    On July 3rd I was allowed to play The National Anthem at the Charlotte Motor-speedway for the Legends Big Money 100 and Fireworks show. The folks at the speedway were the most accommodating I have played for. They were kind enough to let me watch the race from an air conditioned suite. Considering the extreme temperatures it was greatly appreciated. Below are a few photos and the video.

    This time I used my zoom q3 recorder. The audio is better quality than my past postings. There is some delay from the PA system. The video portion leaves a lot to be desired as the Zoomq3 doesn't have much "zooming" ability.

    I hope you enjoy. I did!

    I deleted the links for the photos. For some reason they aren't working. I'll figure it out and post them later.

    I love seeing Legends perform. And the trumpet playing was good too. Sorry, just kidding. I enjoy those little Legend race cars. You did a good job. Straight ahead Star Spangled Banner is good. Sometimes we trick it up too much.
    Good Luck,
    Bobby

    Very powerful, straight, and true!! Nice sound. I liked the "no frills" straightforward version too.
