Geico-400

Watch on chicagobusiness.tumblr.com

Nascar driver Dale Earnhardt Jr. briefly shuts down a block of State Street this morning to perform a burnout stunt in his number 88 car.

The publicity stunt by Nascar and Chicagoland Speedway was designed to promote next month’s Geico 400 at the Joliet track, which kicks off Nascar’s Chase for the Sprint Cup on Sept. 15.

Spent some time editing footage of my family’s trip, last week, to Chicagoland Speedway. We went to the GEICO 400 NASCAR Sprint Cup race.  We got to see Michael Waltrip take a picture, which he said was for his twitter account, but mysteriously was never posted. We also get a good feel of the Chicagoland Speedway Facility and all the goin’ ons that accompany the NASCAR Circus.
