I'm not the biggest NASCAR fan, but I do like it. I tend to watch the Nextel races when they're on and I appreciate the talent of the drivers. I have the chance to go to the races this weekend with some friends. I am looking forward to it.

Wife has been there. She says it feels kinda small. Suites are nice but don't wear jeans if you are in a suite. She was wearing $175(don't ask)jeans and got turned away. Bad traffic!

Hmmm. I thought cutoffs and no shirt was the general attire for all races! Kidding of course. I have no idea what our seat situation is. I'll have to ask. $175 jeans! Sorry, I wasn't supposed to ask.

If you are not in a luxury suite, I go for shirtless.

You can't wear jeans in the suites. No matter how much they cost. The days of $175 jeans are over at our place!

I've been near it several times. Mainly to Route 66 (same parking lot) and the dirt oval (Same parking lot).
I've just never been inside that track. Had tickets for the 1st race there and something came up.
Take some pics from inside would ya, I need some motivation...;)

From my experience in a suite in Vegas, I say go for the regular seats. You can't smell the rubber burning or hear the cars in the suite. Of course you get free beer, which is good...but at most tracks you can bring your own. Love that.

Funny, but using the word "clunk" to describe a shotgun, isn't intimidating whatsoever....

My 870 express is clunky. Even though I oil. It seems to be kinda loose. Jams sometimes.
