Warning: sarcastic race pictures ahead

Lola LIVE 2010 Brickyard 400!

I made a new page for my blogging adventure to Indianapolis Motorspeedway for the 2010 Brickyard 400. I will be adding the LOLs for the weekend here, comments and observations.

Thanks to the New Media staff at IMS for inviting me to be a guest blogger. I had a great time, took over 500 pictures, met a bunch of twitterers and had unprecedented media access (well, it was to me).

Things I learned at the Brickyard…

  • History is WAY COOL!
  • Gotta wear some good walkin’ shoes or you are in trouble!
  • Indianapolis Motorspeedway is so hott, you have to use 2 t’s!
  • Sooo…it’s good to know the media center has awesome A/C!!
  • 200ish mph on the frontstretch looks reallllly fast up close.
  • It’s kinda fun having access to places previously inaccessible to you.
  • I’m normally shy, but I kinda liked when people actually knew of my blog.
  • It’s hard being a fan when you are supposed to be doing a job.
  • Scheduling is king, but hard to do when you haven’t done this before.

Here are my regular photos from the weekend, uncaptioned:

      I was invited by Indy’s “New Media” team. They manage a blog for the speedway and IRL I think, also the Indy twitter account. It was a total surprise to me to be asked as guest blogger. I say start promoting your blog. See if PIR has new media team or marketing team and contact them with your pitch. good luck!!
