This Friday is the NASCAR Grand National East and West divisions racing here in the Minnesota 150. Here's a link to one of the tracks I go to where this event is happening. http://elkospeedway.com/default.aspx I believe that Jeffery Earnhardt is the randson of Kyle. Or maybe Dale Jr. A grandson of one of those anyhow. Plus other up and coming future stars of NASCAR series races. But this is the type of great racing we get at our local track. Only $20 for general admission and a chance for the meet and greet for one hour before the races. get autographs free advertising itmes of the driver s etc. I've gotten a lot of autographs including Dick Trickles, Kyle Busch, J.J. Yealy, and also Gregg Biffle to mention a few. I am going to have a blast this Friday evening. HAPPY RACING FROM GRANDPA BOB!!~

Oh man your lucky I want to go. I wish they'd get stuff like that up here. They seem to have put promotions on hold up here since they started the negotiations on the track up here.

Oh yes you have to try to get that picture - you can be sure Jeff will be big someday, he's young but it's certainly in his blood :)

I'm pretty sure Jeff is grandson of Dale (senior). I saw Dale Jr. run time trials at Michigan International Speedway several years ago (didn't have tickets for the actual race $$$$). A good friend of mine who races local met both Jr. and Senior at different times.

That's great, not that you forgot but that you've met them both. My friend, Randy the Race Car Driver as my kids refer to him got to race on 'the big track' (MIS). He said if he won he wanted me to be his trophy girl (such a sweetie he is). Afraid he came in last place but it was still the greatest thrill of his life - he raced where the 'big boys run'.

I think it is going to be taped by Speed TV. They have done quiet a few races from here both taped and live. Also I read a few days ago that NASCAR has rated Elko Speedway as the 4th best short track in the United States. Wooo Hoooo. Now I hear it's a good chance of rain Friday night Saturday morning. I'm hoping it holds off for a day though. Ugghh. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

That's awesome! I hope you get to meet Jeffrey Earnhardt, Good Luck! :) I live near a local track, Lanier National Speedway in Braselton, Ga. and Dale Earnhardt used to come there all the time back in the 90's.
