NASCAR



We went to the NASCAR race this weekend. The Subway Fresh Fit 500, a night race held at Phoenix Interntational Raceway.



I even took my beautiful wife, who probably thought that she would never go to a NASCAR race and may never go again :) I think she actually had a great time, I may be turning her into a closet NASCAR fan (although she would never admit it).


If you have never been to a NASCAR race, they are full of spectacles before the race, like the Goodyear Blimp, Parachute Jumpers, Air Force jet fly-overs, and of course the Whiskey Tango's....
