I am usually getting ready about this time of year to head off to TMS, but alas I am going to have to stay home and watch the races again. I am hoping (fingers and toes crossed) I can make the trek in November.
I haven’t been to any other track on the circuit, but I have to say Eddie Gossage and the folks at TMS know how to do it right.
If you are headed down this way, here are a few little tidbits/trivia about TMS
1.5 mile oval with 24 degrees of banking in the turns
1,656 women’s restrooms
843 men’s restrrooms
Pit road length is 800 feet
TMS is the first speedway ever to dsiplay the lasp in the race counting down and counting up.
Has enough permanent lighting to illuminate 11 NFL stadiums
In one year, there are enough hot dogs sold to go around the 1.5 oval six times–that’s nine miles
Eight Texas Stadiums will fin in the infield of TMS
I guess you could say we do it BIG in Texas. Of course that’s how we do things in Texas.

Hey Trixie, here I just stopped by to tell you to have fun at the race, only to find you won’t be able to make it this time. I really need to get around more.
We have some new members at NASCAR Bloggers Full Throttle and I think I am about ready to step things up there. Check it out and and add any input or suggestions you care to add. Okay, I see you already have Monte Dutton’s blog on your sidebar, so I don’t need to tell you about that.
I have a feeling Smoke is about ready to win one. Go Smoke!
Nice slide show application…
