I grew up watching it on TV with my dad and went to local races in Nashville at the Fairgrounds speedway, so I knew about the sport.
I of course had to bring my camera with multiple lenses to get some pictures. Unfortunately, there were so many people that I had a hard time changing lenses in the crowd, and also getting good pictures without someone’s head in the way! 😦
I had a blast. There are some hardcore NASCAR fans out there. We saw some cool wrecks, especially the one between Carl Edwards & Brad Keselowski (read about it HERE). Scary, but cool! We had awesome seats and I had such a great time. It’s fun to do things out of my normal element.
I’m a Jeff Gordon fan, so Joshua bought me a #24 camo hat so I’d blend in. We tailgated beforehand, which was fun too. The people tailgating were quite entertaining with their beer pong and RVs.
It was a great trip. Short & sweet. But I’m so exhausted.
