I have a nephew's birthday party on Indy 500 Sunday (Coke 600 Sunday). Second year in a row this has happened. Not happy at all. There are a few Sunday's that a sacred to me each year: Daytona 500 Sunday, WrestleMania Sunday, Memorial Day Weekend Sunday, and Southern 500 Sunday.This is my favorite weekend of the year -- Indy AND the 600. My family knows to not call me on this particular day. LOL
Yeah, my wife already said "I'm burnt out, no to 600." I told her not to worry as it was all but sold out anyway. We'll grill, party at pool, pay our respects to our veterans and watch on tv.I'm Wilkesboro'd out. Back to the regular season schedule........ and its back with a Crown Jewel. One of my favorite races and weekends of the year. Lets go.
Thats the way to do it, I've never had a bad time at my house watching a race while having the grill going. Especially if there's a pool involved.Yeah, my wife already said "I'm burnt out, no to 600." I told her not to worry as it was all but sold out anyway.

Our neighborhood pool opens this weekend. Too cold of water for my old behind, but the kids love it and I'm always cool with a hot grill and cold beverage with my neighborhood friends.Thats the way to do it, I've never had a bad time at my house watching a race while having the grill going.

an outdoor tv is next for my outdoor oasis, sounds like you got a hell of a one yourself. I gotta figure out how to hang on the back wood paneling of my house. Then I can just stream from Ipad to smart TVIf I could procure an inflatable screen and adequate projector, it would be an awesome pool party and/or bonfire opportunity. I used to love 600 day and grilling with my dad when I was younger as we lived in Rowan county and were somehow right in the flyover flight pattern for the fighters. We could usually grill and look up and see the planes turn and burn towards the speedway during the anthem. Saw F22s, F15s, Stealth Bomber once...
I must stress it's the neighborhood pool, not my backyard. I just have a place for my solo stove and a covered area with a Blackstone.an outdoor tv is next for my outdoor oasis, sounds like you got a hell of a one yourself.

This will be my second Memorial Day in Utah. Love racing starting at 6am and being done by 9pm.
Too bad our beer laws suck lol
I wish the Truck Series or IndyCar would get a shot at Utah Motorsports Campus. It’s a world class facility, shaded seating, Pocono style frontstretch longer than Road America.
I know I keep hoping something comes this way. I think it will with this area expanding massively as one of the the fastest growing states the last 30 years. SLC is perfect. 5 hours from Vegas and 5 hours from Denver it would definitely draw from those areas as well.
We have the Supercross championships and that was nearly sold out (45k) a couple weeks ago. Of course dirt bikes are HUGE out here so tough comparison on how Indycar or NASCAR would do.
I think as long as NASCAR is doing 2 races a year in Vegas it's a tough sell to get a series in Utah. My buddy and I went to Vegas last year for the race and loved it we're making it an annual tradition.
Here is the 10 day for the Charlotte area. Sunday 76 and 24%.Weather here is calling for 63 degrees Saturday and only 70 Sunday, 50% chance of liquid sunshine. Yay. Might have a Monday 600

Expensive ticket that is over $112 todayI attend my my 1st World 600 at the Charlotte Power Unit Speedway in 1978.
Darrel Waltrip won in the Digard Gatorade # 88 Chevy. Pearson won the pole in the Wood Brothers Mercury. Petty raced a Dodge Magnum and would finally go to a Chevrolet before the season ended.
My ticket in the Ford Tower cost $25. I cut a lot of grass to earn the money for my ticket.
When I went in 1988 to my first Cup race (Oakwood 500) the ticket in the Chrysler section off 4 was $60. That blew my 11 year old mind at the time. I was used to $5 or $8 when it was BGN at Orange County. Now the seats I like to get at Charlotte are ~$200 (Club Deck)Expensive ticket that is over $112 today
Can you not stock up on BEER on Saturday? Just curious.
