My screen wasn't wide enough for the o's to show up without scrolling, so my first reaction was 'OK she's not a fan."
Then I scrolled over........... DOH! :hmr

Are you kidding? Not a fan????
I had to go through the 12 step program for auto racing.
Friday night: Reading
Saturday night: Selinsgrove
Sunday night: Penn National
Wednesday night: Orange Co. Speedway
Nazareth when I could squeeze it in and Pocono when the Indy cars were in town.
Had to stop, got to be more money than SASS!

Congrats, A list to take with you
1> Sunblock, sun glasses, big brimmed hat and a small umbrella
2> Ear plugs, it GETS LOUD
3> Comfortable shoes
4> Seat cushions, preferrably with back rests.
Check with your friends about the type of seats and if they allow you to bring in cushions and back supports. For some reason they may not...
Expect it to be hot and loud and lots of topless male red neck race fans running around.:faint

An awesomely fun and interesting day. My friend and I were in the grandstands between turns 3 & 4, while the wives got to enjoy the comforts of the corporate suite high above the start finish line.
TV does not do the colors and sounds of the cars under power any justice at all.
Even with the sunscreen and ducking into the shade every so often, was well done when we left near the end of the race to get a head start on the traffic.
Just as well, would have been even more dissapointed than I was that Gordon won again!:grr
