I had the opportunity to spend a couple of weekends with one of the NASCAR Nationwide Teams in Bristol, Tenn., and Richmond, Va. During the next couple of days, I am going to share my behind-the-scene experiences with you. If you are a fan of NASCAR, you will probably enjoy learning a little more about an exciting sport.
Well, I asked for some drama at Martinsville… and we got it.
Friday I went to the NASCAR Final Practice and watched the teams get ready for Saturday’s qualifying. Jeff Gordon had the quickest time around the track and a lot of drivers walked away thinking they need to make improvements before the race.
I thought long and hard about what to write about while at Bristol this past weekend. Maybe I should tell the fans about how the cars are running. Maybe I should let you know what the standings are for the current race and how the teams are already planning every move, so they can make it to the championship. But then it hit me. You might not have any idea what goes on at a track other than thinking the cars go around in a circle for hours. Oh yeah, you might also wonder why they don’t make any right turns. I should tell you that out of all the races NASACR does make right turns at a couple of the tracks. So readers here you go.
