I am climbing in the HHR and heading back down to Vegas to visit Misty and for the #NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Race! Whoo hoo- we haven’t been to a race track since June- and that is just TOO LONG (especially considering that our next Cup race isn’t until Phoenix in November- YEY Phoenix- it’s my favorite track that I have been to).  Plus I think it’s been quite awhile since I have been to a truck series race.

By the way- if you are going to be in Las Vegas for the Smiths 350 truck race this weekend- South Point Hotel & Casino will be hosting a free autograph session with many of the truck series drivers on Friday September 27th from 7-8pm.  Check out this announcement from Las Vegas Motor Speedway for more details.

Going to the truck races also means that I will be late with the Team 14 Dover Race Report this week because I don’t come back from Vegas until Monday (and it takes me a good 7-8 hours to drive it- it’s about 500 miles so be glad you aren’t forced to watch the Amy/Vegas 500- it’s definitely not exciting and pit stops tend to take much longer than 12 seconds) and then expect to get fully slammed when I get back to work on Tuesday (I am in the middle of a project which means meetings, meetings and more meetings). For the same reason I, it will likely take me a bit to get the Truck race pictures up because I will have to sift through about 16 gigs worth of pictures.

You can always follow all my adventures real-time on Twitter and/or Facebook (usually when I am traveling or at a race I tend to be more likely to post to twitter than FB for some reason) but be prepared for NASCAR truck stuff interspersed with whatever else I just happen to be doing while in Vegas this weekend). And of course Misty has twitter as well- and likely we will end up bantering back and forth like we do.

Gratuitous Goodies after the jump (more…)

I am leaving bright and early to take a road trip to Vegas. Tomorrow is BFFM’s birthday so I am loading the HHR full of her presents, her brother (who is up here visiting his grandma), and I am heading to the desert for a few days,

Things I plan to do while in Vegas:

  • Watch BFFM open her presents! YEY for presents.
  • Eating cake…there will be cake…it’s a birthday! YEY for cake!
  • Catch Slaughter playing their hometown crowd.
  • Watch at least one movie…possibly two (actually at a theater).
  • Catch a production of the Lion King
  • Watch the Brickyard at an as of right now undisclosed location…because frankly I am not sure where we will end up..but hopefully Tony will have a good run. If he’s not? I will be the one cussing and throwing napkins at the TV…sorry in advance for that one!
  • Oh and since its been like 110 there…I will probably be alternating between melting into a puddle and bitching about the heat…

Have no fear though…I plan to have some entries queued up for your reading pleasure EVERY DAY (am I dedicated or what?)...however my usual post race report will be delayed because I probably won’t be back until monday evening and even then after having spent 8-9 hours in my car will prob not be in the mood to post until Tuesday.
