    That's right. I finally get to go watch NASCAR live. I've been a fan for several years and this will be the first time to see it live. The way it was intended. I'm not rubbin' it in, I'm just excited. And to watch it at Indianapolis will be a treat. Just wanted to share that with ya'll. Thanks for your time.:big_smile:

    Tony, If I had another ticket, You would be more than welcome. A buddy of mine had an extra ticket and gave it to me. Staying in a hotel that has already been paid for. And if that isn't enough, Our meals are paid for while we are there. The only thing I have to do is split gas money between me and 3 other guys. I couldn't say no.:big_smile:

    Thanks everyone. I'm looking forward to it. I wish there was a way to talk to some of the Indiana BOC members while I am there.

    Lyle I had tickets in the 3dr turn terrace! We got to see maybe 100 yards of the track and they are going so fast I was hard to tell what car I was seeing.the race was great and the party is worth the poor seats I had.You will have a great time. One tip park close to your seats as you can. the place is really,really big and its a drag to have to walk from one end of the track to the other.Ohh yeah my wife just told me thats its hard to see colors when everything is tinted beer bottle brown.Drive safee and bring back stories!! smokey

    i am jealous, Kelly...enjoy it.
    i have been to a few races, but not in several years.
    the worst seats i had were worth every penny.

    I live and hour and a half from the track and have seen both open wheel and nascar races. The traffic is crazy and the crowds are hugh. I have not been for a couple years because of the heat but it is a great time. If you are sitting near the track take ear plugs. The stock cars are louder than Indy cars. Have fun, it is something you will remember the rest of your life.
    Have fun and be careful.
