Talking about the race week coming up at Charlotte Motor Speedway in about a month....its that redneck thing we do here in the South.


Digity digity digity!!!!! I have my all star tickets, will be there at 7AM in lot B with breakfast cooking and bloody mary's, then we start the cornhole tourney, then grill lunch and tap the keg, tailgate all afternoon, grill dinner, and head into the track around 7PM.

And it is race "weeks", do it all again the next weekend for the 600.

We will have a group of about 40 at the All Star event, but won't make the 600.

Yep, good old redneck fun. I had no interest in racing before I moved to Charlotte, then I went to my first race and got the bug a little. Then I did the racing school and was hooked.

Yep, need a sponsor for my ride. A big "Brainfiller" logo would look nice on the hood :)

Was that at Fast Track? Gary and Andy Hillenburg operate the school. Gary is a partner in one of my planes and was a flight instructor for me until about 2 years ago. I keep telling him that I am going to do the school at some point.

Yes it was fast track, still have the hat. They have you sign a ton of waivers, I asked what happens if I wreck the car? Guy looks at me and says "Don't wreck the car".

That is the media center at Lowes, um Charlotte motor speedway. That was where we were "briefed" and got suited up befoe heading out to the pits. Never been to the fast track office.
