I Know They Only Turn Left........

I just love Nascar, simply stated. I have to admit I fall asleep through alot of races, especially the big tracks where they only race single file. I've been to 4 races and its alot different in person. Those 4 hours go by so fast that you can't believe the race is over. The sound of the cars going by, awesome! Nobody sits down when the race starts, its a one of kind experience to actually be at a race. My husband and I were able to go down on the track and stand at the finish line. My husband was never the shy type, and shocker (my favorite is Jeff Gordon) yeah, I know, boo, no one likes him, even though he has more fans than most.
My husband went to his pit crew and asked them if I could have something from his car, I got a lug nut, cool!, still have it. My husbands favorite at the time was Dale Jarrett, he got some lug nuts off of his car.
Its hard watching the race alone at home now, since my husband died its not the same but I still love it.
I'm becoming a big Dale jr. fan, I never was crazy about him only because it seemed like everyone expected him to be his dad after his father accident. Not to mention his fans all hated Jeff Gordon, lol. So imagine how funny I thought it was when he joined Rick Hendrick's team. Now that he's out of his fathers big shadow, in my eyes, I actually like to watch him race and he's become my second favorite.
He really wants to win and gets so frustrated when they keep changing the rules.
I wish they would just go back to simple racing, its getting to be to political, taking the fun out of it. I don't want anyone to get hurt, but let the guys race!!!!

The one thing about Dale Jr. (I am a Jr. fan) is that he will never be like his father. His father was the greatest, he didn't fear anything. As far as tracks go I think the best track to go to is Bristol, I use to go to Darlington every year when I lived in South Carolina.

Your right he isn't like his father, but at the time thats all it was about. I'm glad its more about him now and not always talking about how he's like his dad. I was a Dale Sr. fan, but they put way too much on Jr. We were at the Pepsi 400 when Jr. won the race after his dad died. First race I went to. I'm a big Dale Jr. fan now, but I will always be a Gordon fan also :) I like Bristol too, never been there, thats got to be a fun place to be at. I'm dreading Nascar being over soon, I'll have to go back to watching football. Thanks for reading and commenting.

In order to go to Bristol you have to buy tickets a year in advance they sell out each year. But with Nascar coming to an end it is a bit said but I am hoping for Edwards to take the championship over Stewart. Then on to watch football good thing my team is still undefeated.

Hope they don't just turn left at Sonoma and Watkins Glen.....lol<br />

I became a NASCAR fan in the late sixties. Back then most of them didn't have paid pit crews and had to find help at the local tracks. So much different back then

Great short track race at Martinsville, and my power goes out for 6hrs! I was recording it and the race was one of the best, Dale Jr. really racing like crazy, and I don't even get to see the whole race!.<br />
Go figure, I love short track racing! More exciting, the season is almost over and I probably missed the best race yet.
