My first NASCAR Race

Last Friday I drove to Charlotte and went to the NASCAR Nationwide Series race with my sister and brother in-law. I got the tickets through work so we were able to go to the pit to see the cars and garages before the race began.

I also had no idea how loud races are! (You may notice on the last picture we sported ear plugs as necklaces.) It was such a cool experience to wander the pit and see all the behind-the-scene work that goes into every race. I wouldn’t go so far as to say I’ve become a NASCAR fan, but I certainly have a stronger appreciation for the sport. :)

Are you a NASCAR fan? Have you ever been to a race?

  • I’ve never been to a race but the BF test drove one of the cars with his dad before! It was the BF’s present and they got to drive for around 30 minutes. He said it was a lot of fun

  • I used to watch the races every single week while I was married and was a big fan before my divorce. I still follow it and I follow Jeff Gordon and Jimmy Johnson on Twitter, lol. I have never been, but we went to Daytona for a tour while we were on our honeymoon. I would like to go just once to a race. My aunt and uncle are huge fans…go to Daytona every year and about 6 or 7 others (they’re retired and drive their motorhome from race to race).
