Uncle Joe Benson @Yankee Doodles for the May '08 NASCAR All-Star Race.
May 17, 2008: Of course Uncle Joe hosted the NASCAR Sprint Cup All-Star Race Party at Yankee Doodles in Santa Monica! The Speed Channel kept checking in for live shots during their three-hour pre-race program, then the 24th running of the NASCAR Sprint All-Star Race from Lowe's Motor Speedway took over the big screens. Throughout the event, J.B. and the KLOS Cool Patrol gave away prizes like a full ticket package for the Pepsi 500 at the Auto Club Speedway, a Richard Petty Driving Experience, autographed Jimmie Johnson merchandise, concert tickets and more. Rock & roll!
First off, you need a mic-on-a-stick!
Then you have to have a Richard Petty Driving Experience race car parked in front of Yankee Doodles on the Santa Monica Promenade.
Meet folks and give stuff away....
Then set-up a shoot for SpeedTV on the Promenade...
More talk with old friends and giving more stuff away (that's Paul Meyser with his Auto Club Speedway ticket package).
Time for another SpeedTV shoot!
Norm Copeland with his signed Jimmie Johnson die-cast car, and the winner of the Richard Petty Driving Experience package!
