NASCAR Experience- Kind of like racing around the buoys

I decided to post a few of the pictures from our trip to Charlotte last weekend. We were talking about this today at our holiday Sailnet gathering at Deep Creek

My wife purchased 3 8 minute sessions at Charlotte Motor Speedway for a B Day present for me in July and we finally got to go last weekend. It was quite a thrill of a lifetime going 152.93 moh (certified) around the oval. I am still shaking and dreaming about it.

I have included some of the pictures Donna took as promised. She took some great photos (Next time I am taking Joe with me)

Now THAT is a good wife.

Looks like you had a blast - I for one am green with envy.

Peace,

That's a Happy Birthday present and I know you had a great time. Once upon a time I worked in the industry and I've had more than a few laps around various tracks. Nothing quite like scratching the itch when you have the need for speed. I hope we get to compare notes someday.
