We had a great weekend with Kelly and Jon at Bristol. We got up Friday, dropped the kids off at school or Mona's, then joined Mom and Dad at the Barrel for Breakfast. After filling up our bellies, we started the adventure. We just HAD to stop in Knoxville for some shopping before going North.
Once we made it to Bristol, we stopped to fill up on snacks and water then headed to the track. We browsed around buying trinkets for all who ordered things then went in to watch final practice. The Nationwide Race was "only" 250 laps we so we were out of the track early. We stayed in Boone, NC for the night.
After being lazy Saturday morning, we were being typical tourists in Boone. What a great place! VERY little humidity and a nice breeze. We loved the downtown area and ate lunch at the mellow mushroom before heading out.
We made our way back to the track for the best night of racing. What was my favorite part?...
the fly-over, the flag coming in from a sky-diver, Carl Edwards on the pole, Carl Edwards winning the race, Carl Edwards pushing Kyle Busch out of the way to win, Carl Edwards hitting Busch after the race, all the lovely mullets, the 9,310 people without shirts on, or just hanging with my sister and hubby for a weekend? It was an awesome time had by all and look forward for the chance to do it again.
We came home Sunday to play in a golf tournament with Mom and Dad. We all won door prizes and Mom and Dad even won a new microwave.
I'll get pictures on here tomorrow because it will take too long to upload them. Jon, I promise the good ones will be here. We got some really nice shots of Nascar
