The members enjoyed a lovely meal before some indulged in Jim Beam Black.
Path made sure to guard the car before Robby got there.
Robby Gordon was a little late as usual, but made up for it by posing for pictures with the fans at the Jim Beam Toyota show car.
Shortly after that the Jim Beam/Operation Home Front bus arrived with the Jim Beam executives.
The Beam Girls were there.
And Beam Boys!
Some members of the fan club were treated to a ride in the street legal car.
Robby signed autographs, gave out hats and ladies tank tops, fan cards and lots of hugs! When I asked him about the lack of a souvenir trailer at the track, he told us it was due to contract conflicts between Checkered Flag and Monster. He told Path and I the trailer would be back at the Charlotte race under new management.
Now I realize this was done with a bit of humor to it, but I have to say something about Robby on a serious note. If you have never met him, and you have the opportunity to do so, GO FOR IT!! Robby is one of the nicest and most fan friendly drivers you will ever meet. He knew who was there as a Robby fan vs. those just stopping by to see what was happening. He is a great ambassador for his sponsors, and is the first to thank you for purchasing/using their products. He will speak and listed to you with sincerity. He will carry on with you with such a sense of humor; you feel you have been friends forever.
