Bristol Motor Speedway Review (Economy and a little luck)
Last Tuesday went to get the rig state inspection and a little ride. Everything was fine and went well. Not much work in my trade yet so… Got the bug to go on a road trip. Quick clean, safety check, de-winterized, food, fuel, the house cat and went on my way. No reservations or tickets. Called the track - tickets still available and plenty of off track camping. Left Wed at 3:00pm arrived Thursday at 2:00pm (875 miles). Called Farmer Bob’s camp ground (across the street in back of track) they had spaces but on a whim tried the track campground, the gate people had info on a gentleman who had an extra camping space for sale. Made a quick purchase and headed up to parking site. Area was unassigned sites. Parked to look around and was invited by a very nice couple to park next to them right in the front row. Had the best dry camp site with a view. Upper level on Thunder Valley dragway overlooking the lower tier camping and dragway watching the helicopters land in my non-track time. Wound up with a great neighbor on my patio side as well. Went down to track Friday purchased tickets for all three days from non-track personnel. Great seats in the Pearson Terrace. I guess all this is the fruits of a bad economy but I just wanted to give a great big thanks and report that everyone at the track from and in between the young man who directed me to the camp check-in building, the young lady in the check-in building who directed me to the nice gentleman who had the extra camp site, the hospitable neighbors and even the “non-track” ticket salesman who sold me the great seats that lead to a great first Bristol experience. Thank You All. The track was great, the Legend racing was great, the fans were great. So if your fortunate and able to take a trip, fill a seat and support the sport you love, please do so as we all need you there. New Hampshire next?
