We got hospitality passes along with our tickets, so we got to park in the preferred lot, right next to the gate entrance, ushered to a reserved chalet where we were showered with souvenirs, all the food/drinks for the day, and even got to visit and hang out with Jamie McMurray! Bass Pro sponsors his #1 car, so he really treated us well. Blake got his pic taken with him and we got some goodies signed.
We got to go check out the "behind-the-scenes" stuff. We went back to the garages, where all the cars were being inspected, gassed up, and ready to race! We got to walk down pit road and check out the pit crews. We even got to hang out on the field for a pre race concert. It was all awesome, but Blake's favorite part was getting to sign the track and the wall!!
|Blake is four tires tall!|
|I love the shot of a soldier walking|
down pit road under the army-
sponsored pit sign!
|They both got to sign the white line!|
|Billy wrote this....awwww, how sweet!|
|Blake and Tay's signature...and his checkered flag|
|they are tiny on the track!|
|signing the wall|
Leaving the track, Taylor says, "Wow, that car thing was soooo fun" that coming from our 3 year old (who we thought wouldn't appreciate it), makes the entire trip worth it all!!!
