    Anybody going? Would be fun to get a group together.

    I'll be there with media credentials.

    Here is the full set for John and I in the pits with Mika and all the other Finns:

    http://flickr.com/photos/jaredplumme...7604642922609/

    Mika is a super nice guy. Hell, if you did not know he was a driver, you would have thought he was just hanging out. On the grid before the race, he showed John and I inside his Ferrari. SICK! It rides about 1 and 3/4" off the ground. Sequential Dog Box... etc.

    Sucks that when he got in the car for the driver change, electrical problem killed their class lead.

    Also, for all you Hockey fans, we were drinking beer with Esa Tikkanen. He is a buddy of Mika's from Helsinki. He has 5 Stanley Cups and used to rock the ice with Gretzky. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Esa_Tikkanen

    Crazy day!
