Ike is smiling

As we idled in to our next backwater, Mike Iaconelli came blasting out with a head of steam.

 

He slowed to a quick idle as he approached us, shot us a grin that could light up all of Shreveport, then took off again after he passed us.

 

He was second here in 2009 and has a bunch of runner up finishes in the past year -- he may be due.
