When my son, started watching NASCAR Sprint Cup, races at the age of 2, I was totally amazed how much he loved car racing. Even practices or qualifying he would spend hours watching them on television. My husband, and I were not big fans of car racing. Though after spending time watching it with our son, Charles we now both enjoy it. Seeing the big wrecks, the 2 laps is very exciting especially when your favorite driver is leading though gut wrenching where there’s a caution.
With the three of us being huge NASCAR fans now of course, we’ve been to a couple of races at Kansas Speedway. The first one was when my husband got free tickets from the Marine Corp, at school where he teaches. Second, my sister-in-law, and her husband was with us. Our third one was last Saturday, NASCAR Sprint Cup, Spongebob Squarepants 400. This time 9 of us watched the race which was more fun to watch though it rained during the race. Till the time the racetrack was dried out which took 2 hours it was already late at night until the race was over.
Thankfully, one of my favorite Hendricks drivers, Jimmie Johnson, won the race but I would love to see Jeff Gordon, Dale Earnhardt Jr., or Kasey Kahne win the race. For Charles, his favorite drivers; Brad Keselowski, Joey Logano, or Kyle Larson wins the race. When the race was over walking down to the parking lot was muddy which kinds of reminds me of the Philippines. Luckily, we found the car easily, getting out of the parking lot took us a couple of minutes so it was about 2 in the morning when we arrived at my sister-in-law’s house. Oh my, it was already late.
Now, that Doug is planning to watch an Indy Car race, in Fort Worth, Texas, makes me think twice whether we should go or not. It’s a long drive, what’s the weather going to be like but the tickets are so affordable and hard to come by. Plus, this would be our trip for the summer out of State if ever we will go.
