Loaded up the wife and went to the races on Sat. .... it was a blast. I've gone to a million NHRA drags back home in Michigan, but had never been to a round/oval track before. We sat about 6' from the track, and you could really feel the action.
The Go-carts where my favorite race. Four wide through the turns? It was insane, and how they where yelling and joking with each other as they fought for position. It was great and I hope they come down again.
There was alot of crashes, spinouts, and a nice oil fire.
Prob. the highlight for me was one of the last races. The one where the girl won. Well she was in second place for half the race, and the guy infont of her kept really ****in' with her. LIke he would hit the brakes, before he gunned it comin' out of the corners. Out of nowhere, his car starts smokin', it got really bad and they gave him the black flag ( which means he's got three laps to get off the track or quit smokin') He either didn't see it, or didn't care. 'Cause he kept on going, the third lap he started to really slow down, but he went around for a fourth, and wouldn't let the girl pass. So she spun him out coming out of turn 3. It was a fine peice of driving on her part. The dude was SOOOO pissed, he threw a little hissy fit in the in-feild, pointing his finger at the girl when she came back around, and yelling at anyone that came near him...LOL
There was no dest. derby 'cause only two cars showed-up. But we didn't care.
Hey waltrip crew....are there any of those private boxes available for races, or I should say how to you get one of those?
