I am going to the Daytona 500 this year! I cannot wait. I haven’t been in about a decade. Don’t get me wrong I watch it every year on the telly, but nothing compares to the live action of the cars as they drive by. I can’t wait to feel the shaking of the cars as they round the corner and the smell of beer in the air. It feeds my soul.
I may go early and camp out….not sure. I can only take about 2 days of beer, smoked sausage and hot sun. I want to bring my wife but know that she can only take a few hours of the NASCAR atmosphere before turning into a complaining machine so maybe I will call Bill and we can make it a man trip. Road trip.
Tickets are ranging from $65 to $680 depending on where you sit. I think the best tickets are at the back stretch. I know that’s weird but that’s where I like to sit. The good news is those seats are cheap and there are usually a great deal of bumper bumping going on in the back stretch. So, the action is close up…but after 4 beers, who cares.
