He is good at doing burn outs for sure. I remember going to our first race in Rockingham 9 years ago and it took us 2 hours to get out of the parking lot, LOL. Now, we bring our RV, camp there and leave first thing on Monday morning when there is no traffic and it goes well.

I love the road races. I think they are amazing in all the different turns, curves and tightness of the track. I am thinking I may be going to the Labor Day Race at AMS - just depends on how much money I spend on vacation this week. AMS is a great track, but to get out of there and back towards the interstate is a nightmare. A 45 minute drive to the track took us 5 hours to get home. But it was worth it :) I wish I had a crystal ball to see if Kyle would win the race so I can see him do a burnout in person - that would be so worth the ticket price and the drive :)

They need a race in Canada, but I believe it would have to be an oval racetrack and Sprint to come so that more Canadians could go. I myself am not fussy on road races. I went to Montreal (2 hours away from where I live), but it wasn't that interesting and it definitely was not organized as well as the races in USA. Hopefully, they learned and got it better organized, but we never went back.

A late welcome to Estelle. I just started back to work as a teacher last week so I'm a little behind. I went to Talladega 14 years ago for the fall race. It was hard to see but we were down low. We stayed in Douglasville GA and went into Atlanta at night.
I live near the Martinsville Speedway and I think Talladega is the only one in a smaller town !
I watched the Montreal race yesterday and it makes me sad to think they will take that race away. It's obvious that Canadians are very big NASCAR fans. I have the same opinion as my driver, Robby Gordon, on that. Montreal is a wonderful location for a race and they need a Cup race there !

Deb, we have never been to Dega yet and we are so looking forward to it. I can't remember where are seats are, but they are above the 30th row, hee hee, close to the pit entrance. We were at the Atlanta racetrack one year and really enjoyed that one too. We've done quite a few tracks up to now and have enjoyed each one in their own way. Looking forward to the Dega one because the cars have to stay in packs and it's always be a dream of my husband's to go there emoticon

Estelle - have you ever been to 'Dega? We went for Hallowdega last year - it was amazing!!! I did learn one thing though - get seats higher up LOL. We were right on the start/finish line about five rows up, but the cars hugged the wall so much we couldn't see them until they got into the corner. And then in a blink they were gone. But OMG - I loved it. The speed, the sound, everything about it. Contemplating going back this year, but may hold off and go to Daytona in February for the 500. That is right after my 50th birthday so I told my hubby that would be a great present for me. We live in Georgia not too far from Atlanta Motor Speedway (which is where I saw my first race) and the funny thing was, it took us longer to go 30 miles (5 hours) than it did for us to drive to home from Talledega (4 hours - and probably would have been quicker than that but there was a wreck). Hope you have an awesome time!

I'll jump in here and say hello too. Too bad you missed the race today. What a surprise ending! You'll have to check it out online.
And congrats on making goal. I made my goal the first week of July, but since then I've continued to lose a couple of more pounds. I'm trying to figure out how to maintain and not keep losing but I have no real appetite now. If you've found the real secret to staying where you want to be please let me know. I don't want to stop eating right, and I don't want to exercise less. Thanks!

WOW, I found this team on another members Sparkpage and I couldn't resist than to join. Me and my husband are big Nascar fans. We go to one race every year. Coming from Canada and the long trips, we can't do more. This October we are going to Talladega and we can't wait, woohoo. My driver is Carl Edwards and my husband's is Clint Bowyer!!!!

I lost 28 lbs. as of November 2010 while being on another site. Reached goal and am now maintaining. I still track, exercise and need/give support which is the secret to my new healthy lifestyle.

Have a great Monday everyone!!!!

Estelle
