Throughout the last week, we have been gathering driver appearances for Speedweeks and this is what I have thus far. I have to admit, that while I am very pretty impressed with the Dale Jr./Adidas promotion on February 12th at the Volusia Mall, I personally will not be within 10 miles of it, with the fear of getting trampled by rabid JR fans.
If anyone has any other driver appearances they would like to add, shoot us an email and I will gladly post it to the list.
