This was taken in the same spot just a different angle. This is not a grab attemp since this Is a file tag. But just thought it was cool

I'm feeling better but have church and other obligations today. I'll grab this tomorrow if it is still there. My laptop is down so i'll have to get creative on posting it. Don't have one them thar smarty phones and I can't figure out just how to get the picture to go up from my phone to the interweb. I took a picture of my phone below in case one of you tech wiz kids could help.

Looks like you dropped the tag picture when you added the close up.

Found it though. Street View will get you there, but you won't find the sign on it, only the surrounding buildings. Looks like we're still in hillbilly striking distance.

new tag post clerification

Sorry about the confusion. I let flasher post his grab on my laptop and he failed to log me out and it came up in my name. He corrected it in his last post. Hope that will clear everything up.

Wow I called that two weeks ago. Every one at Penske is very happy to be 2012 cup champions. People work in racing their whole life's and never win a NASCAR cup championship. Im very lucky to be part of it at 28 years old.

nascar champions

congradulitons on your championship. I can tell you are very proud of your job and your employer. I too worked in and around the racing world for 25 years. I worked with the fuel supplier for nascar and delivered racing fuel to all the race facilities and most of the race tracks they race at. I loved my job and looked forward to going to work every day. I retired in 2008. I designed, built and rode this iron butt bike in 2005 with a lot of fabrication help from several nascar fabricators.Most of the work was done at action engineering in denver nc. It has 2 rally wins and several top 5 finishes in iron butt rallys. It was also used in several coast to coast record runs.

Grabbed!

Licoln Academy Rd in Gastonia. I would have prefered going after the Rt. 80 tag but I am pleased the KLR did the 280 mile round trip without a hitch. 70+ mph all the way and not a drop of oil burned. New tag later as my computer with all of my file photos is dead and so I'll have to go out and get one.
