The week-away countdown is on! NASCAR is going to be in Las Vegas and for the 3rd year in a row....I'll be there! Literally...the week after we get back from Vegas, I'm already looking forward to going the next year! We usually pull our camper down and stay at the track, but this year we're staying IN VEGAS at the PALMS! I CAN'T WAIT!

I'm sure you've noticed that I bolded some things.....well....I happen to be a die-hard MATT KENSETH/FORD/ROUSH FENWAY RACING fan. :) I do have other favorites, such as Joey Logano #20 Home Depot, but I do get the most excited to see Matt or a Roush Fenway car do well.

If you aren't a NASCAR fan, I used to be you. :) Until I went to a race.......so maybe give it a shot someday. You might surprise yourself and become addicted.......
