Going to NASCAR was such a crazy, fun experience! My sweet friend Emily told me that I needed to bring earplugs because it was so loud (which we did) but honestly nothing could have prepared me for this. This is the kind of loud that you can feel throughout your entire body. We got out of our car and were walking down the long dusty road to get to the entrance. As soon as we reached the second parking lot you could hear and feel the roaring of the engines. People were decked out in their NASCAR paraphernalia and there was a familiar, sweet smell of cooking out. When we got inside, we climbed up to our seat and I kept giggling because I would look over at Chris and realize he had been talking to me! I am serious, I could hear nothing! (take note, not a good idea to go here for a first date)

We had a blast, it was such a fun experience. Something that I don't know if I will ever have the chance to do again, so glad I got to have a fun date with my favorite guy :).

  3. I can't decide if that looks and sounds AWESOME, or if I would get super bored because I couldn't talk. :p Do you follow NASCAR on tv?

  4. My grandparent's home was right across from the Darlington racetrack. I grew up going to races with my family. One of my first race memories is going with my granddaddy and sitting under the Grand Stand (with a tin roof) holding my ears! You brought back many memories. Thanks.

  6. If you ever do get to go again. rent the headsets, you can tune in and listen to drivers talk, and you can talk to each other if they are equipped with that. This year was the first time i'd done that, and it added to the experience so much!

  8. SO glad you got to go and experience it! Thanks for the positive outlook on car racing, too many people assume they are a bunch of hillbillies ;) I used to race cars on dirt tracks, and the stereotypes are awful! There's just as many millionaire business owners, as guys(or girls!) just getting by.
    I agree, rent headsets if you have the chance to go again...and wander around the campground/tailgate areas! Many people are happy to have you sit and join them for a meal, a snack, or just a beer.

I have so many pictures which I will definatly be blogging about when I get around to sorting through them all. :) I LOVE seeing photos and reading about others NASCAR experiences.

  10. There really is nothing like it. I'm a pearl-wearing-preppy-not-redneck huge NASCAR fan. It was fun to follow your day on IG.
