A little bit redneck

Jason is a big Nascar fan. As for me I could do without it, but because he loves it I have taken to at least enjoying it. Every year we go to the Spring race and usually spend a bit of money on the tickets. This year Atlanta Motor Speedway had a deal that the day after the Daytona 500 tickets would sell for the price of the winning car number. Well, the winner was Jamie McMurray the #1 car so yes, tickets went on sale for $1, but there were only 1000 available at the track Monday morning & 1000 available online.

Jason got on the computer a few minutes before tickets were to go on sale and wouldn't you know he was able to get 2 tickets for ONLY $1. We really couldn't believe we were able to get them. The tickets were sold out in 30 seconds. WOW! Saved us at least $80 a ticket. Surprisingly our seats were really good too. We even decided that when we go back we would be tickets in that same section.

So we went a couple of weeks ago to the Atlanta race. My Aunt & Uncle also had tickets (but not $1 tickets) and were sitting a couple of sections over from us. We were able to ride with them and enjoy some delicious food tailgating before the race and after while we waited for traffic to die down. I still can't stop thinking about the brownies...YUM!!

We all had a great time and I love seeing my hubby so excited about racing...even if it is a little bit redneck.

  1. Wow, that's awesome! I can't stand NASCAR, and dad insists that he's not a fan either, but he sure watches an awful lot of it on TV for not being a fan! Looks like you had GREAT seats! What a deal, too. It's fantastic when great things happen to great people!!!
