Long Day at The Track

Just got back to the hotel from being at the track all day. I've got lots of pictures, but no way to upload them from here so I'll do that when I get home.

We got to the track just as Cup practice was going on, nothing eventful to report there. We then walked around for cruising the various souvenir trailers and such. Everything that was Dale Jr (except Elvis, 57 Chev, and Die-cast) was 50% off, so I got two shirts for my kids and a hat for me for just $18.00.

The Busch race today was kind of boring. The field got really strung out after the last caution and it turned into a bit of a fuel battle in the end. Mark Martin ran out of gas as he was crossing the start/finish line for the last lap and blew a top 5 finish. Denny Hamlin and Matt Kenseth ran strong for the lead during the race but after the last round of pit stops Denny just ran away from the field. Going into turn 3 on the last lap Denny came over the radio and said that he ran out of gas to which the reply (after a bit of a pause) was "Tell me you're kidding".

Smash Mouth performed after the race tonight too. It was a good concert, considering it rained on and off during it. More of a light drizzle, but still rain. I hope it either pours tonight or holds off until the race is complete tomorrow, I don't want to have to stay another night - I can't afford it.

More tomorrow, I'm going to bed as I think I'm going to have a long day tomorrow.

PS - Jr reported that his car was loose during Happy Hour and was reluctant to do any changes as it might make the car too tight for tomorrow.
