As you all know I'm a big autograph collector. Especially Chicago sports memorabilia.

And as you also know I run a charity event for the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

My friend and I have already started to collect cool memorabilia for next years event.

Today we went to a Indy Racing League event and met a bunch of drivers and got there autographs.

I carried a gas can around with me and had all the drivers sign it, and had a couple of the big names personalize it to the Make-A-Wish Foundation. In all there are over 20 IRL signatures on it, including the Official IZOD Trophy Girl (and I got pictures of them all signing it).

I think there are several Aussies on there! Other than that I had no clue who 20 of those racers were!!!! Don't follow the sport, just got the stuff for my charity event!!!!

The trophy girl was actually really nice. She signed the gas can, then was about to pose for the picture when some scummy old guy came up and talked to her (I think he had a hard on the whole time).

After like 15 minutes, I could tell she wanted the conversation to end, so I kinda politely interrupted so I could take the pic of her.
