The Sonoma Race was SO much fun! I sat in Turn 7, have been for the last 4 years. We camp at the track and it's a blast.

Can't believe Harvick taking out all those guys in front of him. It's OK, I still love him, and he got himself back into the top 12 at NH.

I couldn't believe it partly because during the previous caution, I made a comment to my buddies that for once my driver was ahead of theirs, #48 and #2. One of them said, I'm not worried, Harvick's gonna spin out...UNBELIEVABLE!!! He jinxed it!

I'm looking forward to next year. We go to the Vegas Race and Sonoma race every year, but for 2009, we're planning on adding Talladega to the list.

YAY!!!

It was amazing! We were sitting right behind Dave Blaney's pit (#22). We arrive and found a family friend walk right in front of us! We talked for a while and his son (we forgot) is the rear tire changer for Dave Blaney! So, he was able to get me his autograph! Mom got Aj A (can't spell his last name) #84 autograph. Wasn't too smokey though, suprisingly.

Wow I am like so jealous. We went to years ago. My current pic is taken at turn 9 with my hubby.
Was it real smokey out there. It is here in Sac this morning.
Maybe next year.

In a prebariatric program hoping to get approval for weight loss surgery.

Be Blessed!

Lucky you, going to Sonoma! I went last year but we couldn't go this year due to a rescheduling of a grad thing, wahhhhh. I'm a #26 fan, he kicks butt at this track. Have a blast!

Ladies, if I don't get Jr's autograph, I will curl up into a ball for the rest of my life on this earth. Told the husband who is not a "fan" of Nascar I'd get him Stewarts autograph. It's the only driver he shows an actual interest in lol.
Because we bought a package deal with seats (we got to choose where we wanted to sit), pit passes, tickets to every event that weekend, and get to go up front to take pix for driver introductions. I'm so excited! 9 more days!

LOL - Horn?? Who needs a horn? I'm sure I could manage a "HONK HONK!" loud enough. Unless, like you said, I'd catch up to Jr, and then I'd just have to sneak up on him and scoop him up on my lap! emoticon

Actually I don't know for sure, but the other times I went when I was still walking that far, I didn't see any back there. I would think they would ban them for safety reasons too....and that would be hard to fight...LOL. My horn is not loud enough to warn anyone I'm behind them...but it is fast enough to outrun some of the people back there if I decided to put it in high gear to chase down Jeff, Jr or Tony....LOL. Maybe they have that in mind too! LOL.

What? You can't go in the pits because you have a scooter? That screams discrimination!!

:) Kidding - I realize they probably consider that a hazard or something. .... but still.. :P

Have fun at Infinion...er.... Sears Point!

Wow! I have had pit tours before but never got to stay for the driver introductions. I always wondered how people got to do that. Guess because my pit tours were free. I think there is one you can actually buy at LMS, but I just never have spent the money. I'm not sure they will let you in the pits with a scooter and that is the only way I can travel now.

I know you will have a great time!

Ohhh yeah. They have the big screens up all over now. We were there a few years ago when they had it. Lol, I know...I'm just excited to go into the pits and we get to go up front for driver introductions.

We were in the top row of the section we sat in last time. You could see the whooole thing, minus one little part of a turn.
We are gonna stay at Travis AFB. It's not too far from the track and you can't beat the price! $43/night for a 2 bedroom suite! It's even less with just my mom and I.

I know they have changed the track a lot since we were there last. At the start/finish where we used to sit they have a huge screen so you can see the race on that. What's fun is where the cars go behind the stands and have that sharp curve (most of the passing is there).

I know! To me 49ers stadium will always be Candlestick Park and Infineon will ALWAYS be Sears Point.
Don't know how much time we will have to visit. We are staying at Travis AFB, so I'm hoping we'll have some time.

Can you really see the whole track on a road course? That surprises me, I figured you could only see them as they pass in front of the stands. That is good to know if I ever make it to California. I love the road coarses...hope you have a great time. Are you camping or have a hotel?

We used to go every year when we lived in California. It will always be Sears Point to me. LOL

Are you visiting any wineries while there?

Less than 2 weeks to go! We (my mom and I) have weekend tickets, pit passes, and second row seats near the start/finish line! We wanted to be right down by the cars as opposed to our seats we had last time. We were up and could see most of the track except for like turn 7. But, this makes it nicer esp since my mom is disabled and can't move around a whole lot!
Anyone else going to be joining us???
