The race was AWESOME and our seats were perfect. We could see all the pits and we were very close to the start finish line. 3 rows up from the track. The sound was amazing ! The race was amazing ! I told Mark and Tom that since it had been a while since I had actually been to a race I have a whole new respect for all those guys who race those cars and go as fast as they do. The last time I saw a race we sat up pretty high so I didn't really get the full effects of being so close to all the action . There are no whimps in NASCAR.. They are real men ! I just kept hoping no one would wreck by us . How more drivers don't get seriously hurt or die is a tribute to NASCAR for all the safety rules they have in place.
Shiprek, Joey boy was THE MAN all day long !! I bought Mark a Harvick shirt and I bought one for Tom since they both like and follow him. I root for Chase but every lap I was screaming for Logano. He had the race won from the very beginning it seemed. Good pit crew and a great car.
We got home around 1:00 in the morning. We were both tired but it was SO worth the trip. Mark had been so upset when they didn't get the race in on that Sunday since he had spent so much money for the tickets and he was on vacation so he was really depressed. I talked him into going back and when he said he didn't have the money to go again ( Turnpike tolls and all) I told him I would go with him and I'd pay for all that if he would take me with him. Coming home I said to him, " Mark aren't you glad you listened to your mother ??? LOL !! " He said , " Yes mom !" I said " Can you just imagine if you hadn't gone back and saw that the race was on TV ( no rain ) how he would have felt !" He told me thanks for talking him into going. Did my heart good to make him happy and I got to go also Also makes you feel good that even though your "kids " are 45 yrs old and hey listen to you it makes you feel like they value your opinion and still listen to their mothers. LOL !
