    Don't ask me why, but I've never gone to the Wally presentation after a race.
    It was a lot of fun and one of the things that stood out was Alan Reinhart's very close bond with the drivers. Great stuff.

    The finals at Pomona last year was my first time as well.
    He does a great job.
    Man, he was covered in powerade too! Sticky situation, but he went on and it was a fun deal.

    I agree it's awesome! Everyone should go to at least one Winner's Circle! Alan and the drivers are classic with each other.

    For those here that slam AR for being a puppet for NHRA (which is the farthest thing from the truth if you knew him), this is the part of him that makes him as knowlegable about the sport as he is- NOT because of who's shirt he wears on the weekend.

    His association with the drivers and crews is something we could all dream about- his knowledge of the sport makes for great bench racing or great for killing down time while he's on the mic, and the relationship that he has with many of teams out there allows him to entertain us about the little known things that we all want to know about (one of the reasons we all hang out HERE).

    Plus, the fact of WHOS numbers he has in his speed dial that will pick up before the third ring would make you cry...:D

    Do a winner's circle if you get a chance- its one of those things about this sport that you'll get to say "I remember back in the day when I did that..", when all the newbies are musing about how cool that must have been... :cool:

    It's a good thing that Capps doesn't tackle Alan anymore; with the Napa team's success so far, he would be a bruised mess.:p

    I seem to remember that Ron used to tackle Alan at the top end; Ron may be a sawed-off little runt (like me); however, he can definitely take care of business.:D:p:D

    Thank You all for the kind words, I do try to have fun with it and I'm proud of my connection with the drivers. When Capps brought up the Van Halen thing I cringed a little-LOL I love it when the drivers bust my chops as well.

    And if my phone ever turns up missing, I guess I'll know who has it-LOL

    Alan
