I have been waiting for this week all off season because it means that I am back at a race track!!! It was torture because I started getting press releases for the race at Las Vegas Motor Speedway before the season actually started which made my wait for this weekend a little more torturous than ever.
For instance I got one announcing that Rascal Flatts would be singing the national anthem. That one excited me because usually the anthem is sung by performers from one of the shows…but I know Rascal Flatts (they are, by the way, in the middle of a nine- show residency at the Joint at the Hard Rock called Rascal Flatts Riot!- so if you are in Vegas through March 14th you might want to try to check them out if you are fan).
I even got one press release from Maverick Helicopters- touting their service as a way to get to and from the track! That would be super awesome- but it’s a little too price for this wee little blogger ($500 round trip to and from track or $300 one way per person)- but how could would it be to travel to the track in style like that? Not to mention you would miss all that crazy race traffic after the race! I am terribly afraid of heights but I think if it was offered to my party I would definitely try it just to say I did it. Not to mention that the trip is only 15 minutes so I think I could buck up and handle it! It would be one way to make your race weekend in Vegas memorable that is for sure…if you are interested in that or other helicopter experiences by the way check out their website: FlyMaverick.com
Anyway- I leave tomorrow for Vegas (sans helicopter) so that Misty and I can finally get back to the track (Phoenix in November seems like eons ago).
Posting will be light here because I don’t even get back from Vegas until Monday evening- which likely won’t be enough time to do a race diary post like I like to do until later in the week, just to warn you.
