    Hey all - as requested, here are some pics from our weekend at the martinsville VA NASCAR race.

    this year, we camped out, rather than deal with motels, and the crowds trying to leave the race.. we just drank beer and cooked out while everyone else sat in traffic.

    If you've never camped out at a NASCAR race, hoo boy, it's a different experience.. next year, I bring a couch and some lawn ornaments.. just so I fit in a bit more..

    met some cool people down there.. the people with the red toyota in the pictures were from west virginia, and further down the hill were some locals that talked like ward burton.. also hung out with some gordon fans from indiana, and during the race , as always, we sat by the " mute kenseth fans", a husband and wife who just sit there with there little scanners, staring straight ahead.. and not speaking all race..

    anyway, on with the pics..the racing pics are self explanatory - we were sitting about 14 rows back from the fence, right where turn four meets the front straight..

    one highlight I guess was when the golf cart carrying kenny wallace to "trackside" about ran me over - I hollered to kenny, and he gave me the thumbs up.. I like kenny, so that counts as a highlight..

    anyway, on with the show.

    Camping out is totally the way to go! About 5 of us from the base went to fontana race and just as we recovered from that we were given tickets to vegas! It was butt cold in vegas but the spirits kept us warm!
