    Yes- I had media credentials. I was real close to the action. In some cases- I was right next to the cars.
    Camera I took was my back-up- I walked off & left the other bag at home.
    It's a Nikon D100 & a 70-300 old Tamron AF zoom lense.

    We hung around in Phil Lukens pit all weekend. Not much luck for Phil- this pass got him 1st alternate. Had blower rotor & clutch issues.
