What an awesome weekend!

Headed back down to the Charlotte area last Thursday for more racing and golf.

The first thing we did when we got there was take a trip out to Joe Gibbs Racing. The friends I was staying with know some people and we had our very own personal tour of the facility. Some pretty cool stuff to see here. We were taken around the entire facility, but there was a sign posted above the entry way into the fabrication area that said no pictures beyond this point. All I can show is the view from the top

Friday morning we played golf. Cabarrus Country Club, located in Concord, NC, is a very private club. I can’t remember the last time I played golf on a course that I didn’t have to wait on the group in front of me at least a few times during a round. Cabarrus limits the amount of rounds that are played and I’m here to tell you this place was in GREAT Shape!

After we finished playing golf on Friday we went out to a couple more race shops. Last week I told you that we had visited DEI and at that time I had been impressed. Well, not anymore! After visiting a couple other race shops, I've come to the conclusion that DEI is hiding something. DEI is the only race shop I visited while I was down in the Charlotte area that DIDN'T let you see how they build cars. I was told that this is because of the late Dale Earnhardt's widow, Theresa. She's the controlling influence around there and what she says goes.

Anyway, the first shop was Roush Racing Remember, there's no money in racing people! This place was really cool. It had some awesome displays in what can only be called a museum. Stuff like this!


And this is some of the stuff I did before racing even started! I'll post another one dealing strictly with the 600 a little later.
