What the hell race is up there?

Also, you're going to have to start reading and practicing agreeing with Jayhawk a lot more, so you'll fit in.

You will enjoy the racing. Different that road courses or open wheel of course but plenty to watch.

Prepare to drop a couple of hundred between food and the massive souvenir mall [think 60-70 50 ft trailers full of EVERYTHING from diecasts to t-shirts and not just NASCAR stuff]. There will be 4X Dale Jr to everyone else's souvenir stuff but other than that...

Enjoy and post pictures.

Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.

I would rent a radio and headset at the track. It helps immensly with figuring out what's going on during the race. I'm not much of a Nascar fan, but I've been to a few races and similar to Indy and F1, it's hard to really get what's going on other than watching the leader board (if you can see it) and listening to the PA during caution periods.

With a radio and headset you can listen to indiviual team radios (they'll give you a llst of frequencies) or just listen to the track feed. It will really make the race more fun.
