Nascar website said maybe a start at 9e/8c...Chance of rain goes down to 40% then..I'll dvr it since the CMA are on @7...Loving me some country music tonight..Yee Haw...Has it started yet?
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 tracksI think I'd rather do Road Atlanta in some type of cart. Going around in circles doesn't do it for me.
Trust me. At 170 mph it will!I think I'd rather do Road Atlanta in some type of cart. Going around in circles doesn't do it for me.
Trust me, it satisfies your need for speed!! I was clocked at 187 MPH on the back stretch!!! YEE HAW!!I think I'd rather do Road Atlanta in some type of cart. Going around in circles doesn't do it for me.
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!!!
