Jeff's Trip to Dover for the FedEx400 Benefiting Autism Speaks

Thanks to FedEx, NASCAR, and Autism Speaks my older brother Jeff was able to have the time of his life at the FedEx400 Benefiting Autism Speaks at Dover International Speedway. I wasn't able to attend because I was moving(yes again!), but luckily my other 'brother' Mark was up for the roadtrip. I have to tell you, it felt like I was side-by-side with the two gentle giants as they took part in the weekend festivities. The guys made their first real foray into the Twitter world and I think they nailed it! 

My brother recieved a camera from our dear family friends years back, and it was one of the greatest gifts ever. He rarely leaves home without it and my family loves to look at his photos. Some shots are certainly not ones I would take, but it is so intriguing to see where his eye go and what he deems important or interesting. So please join me as I relive Jeff's wonderful experience at Dover, one photo at a time.
