hot, hot, hot...........yes, it was slightly warm there today. had to wear long pants, no tank tops, and covered toed shoes, for the garage and pit passes. my stupid camera broke, right when we went into the garage area, just as i was trying to get a picture of ray everham
boris said was on his cell phone, jack rousch was there, still using a cane but getting around great. sterling marlin signed a couple autographs, but i didn't get to him before he went into his hauler. jerry nadeau was in the hospitality tent, for a bit in the morning and john andretti was too. no kyle or richard though <sigh>
i did get jerry's autograph on a hat they gave us. was so cool to see ernie irvan as the grand marshall.........he was always one of my favorites. i was about 100 ft. from the start/finish line. directly across from kyle petty's pit
and, one of the , literally coolest things........air conditioned bathrooms for hopitality guests!!!! lol, gotta say, after the pits and garage tours, i spent an inordinate amount of time changing into my shorts and tank.............heehee.
thank goodness for aquafina.........they are major sponsors and suppliers for nascar, and , man, did we drink the water today.
was a good race, and, actually was happy for tony stewart's win. kinda thought he got somewhat of a raw deal after the incident last week (was majorly misreported).
and, if anyone hasn't been to a race and gets a chance to go......make sure to borrow/rent/get a scanner........the drivers can be so funny to listen to.
kyle had a slow pitstop..........and he was not happy............told one of them that they might get and arca job, lol.
i will admit, if the ticket hadn't been given to us, i would much rather watch a road course race on tv.
i ended up going back to the hospitality tent, with 34 laps to go, just to get out of the sun. watched the end on the tv.
all in all, was a good day........even alone
next race....bristol under the lights!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
