I am about to reveal what to some may appear to be a deep, dark secret of mine...
I am part of the Nascar Nation, baby! I went to my first race yesterday in Dover Delaware with my friend, Michelle. It took us forever to get there (and longer to get home it seemed) but it was awesome! It's great to watch on tv but being there live is really an experience. It was so cool to see the paratrooper fly in with a flag, the Blue Angels flying over, the cars all lined up. We were right by the start/finish line in great seats (many thanks to United Electric!) I missed Jeff Gordon crashing because the heat got to me early on but Michelle was there to relish it. I was happy to keep an eye on my boy, Dale Jr, even though he didn't have a great day. I was also happy to see Mark Martin moving up in the end and finally Greg Biffle win. It was so cool!
Now I am trying to recover and rehydrate! But it was all well worth it.
