Sounds like you had a great time.

I used to go when it was AMA and they raced at the California speedway. I was always shocked at how accessible they riders were for pictures and autographs. Back then it was mladin, spies, duhamel, zemke, and some Haydens. I even found kevin schwantz walking around.... I miss them racing there.

It was cool as hell. Yeh, the riders are so accessible. I walk right up to Tony Elias, he was just sitting on a scooter, chillin. I walk up shook his hand, said good luck and be safe & he thanked me. Cam was climbing on a scooter that I was walking by and I asked him if he would take it easy and let the other riders have a chance to win, which made him laugh. Roger didnt seem to thrilled with the meet & greet but I got an autographed poster, shook hand, & told him I'd be cheering for him to win. I know he had a lot on his mind since Pittsburgh was where he was when he found out about Nickys accident. It was a neat experience all in all. You spend so much time watching these guys on TV, reading about them in magazines and all, and they were right there in front of you like regular folks except they have extraordinary jobs. Cool as hell, cant wait to go again. Jake Gagne was real nice and receptive. I told him I was a Honda man and was cheering for him. I tried to buy some Broaster Chicken since I was hungry and it would help support the Honda team but they dont sell chicken. They only make it to feed the team. WTF.
