Since Douglas is still small enough to travel easily he went along for the 3 1/2 hour drive up to Wisconsin. The drive was kind of a practice run for New York since Doug will be making that trip with us as well. He was a prefect travel buddy. He sat in the back seat and kept inching closer and closer to our friend, Dale, who was back there with him.
At the track Douglas stayed close to all the trailers and made lots of friends. He was Mr. Popularity and handled himself well. Even in the extreme heat he refused to go into the air conditioned trailer and instead opted to hang out with the people who wanted to pet him all the time. He did have his own fan and a never ending bowl of ice water, but he took one for the team.
Douglas was looked after by everyone who was parked by us and never wandered away. He knew he had it good.
The weekend ended with a big win for Money Mike and OSR and of course Douglas made it into the winner's circle picture. What a weekend.
