Spent two days in the cold drizzle, but it was worth it.






We were in the perfect place for restarts. They punched it right in front of me.

Considering they are turning 9,500 RPM you have to expect them to be noisy. JB

I got to where I could tell when a Hendrick-tuned car went by. They have a slightly higher pitch than most other cars. The Dodge cars had the deepest pitch.
Didn't matter who went by, you could feel the noise deep in your chest.

Finally could see the vids, nice.

Wouldn't it be nice if they had that kind of technology in the old NASCAR days?

Think of the videos guys could've gotten back then.

They have a pricing structure that isn't friendly to go to just one race, especially if the one race you want to see is the Sprint Cup race.

True story here, we bought the tickets several weeks in advance, then a few days before we go, my brother-in-law was given better tickets by a customer of his that couldn't go. Corner 4 seats for back stretch price. We didn't bother trying to scalp the ones we had because of the weather.

You have no idea how much fun the infield is. It is a never ending party. Six of us took 24 cases of bud bud lt last year and ran out. That was thursday to monday morning.
