Not only did we attend the Coca Cola 600, with pit and driver introduction passes, but we attended qualifying, practices, and the Xfinity race.

I wished Tony Stewart good luck on the start/finish line... with a little Louisiana flair.

Some of the Coca Cola racing family. I only took this picture because Tony Stewart was looking directly in my direction and smiling while everyone else was doing other things. And I just wanted another picture of him.

Carl Edwards is the winner. He is also my oldest daughter's favorite driver.

And she is jealous that I got to see the backflip in person.
I am addicted to live NASCAR events now. If I could, I would literally follow them around to every track. Watching them live is so much better than on television. I may have gotten burnt and maybe walked close to 10 miles, but it was so worth it. Will definitely be going back to the Coca Cola 600, hopefully in 2016.
