It's a little on the chilly side this morning but wanted to get this up in case people want to take advantage of 70 and sunny later today.
Unlike its more famous sibling in the same city, this tri-oval track is actually named after the city it's in instead of the large city next door.

Grab a tag and get a trip to Bass Pro Shop. That's tempting.

Who am I kidding? I've got a honey-do list to catch up on.

Just tell Mrs Donkeys that she can go shopping for the day. Though I doubt you would beat someone coming from Huntersville.

No chance of me getting it. MrsDonkeys reminded me that number one hack monkey has training today at 1400.

Sent from the voices in my head and transcribed by their drinking buddy.

Nice! Now see if you can continue the streak of tag shots within a mile of my house and I will be able to keep playing without waiting for parts to come in the mail.

Hey thats cool. Carter and I got to tour Stuart/Haas racing a while back. Bought a LU5 Crossfire injected small block off craigslist and it ended up being the car chief for Danika Patrick. Picked it up at their shop one evening and was given a cool look around to most of it anyway. Wasn't allowed is a few places for reasons I'm sure you know.

I am surprised it is still sitting.

I have TAGGED my work before also but it isn't as cool as a race shop.

Got off work and came home, ate with the kids and then went to see Skyfall at the movies. Late lunch and took some cold meds and went to bed. Slept most of the afternoon and evening. Going back to bed in a few. I have another 24hr shift starting at 7:45am.

Happy Veterans Day to all that have served.

Now this takes it up north to Mooresville, which is some good riding. Tempting indeed...

If he is like the rest of us, the workers behind the scenes that do all the work and get no perks for it, he won't get the freebe tickets.

I could scape up some allstar tickets on the free deal next year. Maybe even some truck race tickets.

Yea, it sucks I got spoiled one of my good friends and her husband both worked for NASCAR back in the day.
She did the PR side at the races, so she basically met famous people, gave them passes and tours of all the pit areas etc. I forget exactly what he did.
But both of them traveled to every race.
She could hook me up with at least 1 usually up to 4 good seats and pit passes to any race I wanted to catch. It was awesome.
But after they had a kid, they both quit to stop traveling. Bums.


That said, I'd be all about taking the kid to the all star race or a truck race next year. Just so she can see one. I still maintain even if you don't like racing everyone should go to at least one. :)
