We miss all of our family and friends in Jackson, Miss., but Portland's home now.

More fun and festivities before the race.
Jets flew overhead. A UPS man delivered the green flag to start the race. Trucks towed a giant American flag around the entire track. And that's a view of the only campground I saw at the track--not much compared to Talladega, now is it? You can tell how close we were to the end of the grandstand in turn no. 1. We could see the entire track from there.
