Day 1 at NASCAR is Awesome!

Day 1 was awesome! I am not a likely NASCAR fan, mainly due to my ignorance about the sport. But I am learning so much during my weekend at Infineon Raceway in Sonoma, California. I can’t believe the teamwork, coordination and precision that goes into absolutely everything!

I waived to flag to start the race and I also waved the checkered flag! All drivers have to qualify to race on Sunday (here's information about the Sprint Cup race), even if they have won all prior events.

I loved being right there by the “pit” with the drivers getting in and out of their cars. They are so calm and intense at the same time. I was also amazed with how fit they are! Excited to see more... Here are a few photos.

UPDATE: Here's the video...

As you'll see, I'm proudly wearing my USANA shirt everywhere!
