I had a Hot pass but not a Media Sticker and I tried my damnest to sweet talk the girl at the gate to let me into the Media Center..but no go. Would have been nice to say hello
to Mr. Poole and bother him while he worked...LOL. The best I could do was press my nose up against the glass of his work room with rest of us clowns with hot passes who really have no business in the garage at all.
Perhaps if he saw you, he'll write an article about it? Nice pictures though and great to get that up close experience. I have only been on pit road a couple of times but never in the garage area. Lucky Dude!
