A Day At The Race

**First, let me just say...I'm not a photographer. I don't even own a good digital camera, but I always have my phone on me. So, I know they're not great, but well you'll get the picture. (ha!)

Yesterday I went to the Nascar race in Martinsville. This is what the track looks like from the outside. It’s literally in the middle of a field. A big field.

And this is what it looks like from the inside.

Now, I know what you’re thinking. Wow, she must be a redneck, right? Not all racing fans are rednecks. Ok, fine, my neck is a LITTLE red from the sun, but it will be brown tomorrow. I swear! I admit, too, that I haven’t been quite as into racing this season, but I still like to go to races. I can listen to the drivers talk to their crews (some of them cuss. A lot. It’s great.), you can take your own beer inside with you, and I love watching people. It’s probably my favorite thing. And you see all kinds of people.

Like this guy. He was sitting behind me. When my friends and I figured out he was snoozing, I slipped my phone under my arm and got this shot. Too much beer, maybe? The race hadn't even started yet!And then there was this woman. In all of the races I have been to, I have never laughed at anything so hard in my life. And she did this almost the whole race. (She disappeared for the last 100 laps. I’m thinking she went to pass out.) I looked over once and she was dancing to some groovy tune in her head. It had to be in her head because without scanner headphones the only thing you can hear is the cars roaring. (Also note: it's possible the sound may be LOUD for this. If so, I'm sorry. I think I turned the sound off, but I'm not certain.)

PS. The shaking on the video is from me dying laughing. I just couldn’t help myself.

About Me

My photo
I'm a walking contradiction. While I love to draw, paint and read, I also love all things gadgets, science and even science fiction (I know). My animals (two dogs and two birds) are my heart, and if I could figure out how to legally own a giraffe, I would. That all said, I have my BS in Mathematics. :o)
