I can't wait. We both wanted to take a vacation. I wanted to go to a race, she wanted to go to Fla. to visit her sister. So we both win. I am not sure how the in-laws will like it. Her sister is a pretty big sports fan, her brother in law not so much, but says he's always wanted to check it out living so close to Daytona. Neither has ever watched a race, so their first ever time even watching a race and they will be doing so live. Of all races to lose their NASCAR virginity it's the biggest race of the year, the biggest race in motorsports, it's the Great American Race. I'm kind of jealous of them lol.
I kinda thought the way you did too AZK8ster, I wanted the woman to enjoy racing too, because it means so much to me. I took her to her first race at Pocono. She really didn't seem to be having much fun during the pre race stuff. The walking around, going up and down pit road, the shopping. I felt kind of bad. There was a ray of hope though once the race started and the cars got up to speed. The first lap when the 43 cars went roaring by at full speed, she turned to me w/ excitement in her eyes and said "Wow I have to admit that was pretty awesome!!!!". Sadly a short while later that thing that was pretty awesome although a gazillion times louder than it is when you watch on t.v. had the same effect as it would if she were watching on t.v. There we were in the grandstands of Pocono raceway, The sun beating down on us, Thousands of screaming fans, the cars roaring by us so loud you couldn't hear a thing, the grandstands vibrating and shaking w/ each pass of the cars, and there sat Loretta fast asleep lol. Not sure how she did it, but she did. So I thought I could bring her to the dark side, but her resistance is strong lol
"He makes me look thinner" Tony on why he picked Ryan to be his team mate. bet he's gonna enjoy his fair share of Krissie's cookies every weekend lol
