Glad you had a good time in spite of the cool weather and the "parade without clowns and balloons."
You can always come down here to Charlotte for the May race weeks. (ALWAYS warm) Or join 120000 of your closest friends in Bristol in August (always HOT)

Amanda thanks for your recap of the race. Glad you enjoyed it even with the wind. Yep the first part was boring. Lots of them ran out of gas because of that last wreck. Hope you do get the chance to go to another race. Being there has to be awesome

Hey there Nascar fans!

Back from Dega! Race was good, honestly, a little boring for the first 160 of 188 laps, not too much happening, mostly running single file. 2 big crashes (Ryan Newman squished my bf's driver Harvick). Then the "big one" right at the last lap, cars everywhere!!! I was cheering for Kenseth, too bad he ran out of gas with the red flag... He was having such a good race until then. Our seats were great (Moss Thornton Tower), my only complaint was that there was a radio tower behind us that was blocking the sun, so when the wind blew, wow, was it ever chilly!!! I will definately do another race, but maybe sometime in the summer with warmer weather and within driving distance of home.

I'm so jealous of you. I won a trip to the second (I think) race at Texas Motor Speedway, but that's the only race I've ever been able to go to. (First husband didn't live long enough to go to another race with me and second husband just really doesn't like NASCAR unless Juan Montoya is leading the race.) I'd really love to watch a race at Daytona or Talladega one day....

There was much rejoicing!
