This weekend, we headed up to Virginia for a little racing action.
Torrance and his dad are both pretty into racing – of any kind, and this was actually my first official Nascar race.
Luckily, Martinsville is only about an hour and 15 minutes from us – so we went up Saturday to watch the truck series (thus the empty side-stands, since the truck races aren’t as popular).
Torrance actually has a few of the race shops as clients so it was kind of cool to root for people he actually knows and deals with weekly.
It turned out to be a blast, and what I decided I love about Nascar races (besides the drama – drivers getting in fights, crashing, etc) as opposed to a lot of other sporting events? You can bring your own damn food and drinks in. Genius.
So yeah, we brought our own little cooler and got kind of wasty.
It was, however, a little chilly – but we were prepared and layered up. It was about 45 or so and windy. Luckily we had drinks to warm us up!
- What type of sporting events do you like to go to?
- Are you starting to get some wintry weather where you live?
It was definitely chilly this weekend (it got down to 28 degrees one night!), but we are supposed to get warm again this week – in the 70s!
