I took this past weekend off to spend time with our granddaughter. Since she moved from our house, it's not often we get to spend an entire weekend with her. It was fun just having her with us. This coming weekend it's back to work at the Rockford Speedway. I want to make one correction to the National Short Track Championship page. After post race inspection Casey Johnson's car was disqualified due to some unapproved carburetor parts. The win was awarded to the second place finisher Steve Rubeck.
This weekend's event is the Bahama Brackets. The weekend starts with an open practice Friday night and then the Heats and Qualifiers will run Saturday night. The 50 lap features will run Sunday afternoon with the winner having the choice of prize money or a trip for two to the Bahamas, hence Bahama Brackets. Its a fun event. The weather forecast will be for cool weather and the possibility of rain on Sunday. It will definitely call for dressing warm. I'm looking forward to this weekend because last year, it was on Saturday night, that I went down after my leg collapsed. I was already scheduled for knee replacement surgery on the Monday after the event and this ended my race season. This was the first event that I had ever not finished. This year I will complete the event. Here are some images from last year's event.

A good thing that happened today was the return of my 28-70mm f2.8 from repair. I will pick it up in the morning. I have to give kudos to Sigma for the quick turnaround. If you are ever thinking about a non-OEM lens or other photographic equipment, I would give Sigma a serious look. Their customer service is second to none in the industry. I own four of their lenses and three flashes and have had nothing but good luck with all their products.
