The above photo shows thousands of people on Market Street, on an August evening. You don't have to be a NASCAR fan to be here. Just about every restaurant had a tent on the street, and the food was tremendous. Yes, there was a beer tent, but it was discontinued due to liability concerns. As I noted yesterday, the festival moved to Bridge Street a few years ago, and it lost something in my view.
This is driver Sterling Marlin and I. At the time, he was driving the Coors Light #40 car. Nice guy.
I hope Scranton's NASCAR festival goes well today.
