My AMS Camping Trip

Atlanta is the fourth track I have been to, and is my second consecutive trip out there.

Of the four (Talladega, Charlotte and Bristol being the others) I have quickly concluded AMS is the worst when it comes to traffic. It makes me wonder if this hurts attendance. Speaking of which….

I hear that TV didn’t hide the fact there were a lot of empty seats. From my vantage point, the Elliot grandstands looked fuller than they have ever been. My section off of turn 4 seemed to be pretty decent as well. (This was $1 ticket section, so I would expect them to be full.) However, all the empty seats in the tri-oval were very discouraging.

Not really racing related, but I hate this weather. I couldn’t sleep despite having numerous layers of clothing on, and while the daytime was great, it felt like 100 because I was still wearing my winter clothing.

I am sure most of you reading this have heard of Speed’s new program, Fast Track to Fame. For those that haven’t it is an American Idol/America’s got talent type of show. Go perform in front of three judges and the people watching at home. Like many people, I thought this sounded rather silly, not to mention old. I got to go to this weeks show in Atlanta. And while I still believe the show won’t make it, I had a blast fun hanging out the judges and other fans in the crowd; I even asked Mikey if he would let me drive the dream machine!

Thanks for reading, my thoughts about the actual race will be posted later on.
