available for purchase for the Indianapolis 500 in May. This, in turn, has led to a few conversations around the office about car racing. Which is how yesterday I learned out that my other (male) coworker and Paul share the same favorite NASCAR driver:
Mr. Trickle is the most winningest short track driver in history. He is 70 years old and still races. In 1984 he won NASCAR Rookie of the Year driving #84 Miller High Life Buick (the champagne of beers, see above), and he used to drill a hole in his helmet so he could smoke his cigarette while he drove. And his name is Dick Trickle.
…and that’s all the knowledge I have to impart on you today. This afternoon I fly down to Atlanta to wish my sister safe travels as she departs on her first deployment for the US Army, so I probably won’t be back online until Monday.
Have a good weekend.
