Though it’s nothing I keep hidden, the fact that I’m a huge Nascar fan seems to surprise people. I mean sure; we all have the stereotypical Nascar fan in our heads, but (hopefully) I’m not that guy.
Every spring, my Pops and I go to Vegas for Nascar Weekend at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway: a 1.5 mile track that hosts 131,000 race fans for three days. Yes there are engineers. Yes, there are the shirtless beer can slinging hillbillies that seem to yell “GET R DONE” for no reason whatsoever. And yes, there is at least one nutty DJ and his Dad seeing exactly how much he can get away with at a professional sporting event. This year, we stepped up our “yee haw” factor by going in Dad’s RV.
Not only is there no commute, but it’s much less likely that Nuke Em will give away my trip in Dad’s tenement on wheels. So with that out of the way, I bring you Jon Smith’s NASCAR PHOTO BLOG, DAY ONE!
So there you go! Sunday will have about 3 times as many people, as well as the most popular drivers in the sport. We’ll be getting up early so I’ll have more on DAY #2!
