Gold Cup Race

Two weeks ago my mom and I went to the Gold Cup Sprint Car Race. As I mentioned in a previous post, this is the biggest Sprint Car race of the Year. It just so happens to be held in my hometown. So, though it is not cheap to go, mom treated me as this is our thing we like to do together.

We arrived early to get our tickets and seats and spent some time goofing around with our cameras.

Excited for the Race!

If you know me well, you know that I am kinda obsessed with my phone at times. I gets lots of phone calls some days and I text a lot.

See?

Then mom and I took some pics of the track.

I had randomly taken pics of the above car and then he ended up winning the race! Too funny.

The 4-wide salute to fans is the prettiest formation in sprint car racing. This is the drivers salute to thank the fans for their support.

Later in the race. I have hat hair!

So, that is our night at the races. We had SO much fun. I was not feeling too hot, but was glad to make it anyway. There are actually two more races next month for some championships. We should be able to make one of them, but the second one we will be at my nephew’s birthday party! Hope you enjoyed the pics. Mom and I love our racing nights!
