NASCAR! America’s race: The Daytona 500.
I attended my first ever NASCAR race over the weekend. I picked a big one too. “America’s race” the 2014 Daytona 500 at the Daytona International Speedway in Florida.
Daytona International Speedway – Daytona 500
“America is all about speed. Hot, nasty, badass speed.“

The completely made up opening text to the hilarious NASCAR comedy:
Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby (2006 starring Will Ferrell)
When I first got to the speedway I spent a while wandering around the team sales stalls and so forth in the Midway. This was great for people watching and picking up souvenirs. Lots of cars were on display in this area, NASCAR drivers were being interviewed for the crowd and I also got to meet Miss Sprint Cup 2013Brooke Werner which was fun!
