2010 GoodGuy Hotrod Nationals, O'Reilly Raceway Park, Indianapolis

WOW! I hadn't made it down to the GoodGuys show in Indianapolis for several years. Everything seemed to fall in place this year in order to go, and my oldest son and father were able to go as well. When we headed out of Muncie, on Saturday morning, the skies looked pretty dark. By the time we hit New Castle, Indiana, we were in the middle of a heavy down pour.
We actually pulled into the New Castle WalMart parking lot and contemplated scrapping the trip and turning around to head home. But optimistic thinking prevailed, as we headed to Interstate 70 to make our way to Indianapolis.
 The "Gasser Corral" is always one of the first stops we make as we enter the show.
 Well, as you can see from the first few pictures in this set, the rain lifted by the time we reached Indianapolis, but initially it was still pretty overcast. Dad had packed rain gear for everyone, but my son and I both said optimistically, "We don't need no stinkin' ponchos!" lol

By early afternoon, the sun was out and it became very hot and humid. Lots more from Indy in the days ahead. Come back tomorrow to see more pictures from the Hotrod Nationals!
