A Night At The Races
Tom Bengel, John Thompson, Paul McKinney and I worked as Corner Marshals for the Nature Valley Grand Prix in downtown Saint Paul on Wenesday the 11th. The event was pretty screwed up with rain, crashes, relegated results and a motorcycle sliding into some racers on the corner next to ours. Anyway, I was the only one of us who was actually doing any work... Bengel and McKinney were talking to each other the whole time and Thompson was sitting on the curb talking to his daughter... Of course, with my years of Corner Marshal experience, I had the situation under control... It was fun watching our local racers like Linda Sone, Theresa Moriarity, Dan and Doug Swanson and others competing with the best. In fact, our local racers finished a lot higher than many of the pros.
