They did it!!!!! They gave us our Daytona 500!!! It was awesome. I would have liked to see a little more side by side racing but for the most part I think all the drivers were playing it kind of safe. Well everyone except for Juan Pablo Montoya (what the f#$k was he thinking?) That guy has now officially wrecked everything.
Everyone had a great time (even the little woman) I think her brother in law might be hooked. I have created another NASHOLE HA HA HA!!!! Her sister and brother in law both had to work early this a.m. so when Juan and the jet dryer got into their little dust up we decided to leave. We all really thought that was going to be the end of the race. How amazing was that? I have never seen anything like that watching NASCAR, yet another first in my life lol. Thankfully a good friend of mine from work was able to stay awake and send me text updates for the rest of the race.
It was a bit of a letdown to see Ryan spin (he did it right in front of us, and to sit there the rest of the night and have his skid marks as a reminder kind of sucked ha ha) but I enjoyed watching him battle back from two laps down to regain a position on the lead lap. I was texted that he had made it up to 8th position, and although I haven't seen any good replays of the incident he also told me that it was once again Smoke that took Ryan out w/ four to go. Just like he did in the 500 and at Dega last year. Not too upset by it cause lets face it, it's a plate race and that kind of crap always happens to Ryan so it was kind of expected.
All in all it was a pretty good Night the weather was beautiful, our seats were amazing, everyone had a great time, and all the stupid little annoying parts from Sunday are all just a memory. I do wanna say on a negative note though..... Say what you will about the racing at Pocono, but from a fan standpoint Pocono is a far better track than Daytona. Everything is relatively close, so there is no where near as much walking. Pocono allows you so much better access to the drivers, and The guards actually know what they are talking about (I can say that cause I was one a couple times ha ha)
All in all it was a pretty great expierience, and a historic one at that. First rain delayed 500, first 500 under the lights, 3rd woman to start a 500, and te first time some knuckleheaded driver from Columbia takes out a friggin jet dryer lol. I would def come down here and do it again.
My whole vacation was awesome. Her family is wonderfull and made us feel right at home for the entire week. Sadly today is the last full day for tomorrow we hafta catch a plane home. I cannot wait to get home and see our Powder puff (our kitten) but other than that I wish we could stay. Anyway when we get home I will post all my pics, (and videos if I can figure out how) From Daytona, our boat trip on the Gulf, and the dolphin tour we went on. Got good video of a couple dolphins but was too slow on the trigger to get a good pic lol. So I will post as much of that as I can and Iwill see you all when we get home.
"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
