Talladega Weekend with the Girls!
By Melissa Lindsey

So this weekend was amazing! Here's a lil bit of how it went....
- and might I add, my husband is awesome for letting me do this girls weekend while he's in the sand box! I love you Joel!

Friday afternoon I headed to the Montgomery airport and picked up my girls, Megan and Darlynn. From the airport we proceeded to Talladega, just us girls jamming out in the truck all the way! Felt like we were headed for Spring Break or something! We got to 'dega around 3pm Friday, well to the track, but seeing how I nor Megan had been there for a while we had no clue how to get back to the Driver/Owner lot, so we stopped and talked to pretty much every security guard there, which they didn't mind at all... I mean, you've probably seen some of the stuff that goes to the infield, so they didnt mind having some nicely dressed pretty women to talk to...

So we finally made it to the motorcoach and got to relax for a lil while... we actually relaxed a lot this weekend amazingly! It was nice to just hang out. All the guys we were with were just awesome. They made sure we were well taken care of and didn't get into any trouble.
As for Friday night... we all loaded up in the golf cart and made our way out to the main inflield with all the other crazy people at Talladega Blvd! It's like a Redneck Mardi Gras on crack! We had fun just people watching! And there was plenty to watch! There was a guy wearing nothing but a tire, some old chick dancing on a makeshift pole, and much more just not enough time to name!

On Saturday us girls just hung out watching football. One of the funniest "you had to of been there" moments was on Saturday. Me, Meg and Dar were lounging outside the motorcoach watching football when Carl Edwards come walking by again. Apparently we were all staring at him, but who could resist!..so Carl turned and flashed that beautiful Carl Edwards smile and waved... and in a synchronized fashion all three of us raised our hands to wave and couldn't say a word! After he passed on by all we could do was look at each other with our beet red faces and bust out laughing. It wasn't like it was unusual for us to see all the drivers and say hi or anything, cause we were staying in the same lot with them, but we have a couple of those drivers that just get to us! You know, like Cutie Kasey Kahne, Dale Jr, Carl Edwards and my man Tony Stewart!

So next would be raceday.. Sunday morning we got up and got ready..headed down and walked around the garage and pits for a lil while, and just waited for the race. So when the race was about to get started we went on to Martin Truex's pit, put on our scanners and watched what we hoped was gonna be a good day for our number 1 Bass Pro Shops car...however it didn't turn out the way we hoped!! It sucked! Martin got taken out in the first big wreck of the race... Since that happend, we left the race a lil early to head to Atlanta since the girls had an early flight out on
Monday morning.

A couple side notes:
- Our wakeup call every morning was "What's Up Bitches"
- My new nickname is Hilljack...thanks Jager Bombs! lol
- We all 3 have stalkers (the drivers we see and run into everywhere!!) Megans is Carl Edwards, Darlynn's is Kyle Petty and mine is Reed Sorenson. Reed was once again everywhere we were this weekend..not to mention his motorcoach was right in front of ours!
- No mater where we were this weekend, if our beer was empty, we magically had a brand new one in our hands within 5 mins! Like I said, they took care of us very well!
- and some words frequently used... "Do Whaaat" "I Concur" "Going to the Front" and a very much used one "OMG!"

Honestly there is sooo much more, I'm just tired of writing and I'm sure if anyone has made it through reading this far, then you're probably tired of reading it too! :)
In summary, it was a great weekend and I can't wait til we get a chance to do it again! I miss my girls already!

Also.. Congrats to my Tony Stewart on the win, however I would've loved to see our Regan Smith win...it was a crazy ending but Regan should've still gotten 2nd place! Instead they put him in 18th! It's BS!
