We walked around the booths on the outside of the tracks and picked up souvenirs. Once we got inside the gates we were able to walk down onto the track and into the in-field. We got lots of pictures. Our seats for the races were right in front of entrance from the in-field to the pits. There was a big screen in front of us so we could see anything we might miss out on at the other end of the track. It was really loud and vibrating when the cars came around the track. They came around so fast in front of us that it was just a blur, there was no way to make out individual cars. We got to see Jimmy Johnson win the race.
It was a hot crowded walk back to the car. Once we got there, it felt good to sit in the air conditioning and cool off. We didn't have any problem getting out on the main road with the police directing traffic on our corner. It was late by the time we got back to the motel so we just ordered room service for dinner and called it a night. We had a wonderful time and got lots of pictures.
