They're racing at the Atlanta Motor Speedway this weekend and R.O. can't make it. I know this strip I came up with after a visit to the Daytona Motor Speedway in Florida can't make up for it, but it's a start. If you are racing this weekend, remember poor R.O. as he watches the race at home.
One of my earliest attempts at R.O. and Honey and their family dog, an idea I quickly jetisoned because we did not actually have a dog and I decided to stick as close to reality as possible. The slapstick is tough to do in a single panel format for me. I thought this was cute though. And look at how much R.O. has changed since these early days.
The one thing about this one that doesn't hold up to me is all the smoke. It never jelled for me. I guess drawing smoke just isn't my thing.
