This weekend was an opportunity for Tronster to visit his family in South Carolina. These plans had been made for about a month in advance. Most of my family lives in South Carolina. The week before Tronster and Sunshine go to visit, Tronster's Uncle decides to bring his Family to DC for some site seeing. Well, I let them stay at my place. The came to watch the Nationals game, which, of coarse the Nationals lost.
While I was in South Carolina, I had the chance to go to the Big NASCAR race in Charlotte NC. The Coca-Cola 600. The longest race of the season. I bought a ticket for Sister, Sunshine, and I. We drove 2.5 hours to Concord NC. Walked about a mile, had some Hot Dogs and Burgers with friends, and then proceeded to the Track. The opening ceremonies were great, the fly by was cool, but then no "Gentlemen, Start your engines" We wait, and wait, and wait....nothing. The race was suppose to start at 545 and at 830 the decided to cancel the race.
So, I have purchased tickets to two NASCAR events. Both have been canceled due to circumstances beyond my control. I guess now I know, don't plan on going to a race with me.
