And then, on to Vegas for an experience that was loud, fast and totally exciting! We were among the rednecks of the rednecks!
It was a lot of fun; amazing weather, jaw-dropping and ear-burning sites and sounds of white-trash and a surprisingly fun event to watch.
This was our first time at a NASCAR race, or any professional race of this caliber, but Todd and Lisa are seasoned veterans. They graciously showed us the ropes! They taught us how to maneuver the pre-entertainment (aka people watching), how to breathe without inhaling secondhand smoke and how to communicate with drunk spectators.
We have to admit, watching cars go around in a circle sounds rather boring on most occasions, but when you're surrounded by 200,000+ drunk, screaming racists, it's actually quite entertaining! The thunderous sound that 40+ race cars make when they go by at 190 mph is pretty impressive.
For us...this was an experience we will not forget!! We had a blast! However, next time we'll watch from the smokeless comforts of our living room.
But, another weekend trip with Todd and Lisa is a definite-must on our to-do list!!! Thanks guys...=)
And, finally...for my friends and former-coworkers at 3M...
