First, congrats on reaching your goal, 130 is awesome! Charlotte tickets are easy to get, Bristol as you can imagine are not. We went to Daytone for the 500 a couple of years ago when it misted the whole day, it was miserable.
Even though I'm in Charlotte we've purchased package deals for BMS through Race Tickets and drove to Knoxville(TN) and joined the tour group there. The package includes two nites hotel, decent seats and bus back and forth from the hotel and a hospitality tent for the Cup race. All the tent provided was shelter from the snow (March '07) and free food. We didn't even go in for the August race. We've done that twice and it's expensive but at least you don't have to deal with the rednecks who consumed too much Bud and yuou get tickets. I have always seen tickets for sale at all tracks, including Bristol, on the day of the race if you are willing to take the chance and pay whatever they are charging.
Let us know if you come to Charlotte. If you can swing it come for the AllStar and stay the week for the 600. There a great dirt late model race during the week.

We went to the 2008 Daytona 500. It was just a wonderful and perfect trip. We're talking about going to another race in 2009, but it will probably be at a different track. I'd like to go to Bristol, Talladega or Phoenix. Our friend would like to go to Charlotte. I would have loved to be at the Homestead race this year.

I can't wait til next season. All the new rides and all. Homestead was great. Cold but nice. I have my tickets for Daytona. We have a time share in Ormand Beach. I'm not sure that it's worth the money. Keep up the good work all.

I wish, but with the economy in the dumper and the outrageous cost of even setting foot in the gate of any Nascar race we simply cannot justify it. We spend many nights at our local track from April til October though.

I'd love to go to a Nascar race , any one would do , starting with Daytona. I have a few problems , I'm waiting for back surgery and I can't walk very far as it is. I don't think my husband is too keen on pushing me in a wheel chair all around a race track. bummer, hopefully after surgery I'll be able to walk longer and stand up straighter. whoever goes ya got to let us know how it was. for sure... Peace

What a way to end the year - talking about Daytona! Not going - will be just getting home from a cruise (last time, we docked on Daytona weekend!) but need to start planning a Daytona party!

Have a wonderful time for all of us who will be in the home stands!

My brother bought a time-share in Daytona a few years ago -- unknowingly he got the week of Daytona 500. Figured he'd never let me use it cuz it was going to be a great money maker to rent it out, but then he lost it in the divorce. She goes down and stays there but ignores all the racing action and activities. WHAT A WASTE! Marci

I hear ya. I would like to go but it is too far. Maybe our family will go to Michigan.
What happened to racing? Before it was just racing. Now it's about popularity. Who gets paid more? I agree with you about that.

I hear ya on getting out of NE in Feb. I lived there for too many winters and know what it's like clear into April.
We haven't decided on Daytona yet, kinda waiting to figure out finances and see what kind of ticket packages and incentives they come up with.
According to everything you hear locally NASCAR won't be fielding 43 'quality' teams next year. I hope that means that guys like Stanton Barrret and others without mega bucks get a chance. Seems that the big team owners got as greedy as the bankers and Wall Street folks that out-spent their resources. It's going to be an interesting few months...

Lucky you! One of these days maybe I can go....their camping prices are outrageous down there. I want to go when I can afford to go to all the races and that may be a while...LOL. I'm not even sure if I am going to any of the races next year. I'm just in a wait and see mode right now.

Okay, I know the season just ended but I'm already excited about next year! I'm going to the Daytona 500 and I can't wait!!! This will be the third time I've been there and nothing else compares to Daytona! Not to mention that getting out of Nebraska during February is a treat itself! Anyone else planning on going?
