I had a couple co-workers that went and never made it to the track either. This year they had no problem and said the Kentucky track was a lot of them's favorite practice track. I loved Dale Sr, mostly influenced by my Dad and two brothers I guess, and now we root for Jr. I don't schedule my time around a race like I do UK games and it will be on for four hours while I do laundry, dishes, etc..stopping to watch rerun clips of big wrecks or a come from behind wins. A lot of people thought Dale Sr was too arrogant and a dirty driver. I didn't though. I enjoyed the old banging and shuffling of cars getting positions. These days there is just too many rules and a lot of new drivers. Guess it is the "next" generation of drivers. lol<quoted text>
Last year was such a traffic mess that my son was hung out on the road for 7 hours and never made it to the track. They sent him free tickets for this past years' truck, Nationwide, and Sprint cup races. They have since reworked the access coming off the interstates and when he went this year, he said the access was much easier. I have been there and to Talledega twice. But I won't ever go back to Bristol, it is uphill walking both ways. LOL I never cared much for Earnhardt.
Glad the rooster didn't take off with the hens like Una suggested. haha, I could see dog enjoying his AC and round a bout driving. lol
I don't know if you ever clicked on that video I posted about the driving dog. A true story and an amazing concept for service dogs.
