James Hinchcliffe is a Firestone Indy Lights Driver and member of the Pace Car Team. In this post “Hinch” describes his participation during the Firestone 550K Race at Texas Motor Speedway.  

When the manager of the Pace Car Team told me I was going to Texas Motor Speedway for the latest round of the IZOD IndyCar Series, I was stoked!  What she neglected to mention was that it was going to be 1000 degrees and 800% humidity!  Being a pasty Canadian fellow, this presented a problem.  But armed with SPF 85, a full brimmed hat and those crazy wrap-around sunglasses that old people in Florida wear, I was good to go!

This trip I got to go down with CK, whom you all know from his famous underwear line.  OK, it’s not THAT CK, it was fellow PCT member Charlie Kimball.  We flew down Friday morning and when we walked out of the plane it felt like we got hit by a Mack Truck of heat!

The backwoods of B-Ham

The backwoods of B-Ham

As I catch up on my blog posts, I thought that my Barber adventure was best displayed in pictures. One of my favorite events so far this year, Birmingham and its rolling hills did not disappoint. And at one point, we did experience the “backwoods of B-ham” while detouring around a traffic jam (someone nominate Zepp to be a full-time pace car driver).

Here’s a summation of the weekend:

I was most impressed by the race fans who came out for this race. They came with their motorcoaches and weekend sporting set-ups. And if we could get everyone to paint their car like a super spirited cheer parent, we’d have the largest and cheapest mobile marketing campaign EVER. Get on it, people!

IndyCar race fans!
