This past weekend by friend Rebekah and I headed up to Sonoma to check out the NASCAR Sprint Cup series race. Technically the main race was on Sunday and we were there Saturday so I think this list item might eventually need a redo but for now I'm considering it checked off. We got to see the practice laps for Sunday so basically its like we were there and all NASCAR-fied. On Saturday it was the Pick-n-Pull Racing to Stop Hunger 200 NASCAR K&N West Series Race. What does that mean? No idea...my NASCAR knowledge is pretty much: cars go round a track, cars try to be the fastest, cars try not to crash....yup sums it up pretty good right?
I thought we would be in for a crazy day considering how busy the parking lot was at 9am when we got there but it actually wasn't too bad once we got inside. I'm not a huge crowd person so it actually was awesome for me...all the fun and none of the crazy long lines. By the way, if you've never been to a race and are looking to go, totally check out this track...the views were awesome (bonus would be the wineries right next door :-)).
I was totally prepared for this event: Ticket? Check
Patriotic fanny pack? Check (so handy!)
Beer? Check (bonus points for US Air Force Coozie)
Aaaaaand check (double bonus points for putting this patriotic refreshment IN my Air Force coozie)
