Texas Motor Speedway - November '09

What a great weekend? My BFF and I went to Texas Motor Speedway to watch the Nationwide & Sprint Cup Series races - we love NASCAR!!! Here are some pictures I took with my brand new camera - love that camera!!



In case you can't see the captions, I'll give you some highlights. ZZ Top was the pre-race concert...k, I think these dudes are old! LOL Very interesting; the tall skinny one had purple shoelaces. LOL Their guitars were sparkly orange on the front and bright purple on the back.

They played 1 or maybe 2 songs with fur covered guitars - too funny.

During the Sprint Cup race there was a vulture that landed on the wheel fence - he landed once and then flew around a bit and landed even closer to us...he stuck around awhile. Many were worried that he would fall down onto the track - those cars are going up to 170+ mph....but he finally flew away. I got some pretty good shots of him.

You'll easily guess my favorite driver - he's the only one I took pictures of - HA!! I wasn't sure how the pictures would turn out since the camera was totally new...I should have gotten more pictures; our children all have favorite drivers - should have got their cars too. There is one picture of Tony & Bobby Labonte's car - Bobby is my BFF's driver.

We had such a great, great time!!! Thanks for popping in - it's so great to see you! Hugs, ~M.
