Not-So Wordless Wednesday - Two for the Price of One!

I was surprised with the top-selling spot within Bank of America's wealth management group (private banking) and given 4 tickets to the Bank of America 500. I offered up the tickets to everyone on my team and was expecting to sit this event out. My team does SO much for me and I thought it would be a great treat to show them how much I appreciate all they do for me. 

 

Two of my assistants had previous plans for Sunday so, I was able to go...and loved every minute of it! We were able to tour the pit, saw some of the drivers and the parade of cars leaving their pits to head out to the line-up before the race. I loved watching the others take in the pit row activities - one is a native Charlottean and had never attended a race! (You know, Charlotte IS NASCAR country!)

 

Best of both worlds*This was our view from the Bank of America suite - with our Carolina Panthers playing on the flat screen TV (right, middle).

 

We were treated to the BOA suite and were totally pampered all day long! They had 3 flat screens in the suite and I asked the catering crew if we could turn one of them to the Carolina Panthers game at 1:00 (race time too)...and they so graciously obliged. We cheered our Panthers on to a win and enjoyed watching the race together in total comfort! 

 

The funny part of the experience: We would be chatting with others in the suite, not paying attention to either the race or the game and suddenly the room would erupt in cheers...we didn't know which to look at - the TV or the track! It was quite a challenge for this somewhat ADD NASCAR attendee!  LOL

It was pretty sweet, Richard Bazinet /MBA, CRS, ABR! I'm used to being the one doing the pampering so, it was nice being on the receiving end! LOL

Hi Endre Barath, Jr.! I would never take what you say the wrong way! So, I had a HUGE issue with the Falcons player who wound up in jail too...thankfully, he's now out of the NFL. 

That said, my Panthers are not a team to kneel, and so far, none have done so. I really don't think our owner would allow it but, then again, you never know what people will do when they get something in their heads! And, who has ever seen a 'protest' during work hours and 'at the office?' Isn't that called a 'strike?' We protest on our OFF time...at least that's what I was raised to believe. There's a difference - again, at least I thought there was!

Happy Thursday, Endre!

Me too, Barbara Todaro - it was definitely a great time and we needed no binoculars - we were front and center!

Have a great day, Barbara!

Oh, it was a fun-packed day - I loved the pit tour. I hadn't been in the pit in decades. My college roommate was a 'Winston girl' and married one of the drivers. So, I spent a lot of time at the races with her. I never had a seat in the stands or was in the infield - only the pit! So, it was fun getting to see the race from a different venue...and be pampered at the same time, Sandy Padula and Norm Padula, JD, GRI NMLS#1483386

My grandson, Ryan would have loved that opportunity.  From the time he was 2 years old he has loved everything NASCAR.  He is currently going to Georgia Tech and is studying mechanical engineering.  Charlotte is one of his favorite places.

Being in a suite like that is like flying first class overseas. It is the only way to go if you get the chance.
