My first NASCAR race and my guy wins the million dollar All-Star Race!
Yeah, and you can bet your socks I voted like nobody’s business to make sure he DID get in if he did not qualify in.
And then he wins.
It’s the thrill of a lifetime, truly. If you aren’t a fan, you can’t imagine and if you are a fan, I don’t have to describe it.
It’s Monday, I’m exhausted, I’m hoarse and I am still in North Carolina, awaiting my flight home via Houston.
I cannot get over how polite people are here in NC! Everyone smiles, everyone calls you “ma’am”, everyone has time to talk to you. Hell, everyone has time! There is a whole different pace here, and it took me exactly 24 hours to get used to it. I am most definitely in a “North Carolina State of Mind”. It’s great. The only place greener is Ireland.
There is an entire world out here that is NOT California.
Wish I could stay.
I’ll be back next year, only this time I’ll be staying for the Coca-Cola 600, too.
