Many people wouldn't have believed it if I told them, so I have pictures to prove it! I went to NASCAR in Las Vegas with Garrett and Grayson on Saturday. (Long story, short--John was planning on taking them but had potential clients flying in from California to meet with him Saturday afternoon). I say, serendipity...
There were AT LEAST 200,000 people--who knew?! I've GOT to get a NASCAR jacket and cuter ear plugs when I go again.
The boys wanted tickets on the front row and wanted to get there an hour before the race began. We watched the Sam's Town 300, consisting of 300 miles or 200 laps around the track. It took about 2-1/2 hours to complete this race (including driving slows laps while they took care of the crashes--very exciting).
Since we were sitting at the Start/Finish line, we saw the many flags signaling different messages to the cars. The green flag of course is "GO" and I think I will even "GO" to another NASCAR race. I thoroughly enjoyed myself!
