Ellen Frediani snapped this "shot of the year" of Dick Vermeil driving his father Louie's Old #7 down the Silverado Trail Saturday morning August 30th, 2008. Ellen writes, "They had fired it off before he left Pennsylvania, but wanted to run it before the race to work out any kinks. His brother Stan was there to help make any adjustments. Since there's a long straight stretch in front of my mom's house on the Trail, it was the perfect place to knock off the dust. ...Dick had the car shipped to Mom's, and it arrived on Thursday, August 28. Stan stopped by to take a look at it on Friday, and they fired it up Saturday morning. You couldn't wipe the smile off Dick's face if you tried"
