NASCAR Visits Montana - Missoula, Montana

“Finishing races is important,
 but racing is more important.”
- Dale Earnhardt Jr. 

We popped over to our local FedEx office yesterday during a tour stop for FedEx's #11 NASCAR car - and the headlights really are just stickers!

But I already knew this, thanks to oft-repeated viewing of the original Cars movie
But I didn't know that the oil reservoir is a 5-gallon tank located just behind the driver's seat, and they often have to seriously pre-heat the oil

(And here's a little animated anthropomorphic repartee to take you back: 
"Lightning McQueen: [bored] Well, you know, race cars don't need headlights, because the track is always lit.
Dusty Rust-eze: Well, so is my brother, but he still needs headlights!")
