Like I told a friend, I bet when Hershel got to Portland International Raceway he looked around at the track and said, "Honey, I'm home." This has simply got to be overwhelming for Hershel as well as his family and close friends not to mention his fans. With out a doubt it gives a whole new meaning to the phrase, "Going Full Circle". Can you believe it; Hershel won the very first NASCAR race here before most (if not all) of the other drivers in this weekends event were even born.
As best I could I watched Hershel run his NASCAR West practice laps today at Portland International Raceway by watching it on http://www.pirlive.com/ and an awesome practice session it was. Hershel finished 16th overall and looked super doing it. Tomorrow Hershel will qualify for the BI-MART Salute to the Troops “125″ Race at 11:00am then his race will begin at 2:00pm. This event is one of three that Hershel will be running in the NASCAR Camping World Series.
GO HERSHEL DAMMIT GO!!!!!!
