Lets go racin' boys

Last weekend, Brad and I headed to Dover, Delaware to attend a Sprint Cup Nascar Race (the Camping World 400 to be exact). Brad was SUPER excited and my excitement could only increase as we got closer, despite the fact that I was tired and stressed and a reluctant participant in the whole thing! It was a fun race, we got really dirty from sitting in the front row and we stopped at Bob Evan's for dinner on the way home after making it home in record post-race traffic time. What's there not to love?
The Monster Mile

Brad and his favorite driver, Denny Hamlin
My favorite driver, Tony Stewart - it's the last year that he is with Home Depot, which makes me very sad :(
in front of David Ragan's #6 Ford
Brad was very excited about the U.S. Customs and Border Patrol car that is driven in the Nationwide Series (think of it as the AAA league of NASCAR)

the in field at Dover... full of RV's and haulers and crazy fans
turn 1 view from our seats

team haulers - they use them to transport the cars (both the main and backup) and all the pit equipment and everything you need to run a race. Pretty cool.
Denny takes a lap during driver introductions
Tony, as usual, not so excited to be doing his fan lap
ready for the race!
lovin' every minute of it
here they come!
