Team Lowe’s Honors Military, Lowe’s Employees w/Patriotic Scheme: Jimmie Johnson and Chad Knaus, along with six Lowe’s employees with more than 30 years of military duty, unveiled the #48 Lowe’s Chevy that Johnson will run in the Memorial Day weekend Sprint Cup event at Lowe’s Motor Speedway. “We typically don’t have a lot of special paint schemes throughout the year,” said Johnson, who will be trying for this fourth win in the Memorial Day weekend race. “This event is usually an exception though. It means a lot to honor our country and all the people in the military. Both my grandfathers served so I understand the importance of showing our support.”

The car’s design carries the names of 12,548 Lowe’s employees who are military veterans or reservists. The names are showcased on the car’s hood and decklid. The remaining paint scheme was inspired partly by Knaus who worked with Lowe’s to create the patriotic-themed car to help honor the military. “For some reason those patriotic schemes we used to run back home have always stuck in my mind,” said Knaus. “They were special and meant something to us. Last year a serviceman approached me at Pocono and told me how much the paint schemes Lowe’s has during Memorial Day weekend meant to those that serve. So I really wanted to work with Lowe’s and the team to create an extra-special one this year.”

Knaus, who got his start in racing by working with his father’s team in Rockford, Ill., used images of the red, white and blue schemes his father drove to help develop the concept for the Memorial Day weekend car. In support of the Memorial Day holiday, Lowe’s will offer a 10% discount to all active, reserve, honorably discharged, and retired military personnel and their immediate families. In addition, a special page has been set up on LowesRacing.com giving fans the opportunity to thank the military members who mean the most to them by posting photographs and stories of themselves, friends or family members on the site. Lowe’s employees also may visit the site to locate the placement of their name on the car.(Lowe's Racing), see images of the scheme on Jayski's #48 Team Schemes page.

Prolly go over to my son in law’s. He’s got a fabulous outdoor BBQ/kitchen setup. It’s covered and he brings out his big screen. It’s close enough to the pool you can watch the grandkids and the occasional babe, Lots of room to lounge with the laptop too.

Everyone needs a grill!

If I was Oprah, I’d say “Grills for everyone!”

“You want a grill, you get a grill!”

“Here’s your grill!”

“And here’s your grill!”

“And here’s your grill!”

“You’re gonna need charcoal with that grill.”

“Here’s your charcoal.”

“And here’s your charcoal.”

“And you’re gonna need something to grill...”

“Here’s your Angus beef.”

“And here’s your Angus beef.”

Um, Nork, what was our budget for the 600 again?

Thanks Brad's Gramma, and I appreciate your remembering! It was great. Surf & turf and an old wine and some NASCAR. Couldn't have been better.
Glad to see you on these threads and trying to hold some accountability.
Even losing causes can be worthwhile.
