Saturday is Alright for Racing

Ugh—I sometimes really hate it when they have night races. It throws off my usually routine when it comes to NASCAR. I usually start off with things on Fridays, but last night they had qualifying for the Cup Race. UGH–and I missed it! Tony qualified 3rd behind Biffle (2nd) and little Shurb (Busch) who won the pole.

This race will be on Saturday night. I really like watching Saturday night races because it always reminds me of the nights I spent at the dirt track in Amarillo as a young girl. My father was one of the pit guys for his buddy who raced modfieds. It was really cool. I spent many a Saturday night with the other “kids” running around the bleachers. I remember buying buttons of my favorite drivers including those who drove the late models and VW. I wore them proudly just as I wear my favorite drivers t-shirts today. Even back then I had that one driver I didn’t like–Commander Cody just like today I don’t like Jimmie or Kurt. I was able to go down in the pits after the races and meet all the drivers and get their autographs. It was really cool when they had the demomalition derbies. I wanted so much to get a beat up car and crash into other cars. I think that is why I am sooooo into NASCAR. It brings back all those wonderful memories I had back in the day.

But the downside to this night racing…no racing on Sunday. Once again I will spend my Sunday surfing the tv channels looking for something to watch. Hopefully the movie selection will be better than last Sunday. I may just have to start that spring cleaning…maybe…I will have to think about it.
