For those of you that couldn't give a rat's ass about NASCAR, tune out now.
27 days and counting until NASCAR returns to Texas Motor Speedway with the Samsung 500 weekend. OK, a couple days earlier if you count practice and qualifying. But this is the Big Kahuna. The April race always draws the biggest crowd at TMS. If the weather follows the long range prediction, it should be perfect racing conditions.
I'm really looking forward to the O'Reilly 300 truck race. The Camping World Series consistently puts on the best racing you'll see. So far it's shaping up to see who'll be the one to knock Kyle Busch off his pedestal. Tickets are still available, and they're cheap.
This year we will be staying in our own campsite. Oh, we'll still be hanging with the same bunch we have for the last few years, but we'll have our own campers and space to retreat to when we need a break. Rumor has it Littlesister will join the fun this year.
The "Skuzzuki", my 4x4 Japanese minitruck, is prepped and ready for campground prowling. It was perfect transportation for us to the track from the campground last race. Walking is for the birds. Trust me when I say that.
Me? I have season tickets in hand and can't wait. I'm still searching for that cute little racegirl to share the experience with.
