Well anyone who knows me knows I have Motor Oil in my Blood. I have loved cars and trucks all my life. Racing was always a dream too. I have Drag Raced and have Stock Raced, all small scale. We ran two cars at the old US 30 Drag Strip in Indiana, also a Stock Car at the old SantaFe Race Way in Willow Spring Illinois. I was under 21 so I had to sneak into the pits. I laded on the floor of the tow truck to get into the pits.
Well my love for speed and cars never left. I always loved racing. I loved to watch too as Nascar came to television. I can remember as a kid on Memorial day when the Indy 500 would come on Grandpa and Mom’s brothers would listen on the radio. Wow I sound old !!!!
This year in our travels we toured Daytona Speedway. The tour was great too. I walked up the finish line and boy is it steep like walking up a steep roof.
We or I had a great time with our visit at this historic race track. I know that’s cause I have some Red Neck in me.
Our tour took us all over the track, victory circle to the pits and the Nascar Sky Boxes.
The tunnel is so big that two Semi’s and golf carts can go thru at the same time.
Jimmy Johnson was the winner of this years race. The car was taken from Victory Lane to the display. Wow win the race and Loose your car.
My all time favorite driver Cale Yarbrough, heck I watched him at SantaFe Raceway one night.
Well we couldn’t go to Daytona with out driving on the beach. The weather was cool that day so not too many people. Heck I almost got Old Blue stuck in the soft sand. Thanks to the 4 WD we got out I guess that’s why the sign said Soft Sand Keep Out !!!
The Sand Police were not playing with the speed limit. Marti was Happy Happy to see the beach and wanted to go into the water. I told her I would see Ice Caps out in the Water !!!
