Anybody going to the Daytona 500?

Just found out I have a free ticket to all speed weeks and a four bedroom house 30 minutes from the track. I'll be there Wednesday through Monday.

Anybody going? Rooster, Karnuvore? We need to hook up.

I'll be there for the Gatoraid Duels on Thursday the Busch race on Saturday and then the cup race on Sunday. Grant211 will there too. We are going to be tailgating right in front of the main tower.

Where you staying? Bringing the Jeep down? Maybe we can go play one day.

Yeah, I'm bringing the Jeep. Not sure where I'm staying. My uncle from Iowa got the tickets and house. All I know is that it's 30 minutes from the track. I'll be down Wednesday through Monday.

I need to get up with some of the guys I met at River Rock with you too. Brian Burt (Buse) and the guy with the TJ that stayed in the camper by the shop. Can't remember his name for some reason, but I think it was Jeff.

Not a problem. I'll set up a meet. There was Buse, Darron, Kevin (Silver Eagle TJ), Mark (AKA Sparky, red River Rock TJ), Jeff (Red YJ), Greg (Blue CJ). We can plan on getting everyone together.

I could talk my wife into going and driving our drunk asses around. She's accustomed to my excesses. .

Rooster et. al., if you guys get together for a trail run or anything - lemme know.

Yeah, it was Kevin. He was staying in Sparky's camper. You got his number? I have Buse's number.

Just checked the schedule and it looks like if we want to put together some sort of trail ride, Friday is the best option. The truck race doesn't start until 8 PM. All of the other races are day races.

If it doesn't work out for everybody, I'm fine for just hanging out.

if we get a "WIDE" trailride...(karnuvore this means NO RICHLOAM!)

I'll go.

I will have my buddy from West Palm with me and my old college buddy from tenn with me. It would be a blast to sling some mud on the jeep before we go to the race. Perferably in the later part of the afternoon/early evening.

A really really big opportunity to get stinking drunk, watch cars wreck @ ~200 mph, and, if you're lucky, see some boobies.

I used to really like nascar, you know, back in the day. I still tune in for a couple races a year (bristol and martinsville) the rest of the races are one big snooze fest.
