Where I stayed
What I did
Charlotte Motor Speedway
We did rather well - Caroline first caught one of the T-Shirts being thrown out, then we won a Coke Drink bottle signed by Ryan Newmarn, Denny Hamlin and Clint Bowyer. Only 9 prizes available to thousands of tickets and we won one of them.
Then finally they had 3 signed T-Shirts - signed by Ryan Newman, Denny Hamlin, Clint Bowyer, Bobby Allison (just included in the Nascar Hall of Fame) and Ned 'Gentleman Driver' Jarrett - twice a Nascar champion and added to the Nascar Hall of Fame. We won it - as they wanted the further travelled to the Race - we came from the UK - we won. The T-Shirt was very much sought after - given it included 5 drivers.
Then we travelled to some of the teams, we visited the Hall of Fame in Mooresville, then the Red Bull Team and finally to the Penske Team.
We have ended up with some highly sought after suverniers and some great memories

Lots of Love
