    Speedbowl14 Ryan Preece and short tracks

    Leaving Wednesday 7am!!!!! 10 hours to Tenessee from Connecticut to watch Stafford Motor Speedway's own Fly'n Ryan Preece. If he ever made it big my buddy and I would go to the Birstol night race no matter the cost and here we are! It's been a crazy trip watching him race for years and years in his modified and this is the culminating point for us.

    YES you can still see your hometown heroes still make it to the big show!

    Got Friday off work, driving up with my bro. All I'm bringing are my tickets, my Kurt Busch and Chase Elliott flags, a sleeping bag and three cases of beer. Right now planning on staying at Hicks White Top Campground, never been though so we'll see when we get there.

    Going to be an interesting race. Kyle Busch has owned the place of late, but Kurt Busch used to be king of the Colisseum. Harvick had one of the best cars in the spring, but started the race several laps behind because of an inspection penalty. Elliott, Hamlin, Logano, and Keselowski all run well there too. Plus it's going to be HOT.

    Kyle or Kurt have won the last 4 Bristol races with Kyle winning three out of 4. Johnson and Harvick make it 5 and 6. Larson has a couple of seconds, Jones has one, Kurt, Boyer and yes Stenhouse second in 2017. The way things are going I wouldn't be surprised if somebody besides these guys wins.

    Are those chances of rain or chances of my sobriety by 10pm each day?

    Must be trekking down 81!! It's a beautiful ride!!

    I can't wait for Saturday!! This race always signaled the end of "Summer Run" and the transition into the "Fall Run" of sorts.

    I sure hope it’s a good race. I always looked forward to this one. In my book it was THE race to watch.

    The military themed cars that have been run this year are mighty, mighty sexy.

    Made it to Bristol... but...the adventure is never complete without it's bumps. I forgot that I seperated my tent poles from the canvas and ended up forgetting the poles back in Connecticut. Now my buddy and I are sharing a tiny $35 Walmart tent but it's all good I'm in Bristol

    This is my favorite race of the year!

    In 2014 my parents went to this race.. we got them tickets for Christmas and that morning I told my Dad "Just so you know, Joey is going to win that race".. I got laughed at and told if he was leading in the closing laps my dad was going to throw a beer can at his car.. he got his chance.. he never did throw that beer can though :D

    12 years and counting coming. Just got into town about an hour ago. We do the hotel thing because after I turned 30 the campgrounds here are just not for me anymore. Hoping for a great race weekend and that #12 in victory lane Saturday night.
