Nascar Race

Mark got free tickets to the Nascar race today so off we went! We've always wanted to go but never have.
We had so much fun! It was so cool to see it in real time. You know the cars go really fast but it's pretty amazing to actually see it!
Here are some pictures from our day.

Here is the entrance to the grandstands:



During the pre-show they did a parachute exhibit. I loved this one because he came down with the American flag:


Jeff Gordon:


Dale Jr:


Ryan Newman:


Matt Kenseth:


Jimmie Johnson's car:


Right before we go green:


Kasey Kahne- pit stop



Matt Kenseth:


The one crash- a single car accident:

The winner- Mark Martin. Greg Biffle and Jimmie Johnson both ran out of gas so Mark was able to win. He's Mark's favorite driver so that was pretty cool!


We had so much fun and weather wise it was great. The sun only shone 1/3 of the time. The other 2/3rds it was cloudy which was wonderful. What a fun unexpected day this was.

I always thought that would be fun to do. I like anyone with Henricks, but Jimmie Johnson in particular.

FINALLY!!!!!! I am able to read your blog. Something is wrong with this computer of Alan's and it kept shutting me off as soon as I opened your site. I think he installed Windows 8 or something and it really is a pain.

What a wonderful time you had at the race and wonderful weather. I have never been to one but I bet it is exhilarating.
