February 14 Valentine's Day and what better way to spend it than watching auto racing at Daytona? I can't think of anything.
Yesterday morning we packed a lunch and hopped in with John and Judy and headed over to Daytona to watch the Lucas Oil 200 and the Sprint Unlimited.
They are rebuilding the Daytona Raceway and what a huge improvement to the facilities. We had just the best seats in town. Right after the start-finish and directly across from my guy Kyle Busch's pit. Awesome!!!
After the Lucas Oill 200 we had sometime to wander around and see the sights plus grab something to eat before the big race started at 8:15 p.m. I even had to cough up for a $4.00 cup of coffee to warm up between races. It was cold!!
The Sprint Unlimited was a pretty exciting race. All the big names race in this one.
Here is Kyle in for tire changes.
There are some big crashes. This one was directly in front of us.
Looks like our gang was pretty chilly!!
By the time the race was over and we waited for the bus to take us back to the parking lot we were all pretty much frozen. Even with our winter coats we were cold. Funny how our bodies have adjusted to the warm florida weather. At home these coats would keep us warm at -30'
You will recall that last year we went to the Daytona 500 and got rained out. At least now I can say I watched a whole race at the Daytona Speedway, actually two races. Another scratch off the bucket list. Yippee!!
