Okay..so I hated the fact that Jimmie Johnson won..but holy crap I love going to the races. It has been a few years since my last one and I realized yesterday how much I missed going.

The smell of the exhaust and the burning rubber...the deafening roar of 43 high power engines ripping around the track at 180 miles per hour...The force of the wind they create as they blow past you. The excitement of watching a wreck unfold..or a pass for the lead take place in front of you. Four wide racing in a corner banked at 40 degrees...

Oh yes..I had fun. It was freezing at almost 40 degrees...and I couldn't feel my hands or feet afterwards. But fun.

Got a Newman Transformers shirt and a little Aflac racing duck and a whole bunch of free nascar stuff from the trailers. Beat my father at whack-a-mole. Got to see the Autobots and Decepticons go head to head..and the Autobots sadly fall behind in the end. Got to cheer on Tony and Newman. And returned home at 2AM in the morning after dealing with an hour of traffic.

I love night races. It was my first time going to the Charlotte track and it was a lot better then I expected. Will totally go again.
