we score some pit passes and get dirty.

blake, mitch, and tyler on the back "garage" row.

hosing down the track.

we had what are called 'cold' passes. as such, we get to hang around the pit and garage areas until the track goes 'hot', then we have to leave. somehow, blake lands a 'hot' pass and reminds us about his elevated status all damn day. turns out, no one was monitoring the 'hot/cold' status and we pretty much could go where we wanted all day long. so take that, braggy blake.
