Let’s say that Joe Gibbs Racing has the #20 show car at my local Home Depot. I am there buying some lumber for a project and stop to get Joey Logano’s autograph on a choice piece of red oak, which is Home Depot’s premium lumber. Joey turns to me and says, “We have been thinking about taping into the woodworking community more directly. What would you suggest?” I say, “Well, I have this idea…”
While I was watching the Phoenix race this past Sunday, I saw repeated ads for Toyota Racing’s site and their invitation to design your own race car. So, I did. I wonder how much it would actually cost to sponsor this car? Even for just a few races?
Also on Sunday – just about the second caution flag, the 10,000th visitor stopped by my blog, a minor milestone. The counter at the bottom of my site measures each visitor one time. Subsequent visits to my blog are not counted. So, since October, 2009, I have had more than 10,000 people (or IP addresses really) stop by woodfever.net.
