Ok here I am... Day #2 (told you I would be back heh heh!)

let's talk about Talladega!

I had the best time ever! We met up with some old friends and camped for 6 days.

We hung out and even spent some time with some of Denny's, Kyle's and Tony's Pit Crew one night. yeah we did!


Race Day was H-O-T! Hot! I was baking in the sun. But it was all worth it.

And even though the end of the race ended in a call from Nascar.
Tony won! And I was there to see it! Woo hoo!

Also, Denny Hamlin was in a bad wreck. It happened right in front of us on the backstretch. It was bad. He had to be transported to the hospital. But he was ok.

The only bad thing about the entire experience was that I was unable to see my friend Gretchen. We talked on the phone, but we were not able to hook up.

What were we thinking? LOL The track is huge. She was on the front stretch. I was on the back.

I am so sorry Gretchen! I miss you and I wish we could have spent time together.

Overall, Talladega was amazing! I had so much fun, but was ready to come home to my family.

Next year, we are taking the twins to Richmond to see their first race. I think that may be the only race we make it to next season. But I know the kids will love it! And Richmond is a track we have never gone to before. Fun! Fun! Fun!

On a sad note, yesterday was Tony's last ride in the Home Depot #20 car.

He starts his new ride with Stewart-Haas next year in the Old Spice #14 car.

And it is Red! Yuck! I do not look good in red. I will miss the orange! But we will be ready!

We go where our driver goes!

So, that is it. Talladega in a nutshell.

I camped. I drank a little too much (shhh do not tell anyone). Spent time with old friends. Met some new ones. Talladega Perfection.

Have a great day!

And see you tomorrow.

PS I will post an advent calendar I did for Creative Memories in tomorrow's post!
