Another week, and another rain delay. The Duck Commander 500 at Texas Motor Speedway has been rescheduled to start at 3:15 E.T.
My brother and I did it at Atlanta Motor Speedway a few years ago. It's an awesome experience. We did the ride along first. Ride with a professional driver. It helped get acclimated to the speed. Then I was on my own!The rain delays are getting to be a pain in the tail!! Oh well, I enjoy the races no matter when they start. Heck, I went to the track the year the Atlanta spring race was canceled due to SNOW!!! I had the thought of putting snow tires or chains on the cars and turning them loose. That would have been a hoot!!!
I am a fan though. My daughter paid for me to do the Richard Petty Driving Experience at Atlanta Motor Speedway......TWICE!!!!

I have done both in a kart and a car. Lol. Oval racing is a blast. Plus sanctioning bodies little more tolerant of bumping,rubbing and moving guys in oval track. Not so much in with the road coarse gang. Don't ask how I know 15 years driving fender cars on short tracks
Trust me, it satisfies your need for speed!! I was clocked at 187 MPH on the back stretch!!! YEE HAW!!
Very cool story!!Trust me, it satisfies your need for speed!! I was clocked at 187 MPH on the back stretch!!! YEE HAW!!
In 1969, I drove a Dick Harrell owned 427 Super Stock Camaro in the World Points Final at Kansas City International Raceway. Dick had 2 funny cars and 3 super stock cars entered in the race. There was not enough of Dick to go around. Dick drove one funny car and one super stocker. He hired a pro driver named T.L. Walker to drive the other funny car and one of the other super stockers. He grabbed a 16 year old wild man, that we all know today as The Lineman, to drive the remaining super stocker!! I will never forget going from zero to 183 MPH in a standing quarter mile in less than 10 seconds!! OMG!!!
