Kind of a Christmas present to yourself. Must have been a blast!

That's cool you saw the track lights, Annalee!
We went this past Saturday night. Big mistake! Loooooong line to enter the track after paying for tickets. I almost thought the 3 millions lights they advertised were going to be all red tail-lights! LOL
But, it was worth the wait. They seem to add more lights every year and the route you drive changes every year, too. Had us going counterclockwise around the track this time.
I'd say my favorite part was driving under the grandstands for the first time. Pretty neat!

Do you go every year?.....this was my first year....I DROVE....Good news, they didn't have to replace any of the safer barrier's...., no pit road incidents, almost thru something at the car in front of us. (next year I must bring a helmet) :lol: :lol: ;) ...they didn't maintain their speed.... :x

Our wait was not to long...I think it is better to go during the week.....I like in front of the grandstands too!! The speedway's frontstretch grandstands display had 200,000 linear feet of lights, all synchronized to music. Pretty neat!! :D

Re: Merry Christmas from Miles, Charlotte and Bristol...

I didn't go the first year they did the lights, but I have been the past four years.
Poor me, I'm always the driver. But that's OK, I can still see everything.
Yes, I'd MUCH rather go during the week, but I had family in town that had never seen it. It was now or never. LOL
Actually, the part I liked was driving UNDER the grandstands---near the end. But the trackside part synchronized to music is pretty neat, too.
I'd like to know how much cash the track pulls in every holiday season. At $15 to $20 per car, they must rake in a ton of money.

They are probably trying to recoup from the empty sets at the races......;-(

True. Maybe they'd be better off running the Christmas lights year-round! ;)
