  This will wear you out!
Get up at 4AM...Why? Because your buddy tells you he's picking you up at 4:30. You call him at 4:35 and hear in his voice that you just woke him up. I just got out of the shower, I'll be there in 15 minutes. Yeah, sure you will.

I should have known better, I've known this buddy of mine for about 15 years now and he's never been on time for anything! He's one of those people that you have lie to to get him somewhere on time. You know the type...You're either one of those types, or your married to one of those types!

It was for the ride to Dover on Sunday morning. Dover is about 3 and a half hours away. The gates opened at something like 8:30 and the plan was to get there early so we could get a good parking spot. You know, easy in and out...maybe get home at a reasonable time...

Instead, we got there an hour and a half AFTER the lots opened...and we parked here!


That little thing in the background? That's the race track. I think I get closer to it when I drive on the Freeway on my way to Jersey!





But the seats were good once we got there!!!













That makes four tracks I've seen a NASCAR race at now. The first was Phoenix and unfortunately, I didn't own a digital back then. I went to Phoenix International Raceway (PIR) three different times. It's not my favorite track. Parking isn't bad and in and out isn't bad...but the racing is kinda boring...PIR is flat, relatively speaking and the cars only race around at about 100 to 115 MPH...and in NASCAR, that's slow. My second track was Richmond, VA. Great race! Night racing is cool. Richmond is a 3/4 mile track and man, the cars fly! The next track I've been to is Charlotte, NC. Charlotte Motor Speedway is one badass track! 200 MPH down the back stretch! Half the race in the daytime, the other half at night! Great parking, great seats...

I'm gonna try to find a video hosting site, then I'm gonna put the starting laps up from Charlotte, Richmond and Dover. 3 short videos, taken with my little Sony Cybershot camera...that way you can see what I see on the first lap every time...you tell me which one is better...
