Not quite “real time” posting, but I finally uploaded some of the pictures I took at the NASCAR race in Phoenix, AZ last weekend. Grace and I spent five days down there and had a blast. We made it out to the track (Phoenix International Raceway, or PIR) for all four days and got to see lots of behind-the-scenes action. Not to mention a sizable amount of souvenir shopping and beer drinking.
The one thing that surprised me about PIR was how big the place is. We walked several miles the first couple of days, checking everything out. Our seats were one section away from the start finish line, so we had a great view of the front stretch and the pits. If I go again, I’d buy tickets sooner to get higher up (we were in row 12). Next year Phoenix will have two race weekend (April and November), so this area is really benefiting from NASCAR.
