Las Vegas Motor Speedway!!

We arrived in at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway mid-day on Wednesday! What a fantastic raceway!!

We have campsites in the paved Checkered Flag RV area just outside of Turn 1. We are, of course, flying our American Flag and the #24 Flag on the motorhome!!
Today we rode our bikes to one of the race shops here for a tour and what did we happen upon, but the #24 hauler unloading the #24 cars into the shop....so of course we had to stop for our photo in front of our favorite hauler.

There are 20 rigs in our group and we were happy to meet up with friends Peg & Earl Farmer (Floridians) and Bill and Carol Sharpe, our HOP hosts, from New York. We were together at the Darlington Race so it's great to see them again!

We had a catered dinner this evening and while we were eating two UPS drivers came by in their UPS golf cart on their way to "Race the Truck" at the end of the hauler parade around the race track. So they joined us for dinner and then we followed them down to the staging area and watched while they drove their specially painted-with-racing-flames UPS truck in the parade and onto the race track!

Look closely to see the FLAMES on the Race Truck!

It is sunny and balmy here, great weather for the race week, so we hope it holds out until the race on Sunday!! Oh, and I bought a special shirt just to wear to the race, for my sister, Wanda. You'll be surprised when you see it...uh..I think it is green!!!

Hay Molly and Bob: It's Saturday at 2:53 pm and are watching the NASCAR race. Just now the cameras panned the rv park area and we actually saw your rig with the American flag and the big "24" flag. Sweet!!!!! Enjoy the rest of the HOP. Love you, Bobbie and Jim plus Beenie and Weenie
