I had to start a post about everything nascar.
I've been a huge nascar fan for about 10 years & this year i'm finally getting to go to my first race live. I'll be at the race in Dover, DE Sept.25/05 and i cant wait!! My brother lives in Coatesville,PA. which is like an hour away fom Dover. I know lots of you guys(and gal,HW) get to these races on a regular basis. So let me know what to expect when i get down there.

First race? Cool. I have been to Dover and this is what you can expect.
Traffic from hell. Parking is gonna cost you 20 bucks WHEN you find a spot. (thats about $10,000 canadian.) I know the joke is old...can't help myself. Anyway. Dover is a great track so that makes up for a few bad things.

One of the the things I like, is we have 75,000 people drinking beer and rarely have any trouble. But if you are a Gordon fan...get ready to get picked on. It's all fun. You are gonna love the sound of those engines getting fired up. And the smell of high octane exhaust...nothing like it!
If you don't have a race scanner, rent one. Tune in your favorite drivers and listen. Alot of the time the drivers and crew are pretty funny.
This will also help you figure out what is going on. Because once they get going, you don't know what the heck is going on. Untill a restart that is. And restarts are where it's at :thumbsup: Oh and sacanners are good for the ears too, I don't know how you will react, but I could not believe how loud those cars are by themselves, let alone 43 of them putting their foot to the floor.

Visit the souvenir trailers, you can find driver gear that is not normally available. Go early stay late. My mistake was waiting to long to get to the track, then made another one trying to get out of there too soon. If you are just gonna sit there you might as well cook up some burgers and dogs. Put on a pair of comfortable shoes, you are going be doing a lot of walking. The sponsors have stages and stuff set up and have things going on all the time. So there is no reason to be bored. I know I am forgeting something. Well, somebody else will post it. If you have anymore questions just ask. And have fun :thumbsup:

Snafu summed it up pretty good. I'm not sure about Dover, but most tracks allow you to bring in a small cooler (no glass). I would check on it first and see what dimensions are allowed. A good collapsable bag cooler works great. It's alot cheaper and easier packing your on drinks.

Make sure that you get to those souvinere trailers and like the man said get there early.

Lastly, you thought that you were a fan before, just wait to you actually see, feel, hear, and smell those bad boys get fired up. That first green flag lap is absolutely unbelievable. You WILL have chills all over. :thumbsup:

You can also go to http://www.ajc.com/sports/content/share ... /pic1.html for pictures from the Altanta Journal-Constitution. They're estimating $40 million in damage, but they're saying they plan to be ready to race at the end of October. I sure hope so... I don't want to miss it!

i concur with ga, snafu summed it up pretty well. i take a small hibachi grill, a few lounge chairs, cooler full of beer/water/etc., and a canopy is a must. eat before...eat after. don't get in a hurry!

i have been trying to get bristol tickets for 3 years now.... :pissed:

The AMS is well under reconstruction and they everything will be ready be the fall race. I heard that security caught a guy stealing a sign and Ed Clark (the owner of AMS) asked if it was bent. When he found out that the sign was bent, he told the man to take 10 more. Those folks are working hard to get that place back in shape. :salude:

I was just on my way to this post to tell you to shut up. But you beat me in here. I don't think the 97 will get the cup this year. Then again I did not think he will would get it last year. But when he just missed the water barrels after blowing a tire, I was sure he sold his soul to the devil for that cup title. I know one thing...it will not be Gordon this year... :getdown:

I hate to say it, I think it will be the "Bug eyed dummy" (Biffle) this year.

HAHAHA!!! My wife would want you castrated if she saw that :laughing:

It's gonna be tough to call it this year. I'm not quite sure Busch can do it again(altough i'd like to see it) The way it's lookin now i'm saying Biffle or Stewart, but i wouldn't count the #48 out either.

Gordon is done this year and the same goes for JR. :thumbsup:

It all depends on who peaks at the right time. I think that Biffle and Johnson might be on the downslide. Stewart is always tough to beat. My man Rusty is looking awfully consistent. I sure would love it he could finish his career with another championship, but it's gonna be tough.
