Yesterday I got to experience my first NASCAR race. I really wasn't sure what to expect, but it was every bit as entertaining as I thought it might be.  RT was co-sponsoring a car, so a group of people Robby works with all got to go to the race.  We had pit passes which got us up-close and personal.  We got to tour the hauler, see the final tweaks being made to the cars before the race, meet the driver, and learn all about the behind-the-scenes stuff that goes on.  It really was interesting to learn about something I knew very little about.  Seeing and hearing the cars up close was the coolest part and I couldn't get over how LOUD they were.

It was a very hot day, but we had a few rain showers that cooled things off.  We spent the rest of the day hanging out in the in-field waiting for the race to begin and thankfully there was a big RV complete with air conditioning and a bathroom.  When it was time for the race to start we stayed on top of the RV to get a good view.  Robby and a few of the others had passes to stay in the pits while the race was going on so they spent some time there, too.  It was a really fun and interesting experience and I'm so happy we got to go.
