Cold Wet-Lanta

As I am wrapping up the day, playing major catchup after my trip to Atlanta Motor Speedway w/ HillJack (or Hill-F.N.-Jack), I felt the duty to do some blogging since we have slacked off this past week.

Altanta, which was my least favorite track of all, has made its way into my top 3 tracks. It is one of the easiest tracks to get around in the infield. I get lost very easily so this is a very important factor in my book. Red Bull had a suite thing called the energy station. It was out of control. It was a two story, high end night club sitting ontop of the hill inbetween turns 2 & 3. It was fully catered, all you can drink, DJ, plasma screen tv's everywhere you looked, 2 balcony areas that overlooked the track: It was a new venture in my Nascar experiences. I wanted to move in! Melissa fell in love with Red Bull cola, she even set our redbulls up on dates w/ our deserts: I wonder how long it will take to get that Red Bull Cola stuff on the market. I was overly impressed with the whole set up, which I found out costs $1 million per race. That is A LOT of money for a suite/tent/whatever you want to call it.

The weather was awful on Friday night but we surely made the best of it and had a wonderful time. Saturday and Sunday were cold and windy but very nice. I even got a little sunburnt. I finally got to see Carl Edwards do a back flip in person: And I got to see my bud Regan Smith for a few seconds, which is always a highlight.
It was another weekend of too much fun, great people, and no sleep.
