NASCAR? No way!
Friday, April 11, 2008
Well, I did what I thought I'd never do: go to a real NASCAR event. My brother invited my dad, Joe, and myself to the Bashas' 200 race, which was part of an entire weekend of different races. The feeling I got when I walked up the steps to see dozens of cars on their practice runs was amazing. Even more amazing was walking along the fence and feeling my whole body tremble when the pace car jetted into the pits and every massive engine exploded instantly to gain speed.
