Daytona International Speedway


Haven't posted in awhile : (
But we have been busy....
We went down to Daytona International Speedway, they had a preview of their new 60 minute tour they are doing. It was free for Sat. & Sunday so my son & his wife, Kelly and I went over. We waited on line for 2 1/2 hours - Yikes! Kelly & my daughter-in-law were wilting, they had to sit down on benches I didn't think they were going to make it. Once we got on the tour tram it was great! We got to see the drivers meeting room, go up in the skybox where the press sit during the race - What a view from there! We also checked out the "room of doom" the inspection area for the cars. We drove near turn four - you would not belive how much banking is there, you would not be able to walk up it with out ALOT of trouble, It is hard to belive that race cars go three wide there. We also got to go to victory lane, you could get pictures taken but we didn't. All in all we had a nice time at the speedway & my son's place - It is sooooo good to get away!!!!!!!!

Must be nice to live so close to something you enjoy so much.

I love going to the speedway. The last time we were there, I did the Richard Petty Driving Experience where you get to ride the track in a race car. Three laps at 150+ mph. It was amazing! The suits were heavy and bulky (to me anyway), and getting in those cars through the windows is kinda awkward, lol...but it was such an incredible thing to do! My boys were too little to do it then, and one of them still is, but I can't wait when they can do that too!

Thanks for sharing! :)
