Yesterday, the Nerd and I headed to Texas Motor Speedway for Chevy Fan Day, courtesy of Chevy DFW.
I had never been to a NASCAR event, and I’m still processing a lot of what we saw and experienced. I have TONS of photos to go through and edit (and share with you all!)
But the coolest things we got to do was go on a hot lap with Jeff Gordon. I took along my video camera so you could experience it, too.
It was so much fun! Jeff told us that they asked him to stay at or below 90 mph during the lap, but then he wouldn’t say how fast he was going. Naughty, naughty.
Luckily, The Nerd was sitting in the back seat with a clear view of the speedometer — he said it passed 130 mph.
Have you ever been to a NASCAR race? Who’s your favorite driver?
I promise more pics (and stories) soon!
