Feel like I've been packing for a week but then we are camping for the entire 2 week period at the track Looking forward to seeing BV in Nationwide race and hopefully will be signing somewhere. Looking forward to hanging with my race friends and relaxing. If this were 34 hours from now we would be there. I hate that 9 or so hour drive.
Matthew N: So does Buck have the campsite arrangements all figured out? Since no Howard changes things lol. When are you guys heading down? I had to get a new awning put on mine (which is crazy since its not that old!)
Connie ColyerAwesome finish for you and team Friday night in Richmond at Nationwide race BV!
Connie Colyer → Don Rohr: Just lettin you know Don, you are always welcome to our campsites. We will be along side of Matthew and wife. Gary and I will be camped at track the entire 3 week period. Most others coming later in first week.
Matthew N: Haha. I know he does. I texted him yesterday to let him know ill have it and all the channels, like Howard. It will be no problem. :)
Matthew N: I'm bringing my direct tv so there's that. Just saw a pic of Stinkys new one. Very nice!
Connie Colyer → Don Rohr: I'm assuming that your are talking about Howard from Florida (lol). They will not be camping with us but at some point later in the 2nd week will probably stop by to visit since that daugher lives and works in Huntersville.
Matthew N: Talked to him today. Sure doesn't sound like they are going to camp at the track but stay with the girls and just visit. Do you know when Stinky and Mike are coming?
Connie Colyer → Matthew N: Me too Matthew. Only a month away. Are you and T coming up for both weeks for part of one and all of the 2nd week, I forget? Not sure what's going on with Howard and Bobbie - something about selling motorhome to Stinky and hubby. I guess whoever shows... moreMe too Matthew. Only a month away. Are you and T coming up for both weeks for part of one and all of the 2nd week, I forget? Not sure what's going on with Howard and Bobbie - something about selling motorhome to Stinky and hubby. I guess whoever shows up shows up. We have our spaces. Guess when Howard comes up to bring motorhome he will be staying at daughters house. Probably only a few days toward the end of the 2nd week. I don't know, all I know is it is my vacation and I'm going and planning on having a good time. less
Connie ColyerGreat job Brian to bring home a Top 10 for Fed Ex team! Good weekend for you in both races!
Connie ColyerPulling for you this weekend in Texas Brian! Focus is the key word!

As long as you continue to have "drive" in whatever you want to attain in life - good things will follow. Continue to surround yourself with family (first) and friends because there is nothing better no matter what the goal. Class Act - that's YOU!
Connie ColyerBV will drive the wheels off whatever #car he is driving in the next 5-6 weeks. Great opportunity to showcase the talent that has always been there. Wish Denny the best in getting well. Definetly something to make sure is healed before getting back in ANY car.
Connie ColyerHope all have a great Easter weekend. Relax, spend time with your family and try not to eat too much. My hubby and I are going to a Buffet - therefore, I WILL eat a lot! Back to the racing mode next week! Enjoy eveyone.
My job went part time this past year so I am learning to live with less money and spend what I have more wisely. Love going to the races, taking pictures, getting autographs, love my hubby and my cat Misty!
I love to use my camera at races and concerts.<br>I love music so I have attended many concerts in my life. You are reading about someone who is SO OLD she DID see the Beatles in 1966 in Philly.<br>I have made so many friends over the last 30 years just from music.
Life Is Not Always Easy
When watching a race, I eat
anything I get hands on
Variety but I like a lot of new Country like Jimmy Wayne
Charlotte Lowe's Motor Speedway
First race I went to
Races I regularly go to
Charlotte in Spring and Fall and usually Bristol in August.
Have you met Brian Vickers?
Charlotte race week. A lot quieter than it used to be.
Went to my friends brothers memorial service this past weekend after Darlington where we ran very well and had a shot there at the end; just not enough time. All the guys rallied to get us back in position and the long green flag run actually helped us. We'll get there soon. Hopefully you guys enjoy the "off" weekend. I wish I was going to be in the All Star race but not this year. I still would like to have that one back from 2010 when I was out. Going to be in NYC for a few days. Was going to plan a trip but just too many other things to do. Better to stick it one place. Looks like a few of you are planning on coming the whole two weekends.. TROOPERS! enjoy it.
So do you think that some of the lesser teams that don't have as much money, equipment, personnel, etc. should be able to try to qualify their cars for entry into the races (even 43rd place is good money) and then just run 4 or 5 laps and park the car? Do you think it impacts the quality ...
So does anyone else seem to think that we have already seen the heights of NASCAR racing and now it is going down in popularity? I'm not so sure that it is just the economy as a reasoning for lower attendance at the races. We need some excitement stirred back into the pot of NA...
So, what is everyone going to do this off race weekend since it will be Easter. My husband and I are going to enjoy buffet meal at a restaurant we have a gift certificate for! Anything but having to cook for another Holiday if fine with me!
